The CBO and Progressive-Democrats in Congress loudly claim that millions will lose their health coverage plans under Republican plans to repeal and replace Obamacare.
What the Progressive-Democrats are carefully ignoring (the CBO not so much; they weren’t tasked with comparing the Republican plans and Obamacare) are the real millions that already are losing or are about to lose their health coverage plans because Obamacare is collapsing now.
The nation’s second largest health insurance company, Anthem, will extract itself from the majority of the ObamaCare market in the state of Ohio by 2018, the company announced Tuesday, raising questions about the future of its exchange participation.
The decision could leave 20 counties within the state without access to coverage under the Affordable Care Act[.]
Anthem is considering leaving Obamacare altogether in the not-too-distant future.
Anthem handles over a million customers in the health coverage market, now considerably fewer under Obamacare, and perhaps shortly none at all. Nor is Anthem alone in being unable to continue under Obamacare. Aetna and Humana will be leaving next year, and those customers will be losing their coverage.
Those people actually, not speculatively, are losing their coverage.
