87,000 in Alabama cancelled already

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama recently notified about 87,000 policy holders in the state that their individual health plans will no longer be available after Dec. 31.

Blue Cross spokeswoman Koko Mackin said in an email that the plans did not meet the new requirements under the Affordable Care Act for 2014.

“To provide a smooth transition, our members were offered the option to be automatically enrolled in a new ACA-compliant plan comparable with their current coverage, or to choose from any of our new individual health plans during the six-month open enrollment period,” Mackin said.

The 87,000 policy holders amount to 4 percent of Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s members in Alabama. They include those who purchase individual plans to cover themselves and those who buy family coverage.

Don’t worry, here comes the government to help!

Mackin said customers were also informed that they might be eligible for financial assistance with their premiums and cost sharing.

More government dependency is always the answer and the goal…
