A new wave of failures among ObamaCare’s nonprofit health insurers is disrupting coverage for thousands of enrollees,reports The Hill.
Co-ops were set up under ObamaCare to increase competition with established insurers, but just seven of the original 23 co-ops now remain.
The Hill details:
Having to switch plans in the middle of the year is a problem because it often means that enrollees need to start over on paying their deductibles, in effect increasing the amount they pay out of pocket for care.
Another issue is that people can lose access to doctors if their new plan has a different network, a problem.
