My health plan was canceled

Many Americans with individual health insurance policies are getting termination notices. But not all are unhappy to go onto the Obamacare exchange.

Wanted to keep his health plan

My current policy for major medical with HealthNet is $132 a month. I'm very happy with a catastrophic plan being that my health is good. I absolutely had been hoping to keep my plan.

I discovered my plan was canceled. In the letter, they gave me various different options, none of which was even close to the same price.

I went to Covered California and reviewed policy options there. I make too much money to get a subsidy that's going to help me pay for this. Everything was more than double. They are pushing all of these bronze plans that are outrageously expensive. A bronze plan was $325 a month. I've never spent near $325 a month.

I am hoping other options become available. I'm going to go with the most cost-effective policy I can get. I would love to be able to continue a catastrophic plan that doesn't cover any doctors' visits or pharmacy visits. It's not important to me at this stage of my life.
