New Hampshire Health Plan sent all of us CANCELLATION letters saying that our policies will be AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED
as of Dec. 31, 2013 because of Obamacare.

You know the story. Remember Obama LIED.

I did, of course, do a POST on it because I do get my insurance from them


As soon as I saw damn Obama’s lips flapping last week about how he was going to permit Insurance companies to extend cancelled policies for another year, Obamacare be damned, I immediately felt a very sharp pain in my physically virgin derrière. I knew I was going to get SHAFTED.

I was right. I had told Deanna that this would happen.

Earlier this week I heard the dreaded new on NHPR.

Yesterday, I called them up.

They were so giddy with happiness that they could hardly talk.

They are going to automatically debit our bank accounts for the January 2014 premium IRRESPECTIVE of the cancellation notices they send US!

If you don’t want to be automatically renewed YOU have to tell so in writing — because as far as they are concerned damn Obama, with his flapping lips, nullified their cancellation letter.

I am sure that legally they are on a sticky wicket BUT I don’t have the money to pay a DOUBLE premium in January and also fight these F***ers.

Yes, I have already written my letter.

So you have been warned.

Thanks are unnecessary. I am here to serve.

The Health-Care Exchanges go live next week, October 1, 2013. I am kind of dreading it since I have already seen how the online applications are failing!

Today various media outlets start publishing projected premium rates. Of course I was interested in what they would be for New Hampshire.

The Wall Street Journal published, above, the LOWEST monthly premiums for a single 27-year old who wants to buy health insurance in one of the 36 states where the health-care exchange is run by the Federal Government.

The $186 premium in NH puts us at #24 out of the 36. So in terms of cost we are higher end of the list.

The average premium costs across all 36 states is $170 a month. So we are above that. But the Federal Tax Credit discounts don’t appear to be mentioned. These, which can be directly applied to the monthly premiums, WILL bring the cost down.

Lets wait and see. I am hoping that it will be good news.

New Hampshire Health Plan covered self-employed folks like me with pre-existing conditions.

Though they never really paid for anything, partly because I have a $10,000 deductible (and also because they have a pathological aversion to paying), I, in theory, through them had catastrophic coverage — and I needed that because doctors love to tell me that I am a catastrophe just waiting to happen.

Now they are going. Their rationale makes sense. As of January 1, 2014, thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), other insurance companies cannot deny coverage because of pre-existing conditions. BUT, they can still charge you an arm, a leg and a testicle.

This is NOT good news.

Newsweek Magazine Goes ALL DIGITAL As Of December 31, 2012. So That Will Be The Last Tangible Copy.

Just wanted to give you a heads up, in case you had not heard. Newsweek will be ALL digital as of 2013. I am bummed. Not sure what I will do when I have to sit around in Doctor’s Offices. Newsweek has always been my first preference in waiting rooms. Yes, over the last 25 years I have subscribed to it off and on, sometimes for quite lengthy periods at a time. We had stopped a few years ago because of ‘information’, and in particular ‘magazine’, overload. Right now I am 6 months behind on ‘National Geographic‘. I have them stashed away, in their clear plastic wrapping, waiting till a slot opens up when I will have the time to read them.

Deanna on a daily basis gets amazing online offers for merchandize — mainly because she is signed up with the right people and does all the jumping through hoops stuff they require. In October she got what I think was a ‘free for 1 year’ subscription offer directly from Newsweek. Since she knows that I like NW she signed up (to go with the other 5 or 6 free subscriptions we get — National Geographic and Reader’s Digest being the only two subscriptions that, I think, we pay for).

Newsweek, over the last couple of years, has been on a diet. It is now skinny and skimpy and doesn’t cover news in anything like the depth it used to. It is trying to be more like an abridged National Geographic with long feature articles. But, it is still fun to flip through, those thees days I can read all of what I want in an issue in one 10 minute sitting. This said, we were a bit put out when we got this huge card attached a recent issue saying that all print issues will cease as of December 31, 2012. Yes, our subscription will continue online — and Deanna already set it up. But, it is not the same. Yes, of course I spend 8 – 16 hours a day on my computer and do a ton of reading — but I do not read books or magazines on my PC or the Google Nexus 7s we have in the house. I like to read real books and real magazines. So, to me, this is the end of Newsweek. I will miss it, sometimes. Just wanted to make sure that you did not get blindsided.

Much as happened to Newsweek of late. I did not hear about this but they were bought by ‘The Daily Beast‘! They are now a subsidiary or ‘The Beast’. Yikes. Who would have thought. Another print institution bites the dust.
