    the PPACA is a POS compromise. if you'll take a look at my earlier posts, you'll see that i offered several potential proposals to pay for real UHC.

    Obamacare 'Abortion Surcharge': The Facts Behind The Rumor

    Seems like a fairly comprehensive review to me - do you dispute the finds contained in the article?
    From your link. Any abortion coverage is separate from and does not affect rates in the plans as you claimed.
    If a state decides it does want to have health plans that cover abortion services on its exchange, and if a woman chooses one of those plans, then she has to pay a separate fee of at least $1 to a separate account for that coverage in order to make sure no federal dollars are used to support abortion services.

    What are your deductibles on your new policy versus the old one, and if what you're posting is accurate, why would your current provider cancel the policy?

    They are canceling because the high risk pool is closing.

    Now who's "thick"? How does that one snippet from the article prove in any way your strong contention that the ACA does not provide for coverage of abortions?

    You might consider apologizing for the gratuitous slag of my comments, but I won't hold my breath waiting.

    Their current insurance sucked. Soon they will have real insurance. The horror.

    So you're leaving a high risk pool and getting cheaper coverage. That seems logical given the way the program was set up...

    They have lost nothing. They must simply pick a different plan that meets minimum coverage standards. People change plans all the time. A lot of those that get sick will be very grateful they changed too.

    Less money, less research. You folks seem to think you can slash huge chunks of cash out of an industry that is mainly R&D and not affect R&D.

    The mental health coverage might be a good idea, CJ, considering what's going on in DC. Not for them, but for us! Anything that helps explain the idiocy we see on a daily basis might be worthwhile!

    Good evening, CJ.
