Last week I posted a picture of a woman getting an ultrasound. This meme is meant to demonstrate the good that the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare will do to help prevent illness in women through better access to screening procedures. The problem with this is the complete incorrect use of the word “Prevention”.
If you have an insurance plan younger than 3 years old you may have received a letter like the picture in the slideshow above. This may have come as a shock to those who had thought they were all set and ready for the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare to take effect. Sadly these newer plans are non-compliant with the ACA and you will be forced to apply for a new plan that will be available after October 1st 2013. In most cases these newer plans are estimated to be 50-75% higher than what your premium was previously.
