Obamacare has booted ex-MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan from his health insurance plan. Ratigan stirred up social media when he tweeted that his inexpensive catastrophic health coverage got cancelled, for which he thanked the president. President Obama repeatedly declared that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan” when he was selling healthcare reform via the Affordable Care Act to the American people, but this is not is not holding true for those who buy their insurance directly on the individual market. Obamacare on a one-size-fits-all basis requires insurers to cover 10 so-called essential benefits which rules out many cafeteria/catastrophic plans that many Americans prefer in the context of their budget and/or income. As a result, consumers will be compelled to pay for additional coverage that they neither want nor need and/or which may be inappropriate for their age or gender. No one needs to hold a bake sale for Dylan Ratigan. As a former high-profile media personality, Ratigan probably is well-fixed enough financially to afford higher premiums in the Obamacare environment.
No bake sale for Dylan Ratigan, gets chopped due to strange ingredients.
