Another year, another adventure in Obamacare for Bob. We added cartoons so people might continue reading because Mike from the "Phannie and Mae" blog says it increases readership.
Bob lost his what he thought was expensive retiree medical coverage because Honeywell said there would multiple choices of cheap individual coverage available under Obamacare. Honeywell must have been drinking the Kool-Aid because it wasn't cheap then and it is getting more expensive and less available.
In his first year of Obamacare Bob went with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas and a PPO plan since we travel year round. After one year under Obamacare BCBS lost so much money that they have dropped all PPO plans. This year there were a lot less plans available and they cost more. Bob signed up with United Healthcare who shortly thereafter announced it was likely that 2016 would be its last year in Obamacare. Furthermore they stated they regretted getting involved at all. Obama got what he wanted, bipartisan support.
A couple timely with Christmas and Putin.
Finally this is how Bob feels, and he has a few more years before Medicare.
Who thought you would be looking forward to Medicare. It's not all negative with Obama as he has accomplished a couple of things that we will give him credit for. Jimmy Carter is no longer the worst President and Medicare is looked upon more favorably. Thankfully Bob can no longer say that he voted for the worst President twice.
Till next time,
Bob and Jo
