I told you that the math behind last month’s Obamacare enrollment “success” story doesn’t add up, Save Jerseyans.
Here’s more hard proof via NJ.com, where it’s being reported that 1,800 more Garden State families received cancellation notices last week:
The Affordable Care Act — the federal law that mandates everyone have insurance — effectively killed FamilyCare Advantage, a low-cost option for kids in New Jersey created six years ago for parents who earned too much to qualify for Medicaid and other subsidized programs but too little to buy on a policy on their own. The state program was the first of its kind in the nation.
Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey was the only insurance carrier that agreed to offer the FamilyCare Advantage plan, which covered most medical, dental and vision needs for the relative bargain of $144 a month per child.
But it didn’t offer mental health treatment and several other services Obamacare requires, and that was the fatal flaw, said Sen. Joseph Vitale (D-Middlesex), who sponsored the law creating the program.
ObamaCare’s masters claim 7.1 million “sign ups” as of April 1st. Even if it’s true, they can’t seem to account for the 30 million who they said were uninsured before Obamacare even existed or the millions (including 800k+ just right here in New Jersey) who’ve lost coverage.
You don’t have to be an ideologue or health care policy expert to understand what a crock of sh*t this is, Save Jerseyans. The numbers don’t add up.
