KAISER HEALTH NEWS: They thought they were buying Obamacare plans. What they got wasn’t insurance.

They thought they were buying Obamacare plans. What they got wasn’t insurance.
Some consumers who think they are signing up for Obamacare insurance find out later they actually purchased a membership to a health care sharing ministry. But regulators and online advertising sites don’t do much about it.

  1. There’s no doubt she was scammed … but essentially it was her own fault for not doing more research. She probably based her decision on $$$. Not at all uncommon. Very few people take the time and effort to investigate and research before making major decisions. Beyond that … as the article points out, these shyster companies are very adept at promoting themselves.

    1. Hello Nan. Yes to all, and I think you hit it best with the these shyster companies are very adept at promoting themselves. I have heard a few legal podcasts on them, one of the lawyers testified to how bad the problem is at a federal congressional hearing. It is a large scam going around as the article says. But why is it so popular? Because healthcare costs are so damn high and insurance is so expensive to make the maximum profit.

      I don’t know if you read my reply to Roger earlier about my dentist appointment where they first wanted $475 then today after I told the hygienist no she gave me a new price of over $700. I have a diabetic medication I am refusing to pick up due to them wanting $458 dollars for one month. But with strict dieting and the use of insulin I am doing just as well on my blood sugars. Anyway the average people in the US are struggling to feed themselves, house themself, and to have medical coverage. It is really hard for the lower 70% to live in the US these days. Hugs
