Anthem Blue Cross Errors with Grandfathered Discontinuation Notices

Was hoping Part I would be enough.  This may be a multi-part series šŸ˜•

California subscribers may have received a letter early in December indicating that their grandfathered Anthem health insurance plan was being cancelled 2/28/18.  Apparently some letters were sent in error and those plans are, in fact, not being cancelled.

Correction letters were supposedly sent out 12/8 to notify those subscribers of the error.  So be on the lookout if you received a cancellation letter regarding your grandfathered Anthem health plan.

As of today, the only plan I know is being cancelled is the Clear Protection 5000.  Some HIPAA plans may also be cancelled.  

Anthem is not releasing any information to agents about which plans are being discontinued nor which clients are affected.  Nice šŸ™„

If you have received a cancellation notice and not the subsequent "we goofed" letter, please comment on which plan you are on.  Maybe we can figure out the super secret list of plans.

Kaiser Foundation Interactive Subsidy Map (TrumpCare vs. ObamaCare)

An interactive subsidy map provided by Kaiser Foundation allows you to see the impact of tax credit subsidy (2020) versus income-based subsidy (current).  Sorted by county in all 50 states.  Those above 400% federal poverty level would do much better, those below, depends on county and income.  Most below 200% would do much worse.  

Subsidies under ACA are based primarily on income.  Tax Credits would be based primarily on age.
