  • Her Health Plan Was Canceled, New Options Are Double the Cost (VIDEO)

    An Illinois woman, Betsy Tadder, is one of the 1.5 million (and counting) Americans whose insurance plan was canceled because of Obamacare.

    Right now, she pays $454 a month for a health insurance plan she likes. But once she’s officially loses her coverage, she’s offered options that are “unaffordable,” she told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”

    Under the new policy, the cheapest option costs at least $871 a month, and includes benefits she doesn’t need, like pediatric dentistry and maternity coverage.

    Now Tadder is trying to figure out what’s next. She said she thinks her family will be without health insurance by the end of this year.

    Watch her full interview below.
