Local Health Insurance Agent Not Surprised Some Oregonians Are Losing Their Health Care Plans

Thousands are getting cancellation notices for their policies, mainly becuase their previous plans don't meet the new minimum requirements.

 

Local health insurance expert Patrick O'Keefe says he's not surprised some plans are going away.

 

"I'm surprised that it's surprising to people.  When changes like this happen, individual plans that don't meet the requirements will go away.  All other individual plans that don't meet the requirements are going to go away.  It's kind of an obvious thing, when you set up attributes and none of the current plans meet that attribute, it's obvious that these plans are going to go away."

 

It is estimated that 150-thousand Oreognians enrolled in individual health care plans will see their plans cancelled.
