If this doesn't bring tears to your eyes, you're sick.

Bard, it seems to me that you're an easy mark. Do you often find that such empty ads catch you hook, line and sinker?

swchandler,

Are you saying that story is false OR that it couldn't happen?

This doesn't bring tears to my eyes and I'm not sick.

A profit driven health insurance co. kept a cancer patient's "presumably average cost" private policy for five years with all those expensive treatments? What kind of business model do they use? PIPE DREAM!

reinerehlers, what story? There really isn't a story, it's simply an anti-ACA ad. If I'm to be convinced that we have a problem, there needs to be substantial discussion that includes a lot of persuasive data. I know that there was a real problem before the passage of the ACA. More folks needed to take responsibility for themselves and have some skin in the game, and the ACA goes a long way in making it happen. Is it perfect? No, but that's not the point. There's no going back. If the ACA is to be changed, it will have to be done in a responsible and well thought out manner. Airhead ads promoting tired Republican talking points just doesn't measure up in my book.

So that's not happening, is that what you're saying?

My sister had her ins. cancelled when she got cancer. They offered her another policy for $2500 a month in 1985- equal to $10Kmonth.
in modern dollars. The difference was that they did not have the ACA to blame it on in political ads.

My own ins. has been cancelled three times, inc. once seven months ago.
The last time was explained by We don't offer that policy anymore.
Each time they would have used Ocare as an excuse if they could have.
I might have qualified to be paid in an ad, darn it.

Some of these ads have been investigated. They were misrepresentations of the type common to all political ads.

To answer your question RR, yes the process of canceling folks is still going on like always but when the ACA kicks in, patients can call the ins. on it .
One good thing about the ACA reforms.

Oh, by the billions and billions, I bet. Maybe trillions, quadrillions, and quintillions.

Just ask Fox.
