To the Editor:
My Blue Cross Blue Shield policy is scheduled to be canceled next summer because of Obamacare. We were promised that this would not happen. I have a very good policy with a low deductible. I have no pre-existing illnesses, but I want to have a choice in my medical providers, as I have always enjoyed. That is important to me as a former health care provider myself.
I do not qualify for a subsidy and was quoted a new premium that is close to 100 percent more than what I pay now (from $501 a month to just under $1,000 a month) for an individual policy. And to add insult to injury, from a $250 deductible to a $6,000 deductible. This is squeezing the middle class.
