Pro-ACA Families USA Holds Another Obamacare Conference Call
A new report by Families USA finds less than one percent of the non-elderly U.S. population is at risk of losing its current insurance plan and paying more for coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
Families USA has been a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act and has worked to counter negative public opinion during the botched rollout that had President Obama apologizing earlier this month. The organization's executive director, Ron Pollack, says the ACA prevents insurers from selling substandard plans.
According to Pollack, just a tiny portion of the non-elderly population, point 6 percent, is at risk of losing its current individual health insurance market plan and not becoming income-eligible for financial help.
Congressman Chris Gibson, a Republican of the Hudson Valley, pointed out in a recent Congressional Corner segment on WAMC that there are many issues involving Obamacare that have not been addressed, including one involving military families.
Ron Pollack says like it or not, Obamacare is here to stay. The Families USA report, “How Does the Affordable Care Act Affect People Who Buy Health Insurance in the Individual Market?” is available at http://www.familiesusa.org/ACA-individual-market/
