Is this how Obamacare unravels?
More than half of Obamacare's 23 approved healthcare cooperatives announced they were closing up shop because they were simply losing too much money.
The reality is that the risk corridor has been a disaster. Insurers have requested $2.87 billion to help cover excessive losses tied to Obamacare plans, but they'll be receiving just 12.6% of this amount, or $362 million -- a nearly $2.5 billion shortfall. This is why more than half of Obamacare's co-ops went belly up, and it could be another reason UnitedHealth Group has threatened to leave the Obamacare marketplace exchanges.

Is Obamacare (Affordable care Act) going to be around much longer or disappear due to rising costs?
What I find interesting is that conservatives fought tooth and nail against this and were characterized as neanderthalic (if that is a word) and insensitive. So much has backfired the way those insensitive folks described that why don't we hear about them being prophets?
In my market area, a number of people ages 60+ received notices that they cannot retire with full SS benefits until age 66 or 67. However, when they reached age 65, their insurance under Obamacare was cancelled without notice on the last date of their birthday month. Next, they received notices on Nov 30 that they had only until Dec 7 to apply for mandatory Medicare.
It seems that the ADA is not working for people ages 65 - 67 at this time. An overhaul seems needed.
Yes, that's how it works. You may not carry private insurance and have medicare at the same time, so it is canceled. At the same time, medicare becomes your "insurance carrier", with an option to purchase additional insurance to expand medicare. Everyone that turns 65 has it happen.

I just received a call from one of my health care providers. I've been on oxygen at night for four years now after sleep studies showed that my 02 level dropped to dangerous levels while I slept. Guess what? Medicare no longer wants to pay for it because they're "cutting back." My doctors...
