If Obama doesn't like your plan, he will pick a new one for you
Heres a Friday Obamacare news-dump for you: In a 300-page regulatory proposal released late this afternoon, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it is considering changing Obamacares auto-renewal rules so that, within the health laws exchanges, instead of being automatically renewed into your current health plan, youd be moved into the lowest cost plan from the same service tier. . . . Its not just auto-reenrollment. Its auto-reassignment. Basically, if you like your plan, but dont go out of your way to intentionally re-enroll, the kind and wise folks at HHS or state health exchanges might just pick a new planperhaps with different doctors, clinics, cost structures, and benefit optionsfor you. And if you want to switch back? Good luck once open enrollment is closed. Theres always next year. A hassle? Maybe. But have faith: They know whats best.
