Obamacare company shutdown leaves customers in a lurch, facing higher costs

“This could be very disruptive for people who either liked Land of Lincoln’s provider network or had met their deductible and other out-of-pocket limits,” said Stephani Becker, a health-care policy analyst at the Chicago-based Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law.

Basically, people switched over to this company when Blue Cross eliminated plans and they either wanted to keep doctors the alternate plan didn’t allow or they couldn’t afford the alternate plan. But the smaller company wasn’t able to keep up with Obamacare and they, too, are now gone, and all of these people are left in the lurch. Also left in the lurch are people who went with them originally because of doctors or affordability.

So really, the more affordable plans are being shut down because they can’t be sustained under Obamacare.

Really, this was for the best. This is progress.
