A case of lost health insurance coverage
I lost my Blue Shield health care insurance even before our local congressman, Devin Nunes, voted on May 3 to begin dismantling what we briefly knew as Obamacare.
For two years, my wife and I had been paying an affordable monthly premium that provided us with minimum coverage (a bronze plan).
Then, this April we got a letter from Blue Shield notifying us that our monthly premium had been doubled, retroactive to January 2017.
Diagnosed with a pre-existing condition, a terminal illness and on a fixed income, I had no choice but to cancel my health insurance policy.
I was the first to go; then there is my wife. Will she have health insurance next month?
