VIDEO: Leukemia patient loses his insurance coverage because of Obamacare regulations

from ABC15 (emphasis mine):

“I’ve worked hard because I’ve had to, and I’ve had to, because cancer runs in my family,” says Cerpok, who picked his current health insurance based on that family history. His monthly premium is just about half of his monthly take-home pay.

Back in 2006, he found out he had an incurable form of leukemia that requires ongoing treatment until he dies.

In 2012, his treatment bill was more than $350,000. But because of his insurance, his out-of-pocket was only $4,500.

That’s about to change because Michael just got a letter from his insurance carrier saying as of January 1, he would be dropped from coverage because of new regulations under Obamacare. His doctor at the Mayo Clinic may be gone as well.

“Now it doesn’t mean I can’t go see my current doctor, but my $4,500 out-of-pocket, is going to turn into a minimum of $26,000 out-of-pocket to see the doctor that I’ve been seeing the last seven years,” he said.

read the rest

Remember when Obama said, “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” It was a bald faced lie. There’s nothing affordable about Obamacare. It’s actually hurting people with pre-existing conditions.

Kevin Kennon Having been to Germany I would love for us to have a 2 tier system like they have. If you told me today that we would scrap the ACA and go to a system like they have I would lead the charge for the new program.

Dara McNamara Wow Dara racist much?

It is funny how people said the same negative things about Bill Clinton but now historians have started ranking him as one of our top 15 presidents. George Bush is now rated as one of the worst at a current spot of 39th out of 44. Funny how the conservative GOP was so behind but him and he has turned out to be so bad for the county yet they guy you vilify so much is turning out to be one of our best. I wonder how much more he could do if he didn't have to deal with Tea Party BS.
Seriously why don't you reflect on that a moment and see if maybe you have been the people hindering this country all along. Check out the Dunning-Kruger effect.

Because at long last many good people are starting to realize what Obama Care is truly about, they are speaking out! Some are even threatening violence…this is maybe what this Administration has wanted from day one? …. "Civil Unrest"… Why…because any president can then declare "Martial Law" and if that happens He remains President for as long as it takes, could be years and years until He removes the Martial Law order..scary you bet . If you want to take action that can make a change use your phones to call your Senator's at 1 202 224-3121, ask for your state by name, voice your opinions clearly. Protesting in public is a Freedom but in today's whacked world maybe, just maybe that can be misconstrued

Bill Mager says:

"You can keep your plan" "you can keep your doctor"

Rodney Hodge says:

Shirley A Nanos You are parroting a LIE. Chief Justice Roberts did not say obamacare was constitutional…The SCOTUS has ONLY ruled on the INDIVIDUAL MANDATE part of the bill at present! Chief Justice Roberts said that the penalty mandate was NOT Constitutional as written and that the ONLY WAY that the federal government could enforce the penalty was to make and enforce it as a tax. This ruling is the point at which obamacare as a bill actually became unconstitutional… There are several suits in process that may well make it to the supreme court that challenge the bill based on 1) "The Originality Clause". The bill did not originate in the House of Representatives. 2) Obama changing the law without it being amended. 3) Penalty not meeting the constitutional requirements for INCOME, EXCISE, or DIRECT taxes. 4) Congress using the taxing power as a backdoor means of REGULATING AN ACTIVITY.

Crissianna Macleod says:

obamacare seems to get you information and money then it cannot connect. website down. but they have your information. what crap is going to happen next?

I would not care if the president was black and whited checked . All I want is someone who is looking out for our country and the citizens of it !!! Race has nothing to do with it . The majority , white and black , voted him in ! We need to band together and save our country before it is too late ! A lot of the problem is too many people vote without knowing the issues and the candidates !!!

Dianna Gear says:

I meant that the hospitals picked up tab for uninsured. They chg 15.00 for an aspirin to make up for caring for the uninsured. The hosp couldnt operate at a loss so they chg ins companies more. Now taxpayers are picking up tab for uninsured. What happens is the ones that have to pay cant afford to get it but the ones that cant afford it get it. Does that make sense

Dianna Gear says:

Looks like u can keep your dr but youll pay more. Its not the affordable health plan. With this healthcare citizens are picking up the tab for the uninsured. Now the taxpayers are picking it up. I thought in the plan the drs would be told how much they can charge and how much they can make. This isnt gonna work but esp this is not the time to do it because people are out of work and companies laying off and cutting to part time. They dont want to pay it. They cant afford to either. Look what the ind is paying

Vic Bennett says:

Well Shirley, when people start being denied health insurance, let them band together, get guns, rockets and mortars and do a march on Washington. NO HEALTH INSURANCE, NO WHITE HOUSE, NO SENATE HOUSE OR CONGRESS.

Anita Miller Bell Meyer: All blacks are not obama supporters and many of them are aware of what a "train wreck" obamacare is. Too many liberals though are blind to the truth of what this administration and Congress (both democrats and republicans) are doing to destroy this country by failing to impeach the idiot that lives in the White House.

