Anecdotal evidence ... mine ...
Monthly premiums for private insurance went from $576 to $776 to $1130 in 15 months. I guess I should be grateful, however, as a friend of mine 5 years younger than I now pays $1250 a month for his.

I will be eligible for Medicare in 18 months, if I live that long. I wonder if I will be one of the first ones to be denied care.

Ours went from $668/mon to $1439 over a similar time period, all due to extra stuff Omaba care made them add to our high dectucible policy ($10,000 deductible).

That's $17, 268 dollars a year !! I can't really afford it anymore, though now I get to have pregnancy coverage ( past the age, I'm afraid), early drug/alcohol intervention treatment (mr rb and I neither drink, nor smoke), and a whole host of other coverages we neither want, nor can afford.

We have been served.
