Hard to believe, but apparently some people never read InsureBlog. Probably some of the same folks that thought you could wait until you are sick to buy insurance.
"I have people that can buy insurance, but the companies shut them down. They won't take the applications," insurance broker Steve Bobiak of Frackville, Pa., said. "We're a free country. You should be able to buy anything anytime you want."Yahoo News
Steve, have you been under a rock for the last 6 months? Have you been spending too much time with Pelosi?
As for freedom, that was given up in 2008 when there were people who voted for free stuff over hard work and initiative.
Bobiak, whose NICA Benefits company helps people buy insurance in New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania, said he learned only a couple of weeks ago that insurers were cutting off new policies.You must have been absent the day that was taught in the certification classes. Heck, even carriers knew this day was coming. Wonder why they never told you?
Maybe they just assumed you knew it.
"It's lousy communication out there," he said. "If we don't know, my God, how do they expect other people to know? It's terrible."
A survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation in mid-March found that 6 out of 10 people without insurance weren't aware of the marketplace deadline on March 31.
Six out of 10.
That would be the low information crowd.
Wonder if anyone told Steve the widely reported claim that you could wait until you get sick to buy health insurance is false as well?
I guess Steve doesn't read InsureBlog either.
