8. Another one who doesn't make sense of this post.

 

Lousy policy? The ACA isn't letting you have a genuinely lousy policy any more. The policies actually have to cover real medical care. As you correctly noticed, the insurance companies have been raising rates steadily. What was the great plan that you formerly had?

For what it's worth, I've heard more horror stories about Blue Cross than about any other insurance company. I know my stories, are just anecdotes, but still . . . .

Many years ago Blue Cross Blue Shield was the premier health insurance company in this country. Some fifty years ago, in 1962, when we moved from NYS to Arizona, my mother kept her BCBS plan from New York because, well because. There were five children (ages 7 to 15) and she needed to have something. I honestly have no idea what she paid, but I do recall that why my brother broke his arm that wounded up requiring surgery, the BCBS plan made a huge difference. I doubt she paid much, if anything, out of pocket. He was actually in the hospital for a week.

Anyway, now, some fifty years later, many things are very different.
