Once upon a time, in a land just like ours, people could leave their job and secure temporary health insurance…only there were a few medical questions, pregnancy wasn’t covered and there was absolutely no coverage for any pre existing medical conditions. The purpose of the plans, however, was to cover the unexpected, the catastrophic and the unintended. It still is, but now that the Trump Administration has allowed relatively unfettered access to such plans, carriers are balking, consumers are walking and Trump keeps talking about how he has created new markets, opportunities and a bonanza for all…well, actually, the same people that wanted and needed it in the first place, under the same terms and conditions as before.
They have opened up the market to what we already had and now everyone’s complaining
