Healthcare Gov - No Longer Worth the Stress and Increased Blood Pressure
I enrolled for 2015, and while my doctor didn't accept my insurer, I was at least able to get my prescriptions at a discount because of the policy (it wasn't doctor-specific).For 2016, that insurer was no longer available to me and so the nightmare began.
After completing the application, I began receiving notices from the "Marketplace" that I needed to provide documents regarding my income, as it was different from the previous year,. Not an unreasonable request because my income had decreased due to my retirement. Once I completed my tax return for 2015, I uploaded a copy to the website. I figured all was well.
Nope. I received another notice identical to the last. I called them to verify they had received the document uploaded, and guess what? They CAN'T see any documents you upload.
They told me so. I was advised to send my SS 1099 and/or W2 by mail, which I did, and guess what? Yesterday I received a 'FINAL NOTICE'. I immediately went to the website and cancelled my insurance, then went to the insurer's website and informed them of my cancellation.
The *** with it.
I'll pay the fine, and enroll in Medicare at the end of this year anyway.I don't have the patience for incompetence in my life, regardless of the form it takes.
