NJ College Students Lose Low Cost Coverage Thanks To ObamaCare Regs
by DAN RIEHL 1 Nov 2013
Along with documenting the many technical failures of Obama’s so called signature website Healthcare.gov, this CBS New York item reports the Obama sticker shock many Garden State college students now face thanks to the increasingly misleadingly named Affordable Care Act.
New Jersey built up a relatively extensive network of junior colleges in the 1970’s and 80’s. Now, ObamaCare is forcing them to drop cost effective insurance programs they had previously provided to students.
Many students have found themselves in health care limbo this semester. Community colleges in New Jersey used to offer cheap health insurance for hundreds of dollars a year but they had to drop the practice because Federal Law prohibits the sale of bare bones policies.
Under the Affordable Care Act it would have cost more to run the program and the cost would have been passed on to students.
Chalk this up as one more of a growing number of reports demonstrating that Barack Obama’s now infamous promise of being able to keep your health insurance if you liked it was a flat-out lie.
It was a health care shocker for college students in New Jersey who found out that they can’t buy low-cost health insurance at their schools because of the Affordable Care Act.
