Obamacare: If you like your doctor... go to hell

Obamacare off cliff 2

 

I fully expected this, and here it is.  I received this letter from Cigna, my health insurer, today.  In the nicest possible way they told me to Go To Hell and gave me full directions.

The cover letter reads “your current medical plan will not be offered, not will any other Cigna medical plan, in your geographic area.”  In other words, we’re leaving and goodbye and if you like your doctor, find some chickens and sheep to give him after we’re gone because that’s all you’re going to be able to afford.

We’re already done a stint with Blue Cross/Anthem–and they cancelled their plan too.

Prior to this I received a notice that my doctor (whom I’ve seen for the past nearly two decades) is no longer in my network as of October 1.  So therefore I have coverage but it’s worthless.

This is Obamacare in action.  The marketplace has failed, and the liberals yell Hallelujah so they can hurry up and implement single payer healthcare.  Or Trump will get into office and do the same thing.

This feeling of doom is spreading down my left leg, but I can’t see a doctor for it, because although I technically have “health coverage” (in scare quotes) for which I pay a hefty premium, it’s about a useful as a propane cylinder on a charcoal grill.
