Thousands of Georgians are getting notices that their health insurance policies are being terminated because they’re not compliant with the Affordable Care Act.
The cancellation notices have created an uproar in political circles and in households across the country. Some people are facing higher premiums, and others say they had been led to believe that that their policies could not be canceled under the ACA without their consent.
But many Georgia consumers have an option if they are unhappy about losing their current policy: They can renew it before Jan. 1. This choice has largely gone unmentioned by the media during the outcry over cancellations.
