Add this story of a Virginia cancer patient who is losing her health insurance to the long list of other similar tragic cases (see here for some stories
). From CBS DC:
A woman battling kidney cancer is losing her health insurance because her company’s health plan is being canceled due to Obamacare.
Debra Fishericks, who has been working for the past 10 years at Atkinson Realty in Virginia Beach, has been scouring HealthCare.gov for a plan that fits her, but is finding that current premiums and plans are out of her price range.
“They just go up high and higher when there is a pre-existing,” Fishericks told CBS News. “Will I have my same specialist? Will I have to search for other specialists? There’s so many unanswered questions.”
Owner Betsy Atkinson doesn’t understand why they have to lose their insurance since they were happy with it and it was affordable. . . .
Two broken promises (and a third possibly broken) in one case: she was happy with her current health insurance, the prices are going up, and she probably won't be able to keep her current doctor (she can't even tell what policies will cover her current doctor so that seems likely).
