Obamacare Cancellations Increasing

obamacare-cancellations-increasingEach day we read reports of Americans receiving cancellation notices from their insurance companies because of Obamacare.  The numbers are shocking.  Obamacare cancellations increasing despite the fact that it was sold as a way to reduced the number of uninsured, but so far more policies have been cancelled than new policies issued under Obamacare.

Nov 5, 2013 – 73,000 More Marylanders Grapple With Dropped Insurance Plans – Sun
Oct 29, 2013 – Obama Admin Knew Millions Could Not Keep Their Health Ins – NBC
Oct 29, 2013 – More Than 2M Americans Cannot Renew Current Health Insurance – CBS

The number of Obamacare cancellations increasing but this is the total so far:

-300,000 in Florida.

-160,000 from Kaiser in California.

-119,000 from Blue Shield in California.

-800,000 in New Jersey.

-24,000 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

-76,000 from CareFirst in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

Or about 1.5 million cancellations so far.  And that number is growing because more notices have gone out for which I don’t have numbers. Cancellation notices have gone out in Alabama, Georgia, and North Carolina.  We also know that Humana has cancelled policies in Maryland. Unfortunately, no numbers are available thus far in those cases.

One analyst thinks that up 16 million people could have their policies cancelled.

Of course, who can forget this promise:
