The reality of the train wreck will not hit until people personally suffer via rape-rate premiums, high deductibles, no maximum-out-of-pocket limits, and reductions in network options.
One example of how devastating a reduction in network options can be: Kaiser, insuring more than 500,000 people in the D.C. area, dumps the five most important hospitals in Northern Virginia.
Thus far, people learn that others are being slammed and sigh with relief: "Well, it's not happening to me. I don't have that particular policy."
