We'll have to wait and see this November I guess.


This hasn't happened to us (yet) but if it does, we will ask our PCP about a "concierge" arrangement and/or cash payment. Not sure we'd do it but we've both been with him 20+ years and would really hate to give that history up.

I would consider that kind of arrangement with my PCP, too, but that doesn't solve the problem of having to purchase an ACA-compliant healthcare plan. Since I'm in good health and still fairly young (late 40s), it wouldn't make sense financially to pay for a concierge plan with my PCP and also pay for separate healthcare insurance.

Just got my notice yesterday. I guess I need to start thinking about next year soon.

I don't think I have ever seen a company get a 0.6 rating from it's customers and stay in business. they must be really bad.
