Now, this couldn’t possibly happen with ObamaCare, right? RIGHT?
Thousands of consumers are gaming Massachusetts’ 2006 health insurance law by buying insurance when they need to cover pricey medical care, such as fertility treatments and knee surgery, and then swiftly dropping coverage, a practice that insurance executives say is driving up costs for other people and small businesses.
The typical monthly premium for these short-term members was $400, but their average claims exceeded $2,200 per month. The previous year, the company’s data show it had even more high-spending, short-term members. Over those two years, the figures suggest the price tag ran into the millions.
This is exactly one of the things we have been complaining about regarding the Dems health plans. A taste of things to come if elected Republicans get squishy and fail to repeal and replace.
