While the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act never required any review of insurance rescission due to "fraud" or paperwork errors, Obama has unilaterally narrowed the scope of external review when people feel their coverage has been unfairly dropped to only rescissions due to "medical judgment", while also drastically shortening the period during which patients may challenge their insurance companies before an external panel over this narrow scope.
So after you've spent half your life paying gigantic portions of your income to an insurance company because you followed Washington's mandated behavior like a good little citizen, when you some day have the indecency to become really sick and need that insurance you'll have maybe a 50/50 chance. That's how they make their money, after all. But I didn't know that congress gave Obama the power to unilaterally declare this or that additional way the insurers may happily fuck you for a profit.
