Because many individual health plans are inadequate, those who hold them are receiving notices their health plans are cancelled. That is because the plans do not meet the minimum standards set by the Health Care Act or Obamacare. Once these people sign up for the Health Care Act, they will save money and get really wonderful benefits. Yes, the Web site has to be fixed, but with the overwhelming response that was not anticipated, it crashed. Also, Congress did not appropriate enough money so a really good team good be put in place. One of my Republican friends said she heard they allotted 500 million dollars, but that simply is not true. I don't know where she got this information. Lots of lies are being told, unfortunately. To date four hundred million dollars has been spent by the Koch brothers and others for advertisments against the Health Care Act. How wonderful it would have been if that money could have gone to help poor people, particularly kids.
Those who cannot afford insurance will be given subsidies. One number to call to get started with the new insurance is 1-800-318-2596. I am not sure if this is just for California, but the people there could give the proper number for another state.