Justin McInvale says:

This is so sad.

Justin McInvale says:

Shirley A Nanos, the only way Obamacare is legal is because when the law was called into question Obama switched up and called the mandatory fee you pay if you don't take Obamacare a tax.

Many racists on this one!

NWO!!! Out of chaos comes order!!!!

Anita Miller Bell Meyer says:

ALSO, Obamacare is about GOVERNMENT CONTROL, NOT HEALTHCARE!!!!

Anita Miller Bell Meyer says:

Diana Riebe Burns HE IS BEING HONEST…. if you aren't black or a liberal you think Obamacare is great…otherwise it SUCKS!!!!

Diana Riebe Burns says:

This is incredibly misleading…he's able to get insurance through the affordable care act which most likely will be cheaper than his current insurance…he is also able to keep his doctor under ACA…you just have to choose the insurance from the marketplace that your doctor is with. I'm sure he's not aware of this since he is a high school drop out, and I'm quite sure the reporter is aware of the facts, but they're more interested in a good story than an accurate one.

Diana Riebe Burns says:

Ben Casciola you are a disgusting bigot! For shame!

Kevin Kennon says:

You may be right. Not sure he wants it to fail, but definitely wants a single-payer system. I also agree that he is not smart enough to be calling the shots. His strings are being pulled by George Soros and Valerie Jarrett gives Soros' orders to Obama

if he said that he felt others might benefit from the obama care why didnt you play that part verses wording it in for him cause at this point i can not imagine him saying that knowing it is costing him thousands more i can not imagine him saying anything in favor of this crap obamacare

Gaby Tyler says:

Kara O'Brien true but you can sue the person

Shirley A Nanos says:

And of course you know who the power putting this in action all over the world is. The United Nations. Please do not doubt this. You just have to read about the UN Agenda 21 and see that it is all going quite well. But the cra p that bothers me is, The other stuff that is getting lost because of Obamacare. A police office told by a school administrator that he cannot pick up his little girl at school if he wears his uniform. Actually stupid what will they do call the cops. Making light of a serious situation. Many instances where people are told to change clothes they don't like what the T-shirt says, actually suspending students as young a 5 for making a finger gun. and much much more. We are being blind-sided by Obamacare while he is running amok taking away our freedom. He is Muslim, He is in the Brotherhood, He is golfing while everyone else is being punished right now, He is not American. If we want our country, we must take it back starting with impeaching Obama.

Dara McNamara says:

Ronnie Bilinsky – I'm no fan of pro abortion Hillary, but that is exactly why she was thrown under the bus; a women would be picked apart and criticised, whereas a black man is 'cool,' the ultimate victim made good – da Prez from da hood, yo hea wot I'm sayin… BTW, the horror stories from Hillary's PUMAs about the Denver DemRAT Convention would make your hair stand on end!

Shirley A Nanos says:

Angela Gall Bean BTW if you do not buy the highest tier, for an outrageous cost, you will still be paying 80 to 90% out of pocket. Affordable, I don't think so. For instance if you do not have the highest tier, and get breast cancer, to name just one. The chemo itself could cost $6,000 or more per dose. I think mine cost a little more, and I had to have 8 doses. At 80% you do the math.

Dara McNamara says:

Kara O'Brien the PEOPLE are sovereign.

Shirley A Nanos says:

Bill Selman Gosh people don't you read anything? The Supreme Court has already said Obamacare was ok. They read it. They know what it says. They changed it from a order to buy to a tax to make it legal. It is law. Of course it could fail because Obama has trouble thinking out the way it will work. As of right now he is not able to get it off the ground. That is the only hope Americans have right now.

Shirley A Nanos says:

Nobody would listen to the opponents of Obamacare. They did not believe that Obama would actually cause the deaths of American Citizens. We have not seen the half of this destructive "tax". This gentleman and all Americans with expensive health conditions, myself included, will be denied care based on many things. Age, cost of condition on and on and on. Please believe that health rationing will be on the agenda. You will get to face a board that could tell you you are no longer viable and all health care will be denied. They will however, make your last days less painful, as well as hasten that death for you. I read it, I believed it, I did not vote for Obama, but I am just as dead as everyone else. Now his game will get serious.

Terri Dutson says:

I would definitely take it to court. He said on national television that people could keep there drs and their preexisting conditions would not be an issue-a bold face lie I do not know why they have not defunded Obama care the whole thing is illegal. From what I have read and I may be wrong, but from what I found online, it went to the wrong place to be voted on in the first place. I am trying to remember what the article said it was written by a guy who is a expert on the constitution and bill of rights and he said it was voted on in the wrong house and that it is illegal for them to fund it. dang I wish I could remember more but apparently they shoved it into the wrong body to vote on and they can't by law fund it. if I find the article I will post it here

You got it Ronnie Bilinsky its a MASTER PLAN THAT THESE POWERFUL PEOPLE PUT TOGETHER USING HIM AS A PAWN.

