My insurance is going up 300% this January!
How do you guys afford this?
I agree that Obamacare sucks but all this bitchin about rate increases gets me. Hubby has been paying $700 a month for many years now. No deductible just regular copay for everything. If it wasn’t for the huge deductibles for the Obamacare policies those prices would look dam good to me. Mine is $500 per month with a $150 per year deductible.
We have paid these rates for years so Obamacare rates don’t really look out of whack to me.
Obamacare still sucks! Lol
Sorry for you :( But the numbers I have written on this thread are 100% accurate. What’s going to happen in 2017 is that we’re going to see a huge market for catastrophic coverage plans from the private sector in the “smart States” that healthy people can buy that will cover them for a certain percentage over some very high deductible number (such as 20K-30K) and get them pre-deductible group rates. These same people will look for ways to legally suppress income and just pay the 2.5% “tax” while they curse the names of the politicians they blame for this mess. How will they suppress income? We are going to see more people downsizing their cost-of-living and doing more to be self-reliant & organized within their microcommunities. You can raise taxes all you want but unless someone actually has real income, spending, and accumulation of assets they won’t owe any taxes.
