Progressive Friend of mine told me Fox had a segment on about a lady's insurance was going from $50 / month to $250 a month. Course they didn't check out details... seems the lady's policy had a $25,000 deductible and maxed out at $50K... i.e only catastrophic and even then limited (scam policy). Her new policy had standard deductible ($500) and had no upper limit + covered preventative, and many other things like mental health !! Apples & lemons.
Even so your daughter saves $720 / yr and has better coverage.
One thing ACA does is to prevent "scam policies" that the owner will probably NEVER use !! They must meet some minimum standards !!
A lady a TJC Professor knew worked in the Goodyear plant in Tyler for > 25 years. When she was 55, they closed the plant and moved it to Mexico! She lost her job and her insurance. About 9 months later she was diagnosed with breast cancer but had NO insurance and couldn't get any now because she has a pre-existing condition ! She DIED from it < 1 year later !! HAD she been >65, she could have been treated (under Medicare or Medicaid) and maybe survived, but at 56 she had NOTHING !! How fair is that ??
