OBAMACARE FALLOUT: Canceled health insurance plans add to angst of change. “This whole experience has converted a lifelong Democrat into a foot soldier for the Republican Party.”

Related: Sticker shock often follows insurance cancellation. “The Griffins, who live near Philadelphia on the Delaware border, pay $770 monthly for their soon-to-be-terminated health care plan with a $2,500 deductible. The cheapest plan they found on their state insurance exchange was a so-called bronze plan charging a $1,275 monthly premium with deductibles totaling $12,700. It covers only providers in Pennsylvania, so the couple wouldn’t be able to see the doctors in Delaware whom they’ve used for more than a decade.”
