Starting in October I started getting letters and ‘packets’ from my current health insurance provider, Anthem, saying that I could be — and would be — automatically re-enrolled in the same plan as I now have IF I opt not to login to (bloody) healtcare.gov and chose another plan.
I thought they were joking. I was sure that it would not be that easy.
Last week I got another letter, from Anthem, stating what my revised new premium would be, as of January 2016, IF I stayed on the current plan and opted to re-enroll.
It was still up 19%.
But I am going to take it. I really can’t stomach the aggravation of dealing, yet again, with healthcare.gov.
As I found out this year, to my COST, it doesn’t really matter what you do on healthcare.gov. The day of reckoning is when you do your Federal taxes! So why bother. Just pay what you have to pay and then be PREPARED to pay MORE as a tax penalty in April. So screw it. I am NOT going to bother messing around with healtcare.gov. That alone would be good for my health.
So a heads up. Public Service Announcement. IF you have health insurance this year, i.e., 2015, you can keep that for 2016 — most likely with a higher premium — without bothering with healthcare.gov.
