Care to DU a Christie poll??? This poll doesn't need much help but it's fun anyway!


on edit....and don't forget to read the excellent article that goes with it!

The deadline to enroll for health insurance on the Exchange has been extended.

You still must sign up on the www.healthcare.com site by the 31st but you have until April 15th to choose your insurance and sign up.


The truth about Obama Care's high deductibles!!!

For the past few weeks I have been reading reports about the high deductibles on health insurance policies from the Exchange. On Foxnews they have been featuring people claiming that they aren't even covered for a doctor's visit until they meet their $6,000 deductible.

This is a great big lie.

Since January I have had 2 general practitioner visits, four visits to specialists, a sonogram, a full set of blood tests, a podiatrist visit, a mammography, and a needle biopsy. On top of that my prescription medication for January thru March retail at over $1,000.
The cost to me has been a total for doctor's visits of $100 ($10 for generals, $20 for specialists) and the costs of my medications for 3 month was $120. That's a total of $220 and more than half of that gets applied to my Deductible.

I was expecting the worst so when BCBSNJ started sending those notices about how much they paid and how much I owed, I was shocked to see I didn't owe anything. Because I always think the worst I called to ask why and they explained that the amount that I paid for my meds were applied to the deductible and so was the 20% that I paid for things like an ambulance.

So...don't be frightened of your new insurance. It is a lot better than you may think.

Does anyone know how to stop DU from automatically charging my credit card account???

This is on edit:
I just received an email from Skinner and everything is taken care of. Thanks for all advise and attention.

I still intend to pay for my membership but NOT on auto-pay I have tried the various forums and I have emailed Skinner and every other address I could find. Apparently I am not the only one who can't get a response. I NEVER knowingly agree to auto pay ANYTHING and I'm pretty upset about not getting an answer about this.
All I can do is keep posting for help until I get an answer. There should never be a problem with this kind of thing on any site for any reason.
