What has been your health care experience since the Affordable Care Act took effect?

  1. None. I am continuing to get coverage through my employer and there has been substantial change in that coverage.
  2. My coverage has been dropped or the terms of my care - physician and/or plan - has been changed significantly, the use of the website has been dicey at best and the terms of Obamacare are not what the president promised.
  3. I went on the website, selected my options and I am satisfied with what I've gotten.
  4. I attempted to get on the website and either unable to access it, dissapointed with the information about future health care on it or scared about the privacy I am giving up to enter into the Affordable Care Act.

What about the choice of my health insurance hasn't changed at all?

Exactly Wardcitizen. My employer based coverage hasn't changed at all. The S-G doesn't want that selection in their "poll".

No, it is due to the fact that the employer mandate has been delayed till 2015. You too will experience significant changes at the end of 2014 if you have employer sponsored health insurance.

However, the question is how my experience been? I am not a fortune teller, I only know how the Affordable Care Act is right now. And right now there is no change.

Nothing has changed. However, my private insurance company continues to raise my premiums and my copays. This has been happening as long as I have had health insurance. Fortunately, I'm in good health and don't need to see many health care professionals.

DeanWormer: The main reason for the "ACA" is to keep you from going "bankrupt". You will now have a "cap" on your copay which I believe is $3500 which is a lot of money but, if you have an operation for $100,000 your copay will be limited to $3500 not the 80%-20% which would mean you would have to pay at least $20,000 on your copay without the "ACA". President Obama stated that some parts of the "ACA" people won't like but, the end result will be better than you have now, you won't go broke or go into bankruptcy. The older you get the more you will need healthcare.

I have noticed on many of these comment pages that when I attempt to agree with a point that is opposite to the tone of the questions, it will not process. This poll leaves many options out especially has not changed at all. I will not answer the poll but will post no change here.
