Even setting aside the debacle surrounding the rollout of HealthCare.gov, last fall was a bad time for the Affordable Care Act.
Millions lost their current coverage despite the president’s promise: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” Millions more found that their doctor was not part of newly defined insurance networks. On top of that, middle-class families across the country encountered sticker shock as they saw their premiums increase.
With a new year and most of the website problems more or less fixed, Affordable Care Act supporters are hoping the worst is behind them. They are in for a rude awakening.
