Obama Care Lies
‘How many times have you heard President Obama say, ‘Health insurers won’t be able to drop your coverage just because you get sick?’
It has been illegal since 1997, under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, for insurers to drop coverage because someone gets sick.
It almost always happens because the insurance application form is discovered to have fraudulent, misleading or simply wrong information on it. Rescissions are very rare. They apply only to the individual market (less than 10% of private health insurance) and even then they occur less than 4/10ths of 1% of the time. Even when it does happen, there is almost always an appeals process where the decision is reviewed by an internal committee and often submitted to outside reviewers.
Further, when insurers are wrong – as they may sometimes be – it is the job of state regulators to correct this injustice.’
