She might want to check with what this Democratic Underground poster had to say:
What I've learned about the Affordable Care Act
What I've learned after a three-month war with these fiends: the ACA says the insurance companies cannot deny coverage to those with pre-existing conditions, which is true as far as it goes. But they can deny coverage for the life-saving medications necessary to treat those conditions. The insurance company I signed up with through the ACA exchange just denied coverage of my wife's multiple sclerosis medication. We're "covered," to the tune of $700 a month...just not for what she really needs.
A cozy loophole, that.
Fuck you, insurance industry.
F*** you, Mr. President, you piece of shit used-car salesman.
From my heart and soul, f*** you.
Mr. Pitt takes a beating and comes back with this zinger:

25. Thanks for kicking my thread.
My post #8 above:
There are ten different health insurance companies in NH. According to the independent (family friend, ally) insurance adjuster I spoke to at length this afternoon, pursuing coverage with any of them would be a waste of time. Why? Because - according to dude - the whole "You cannot deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions" thing only applies to insurance companies within the ACA network. You heard all that shit about "Grandfathering." Well, this is that, and all of them will turn us down because they still can.
I am in the process of running down the facts of the matter, but family friend and ally was confident enough to basically tell us not to bother.
So yeah, that, too.
Explain it away, apologist. My wife is counting pills.
Yet another Dem sees the light!
