Does anyone know of any insurance policy that can be bought for a NJ resident that also covers Dr's in NYC?


A family member just got a letter that as of 2016 they no longer cover NY Dr's.

This is kinda urgent.... TIA

I would recommend calling a broker who deals with both marketplace and regular plans. I think Cosmos advertised that in Lakewood. Bikur Cholim and the like may be able to help with that as well. If there is a business to put the plan under it should make it easier.

These plans are absolutely awful. I'd never purchase them in the pre Obamacare days.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

And why exactly is this Obama's fault ?

Premiums have always been going up. Forever. They were constantly going up far higher. They were going up almost 50% pre Obamacare. In fact Obama care has managed to try to keep a lid on those raises.

Obamacare might not be the best we got, but it surly is contributing to keeping healthcare costs down.

You're crazy. My non-Obamacare premiums go up way more per year post Obamacare than they used to and they say outright it's because of all the new things and people that they're forced to cover.

Speak to professional bookeepers that do payroll.
Preniums have always gone up.
It's nice and cute to blame Obama, but it's always been this way.

The annual percentage increases are much higher now.
My own experience is confirmed by dozens of articles saying the same thing.

Nothing to do with cute, forcing insurers to cover more people, older kids, and more treatments with no lifetime max has a real cost.

That's all private, never mind the insurers bailing out of Obamacare due to losses.

This statement sounds absurd. Whether it's good or bad for society, and whether anyone gains from it, is debatable, but saying that it's keeping healthcare and insurance costs down isn't.

It's true that b4 Obama care the premiums were going up every year also (at least for healthy NY) but the coverage was much better. And at best he has just kept the status quo which would is a complete waste of millions if not billions of tax dollars and political time and energy setting this up and accomplishing nothing

Exactly.
Plenty to blame Obama for, not on healthcare though. On this issue he's stuck his neck out to help and do good. So Despite all you hear, the criticism  might not all be warranted.

And what's with all the ppl that can afford coverage now.

BTW the NY Essential Plan is real benefit from Obama!

I can only know about NY and here there was already healthy NY which was cheaper and better coverage. What's the essential plan? The catastrophic plan?
