If a "vast majority" of stories are being debunked, you might as well start with the horror stories on the HealthCare.gov facebook page.
Janet King Beckett: Again, the Affordable Health Care Act is not for everyone. I found that out when I discovered the BRoNZE plan would cost us $6K each in my family. And that's the bottom of the barrel plan. Good luck y'all!!! We are all screwed because of this stupid government program. Another tax on the middle class!!
Susan Hille Swift: I NEED HELP!! I just hung up with yet another insurance rep. Our family of 4 has been self insured since we lost our coverage 2 years ago. We bought a bare bones plan as we're scraping by and that's all we can afford. It works for us. Now my family is getting hit with a 154% monthly increase! There's NO way we can afford this, but it gets worse! Under the new 'bare bones' plan that Obama is forcing on us, we'll pay $45 for every doctor visit which is always OUR cost alone and is never counted towards a deductible. Insurance does help us pay for other 'special' services' but we'll still pay 100% of those costs until we hit $2,000 PER PERSON! We’ll then pay 30% of all costs and insurance will pick up 70%. Since we’re healthy, we will never hit our deductibles and will never see a benefit. But there's more! Apparently, another detail has been withheld from all of us...Obama’s law also forces everyone to purchase pediatric dental insurance. That cost is not even included in these premiums. Our family is done! Cooked, broke; priced out of insuring our own family for the 1st time in our lives. And now we’ll be forced to pay fines for losing our health care. What about the subsidies you ask? The subsidies that we 'may' qualify for would help as our premiums would ONLY increase by 80%! But it puts us right where the government wants us; at their almighty feet begging for scraps to live on. With OUR own tax money; to help us pay for something that we'd paid long before they decided to 'help' us! We self-insured people are getting the first and hardest hit, but you ARE next because there is no way the US can afford to pay for all of this unless we ALL give it up.
Ann Wilde Clayton: I would like to know how long you have to wait to hear from anyone after you have uploaded documents to verify the income you will make in 2014. I can't do anything further to sign up til I hear back. The help center can't help. They haven't a clue. How many weeks should I wait? I have to sign up by Dec 31 because my present insurance expires. And I must sign up in the marketplace to get the subsidy for BCBS insurance which TRIPLED my premium from what I am paying now.
