With Optima Health’s decision to cease providing ACA insurance, Shenandoah, Winchester, and Frederick Counties will no longer have any insurers who provide insurance in accordance with federal law. Optima recently stated they will only serve areas which are in the Sentara hospital network.
This is another blow to the good people of the Northern part of the Valley, who had been told by Barack Obama and Mark Warner (and by Ralph Northam also) that their insurance payments would go down and that passage of the Affordable Care Act would not affect their coverage. Now with Optima pulling out of the region, will our brilliant friends on the radical left ever admit that Obama Care was an abject failure, and the best way to lower health care premiums is to foster competition, allow for insurance to be sold across state lines, implement some tort reform, and to get government the hell out of our doctor patient relationship? Odds are they won’t.
Well remember the one thing about liberals, they never learn from their mistakes.
I wonder what Ralph Northam has to say about the good people of Strasburg and New Market and Middletown losing their health care. Oh wait that’s right, he only cares about those who live in the big city.