Ronnie Bilinsky says:

I HAVE BELIEVED THIS FROM THE SECOND THIS SOCIALIST FRAUD CAME TO POWER….HE IS NOT THAT SMART BUT HIS GANG OF ADVISORS AND FINANCIERS ARE BEHIND THIS….HE IS A PAWN AND BEING THE FIRST BLACK PRES…HELPED IN THAT PLAN….THE SHEEP AND LIBERAL LOONS, KOOL AIDERS AND THE UNINTELLIGENT TYPES WHO LIVE OFF THE SYSTEM ADDED TO THAT CAUSE….THEY HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN THIS HEALTH PLAN WOULD FAIL…THEY DIDN'T NEED TO READ IT….THE ULTIMATE GOAL….TAKE YOUR GUNS, YOUR MONEY, YOUR HEALTHCARE AND YOUR JOB….RESULTING IN SOCIALISM….THE CHAOS OF OBAMACARE WILL BE SO DISRUPTIVE….AND THEY WILL THAN TELL US…THE ONLY WAY TO FIX IT , IS WITH GOVT CONTROL

This is so messed up.

My opinion, The President wants this Obamacare to fail. Its a plan by his mentors to put this out there and have the people get so confused and scared about healthcare that we the people will be begging our government to take over ALL HEALTHCARE and make it a ONE PAYOR system. This President is not that smart he is being lead by a powerful force to make America a SOCIALIST NATION.

Angela Gall Bean YEAH THIS WHOLE THING IS NOTHING MORE THAN EVEN MORE SOCIALISM. IT REWARDS THE LOSERS WHO SIT ON THEIR ASSES AND DO NOTHING WHILE THOSE OF US WHO WORK BUST OUR ASS TO PAY FOR THEM. THIS SYSTEM WAS DESIGNED THAT WAY. THEY WANT ALL AMERICANS ON WELFARE AND GOVT ASSISTANCE SO THEY CAN TRULY RULE OVER US. THAT'S WHY THEY DESIGNED THE SYSTEM THAT WAY. FIGURING IF PEOPLE WHO WORK SEE THAT THEY HAVE TO PAY 10 TIMES AS MUCH AS A NON WORKING PERSON, THOSE PEOPLE WILL SAY SCREW IT AND QUIT WORKING AND TAKE FROM THE GOVT TOO, THEREFORE MAKING THE GOVT THE TRUE LORD OVER US ALL.
COMMIE BASTARDS!!

Look at the 800 number for Obamacare, the last 7 digits of the number spell Fuc_ You!!

Yes definitely screwing us, we will now be paying over $600 a month for health insurance and someone without insurance only has to pay $100 a month! WTF

OBAMACARE IS SCREWING EVERYONE. ON THE FLIP SIDE, THESE CORRUPT ASS INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE DROPPING PEOPLE LIKE THAT WHO ARE COSTING THEM MONEY TO PAY OUT FOR THE PEOPLES COVERAGE. IT'S A 2 FOLD PROBLEM. OCARE SUCKS AND INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE USING IT AS AN OUT FOR THEM TO DROP PEOPLE WITH MEDICAL ISSUES THAT COST THE INSURANCE COMPANIES.

I SAY IF YOU WANT TO FIX HEALTH CARE GO AFTER THESE FUCKING CRIMINAL INSURANCE COMPANIES, THEN YOU MAY SEE HEALTH CARE GET BETTER. I'M NOT SURE WHO'S IDEA IT WAS TO DEREGULATE THEM BUT IT WAS A BAD MOVE!!!

Bob Bullock says:

Law is you can't sue a president for anything they did as president. They tried with Nixon.

Frank Robak says:

Kara O'Brien yes you can sue the federal gov't, The family of the Fort Hood victims are currently in the process of suing the administration

Prior occupations of most democrats? Lawyer. Republicans? Business or Doctors. Makes you think….

Ben Casciola says:

Not if you are a Liberal or black.

Kara O'Brien says:

You can't sue the government, they are sovereign. You can fight for saying something isn't constitutional, but you can't sue. Just FYI..

Terry Killian Thompson says:

Instead of funding politicians, maybe we should start funding a pot of money to pay lawyers to take the more extreme lawless actions of our elected "representatives" through the court system and to a hearing before the Supremes. That may make more sense because it's beginning to seem that almost all the Politicians are the same and that we have little hope in them fixing ANYTHING. Everything they do just makes things worse with the "unintended consequences".

And where is the ACLU?? Anyone with any common sense know Obamacare is one big lie…

Bill Selman says:

I hope they take up his fight and sue

Joseph F Layman says:

IF I WERE A LAWYER I WOULD SUE PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE CONGRESS PERSONNALY BECAUSE OF THEIR WORD THATHE COULD KEEP HIS DOCTOR AND COVERAGE BECAUSE OF PRECONDITIONS. THAT COULD LEAD TO THE SUPREME COURT AND MAKING IT ILLEGAL. MAYBE THE RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS AROUND WOULD USE THEIR OWN LAWYERS TO HELP THIS MAN AND IN TURN HELP THE COUNTRY.
