Study questions Obamacare impact on canceled plans
Millions of the plans that were canceled because they did not meet Affordable Care Act requirements probably would have been canceled anyway — by the policyholders, a new study suggests. Last fall, as cancellation letters arrived in mailboxes around the country, opponents of the law cited them as evidence that President Barack Obama had lied to Americans when he promised, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it." But most individuals who lost plans probably would not have continued them even without the law, according to the study, which was published online Wednesday in Health Affairs.
