As I mentioned, Obamacare is going away, even if Trump doesn’t repeal it. Insurance companies can’t make money within the system, so they are taking their ball and going home.
As commenter Susan noted: “Obamacare was never intended to be permanent. It was indeed intended to destroy the finest healthcare system in the world, and replace it with single payer.”
That is an astute observation. Obamacare was intended to replace the best healthcare system in the world with one that would end up being run like the VA hospitals.
Next year, if not sooner, I will be redoing my healthcare plan again. There are alternatives to Obamacare. Cost sharing organizations like mychristiancare.org or Samaritan Ministries are worth a look. There is a form that you fill out when you do taxes so that you don’t have to pay the Obamacare penalty. At this point they are the leading candidates in my mind for health care planning.
I’ve been with Christian Healthsharing Ministries for almost two years now, and have no complaints. Takes a bit of adjustment and learning at first.
Each health sharing org is a bit different – CHM, Solidarity, Samaritan, etc -, so taking the time to research each is worth it.
Each is a bit different, and many if not most complaints I’ve seen about health sharing organizations seem to stem from misunderstandings of how they worked.
Thanks for your response.
