Obamacare Even More Confusing After Exchange Operator Rejects Change

rubiccubeThe Rubik’s Cube that is healthcare reform might have become even more puzzling for some people Thursday after the operator of California’s online insurance exchange rejected President Obama’s call for extending the life of canceled policies. Covered California said it’ll stick with its Dec. 31 deadline. All plans that don’t comply with the requirements of Obamacare must go adios by that day. Unless, that is, they’ve been grandfathered in. “Medicare isn’t part of the health insurance marketplace established by ACA, so you don’t have to replace your Medicare coverage with marketplace coverage,” says the federal government’s Medicare.gov website. “No matter how you get Medicare, whether through original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan, you’ll still have the same benefits and security you have now,” it says according to a recent Op-Ed piece in MedCityNews.com.
