Insurance still takes estate money if you die owing money.


Did you think that through? The purpose of insurance is to cover or limit any expenses you might incur. If I have to have surgery, my BCBS will cover pretty much all of it. After I die they will not try to recover what they have paid out for that surgery. On the other hand if I have Obamacare/medicaid, the cost of that surgery will be taken from my estate. Like I said before (and is the point of the article), most people signing up for the Obamacare/medicaid option are unaware of this as it is not clearly explained.

"they could have kept their insurance"

Insurance still takes estate money if you die owing money. Really, truly don't see your point here.

This isn't news nor does it have anything to do with Obamacare.

Well, they're coming for your pensions, so why not your house, too?

Medicare and Medicaid have used estate recovery for decades. This isn't news nor does it have anything to do with Obamacare. Those programs have always been like that.
