Three Strikes...

Pamela Weldon played by the rules, and for her efforts, she's outta luck:

"[CoOpportunity]'s liquidation marked the third time she would lose her health insurance under Obamacare, the third time she would head to to shop for coverage, and the third time she would have to purchase a brand new plan."

On the bright side, she now has an extra coupla months to sign up (maybe), but woe unto her if she has any claims in the meantime. She believed the lie that if she liked her plan, she could keep it; suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome for over a dozen years, she was satisfied with her Humana plan, but was forced to find a new ObamaPlan when her plan was cancelled.

No problem, thought she, and headed to the site, where she attempted - for two months! - to obtain coverage. She finally got coverage from CoOpportunity, and we all know how that turned out.

She also believed the lie that "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor:" as with all the ObamaTax promises, this one had an expiration date. Turns out, her regular physician wasn't in her new plan's network. Luckily for the 58 year old Ms Weldin, though, her plan did cover birth control convenience items.

It actually just goes from bad to worse: her plan of choice was no longer offered, then the carrier itself assumed room temp. She eventually found a plan that included her preferred doc, but at a much steeper rate.

But hey, that's the new paradigm, no?
