Californians Could Get Free Health Insurance............

If by "free" you mean paid for by somebody else.

We live in CA and ur 2018 Monthly Health Insurance Premium just went up to $2090 for two Adults in their early 60’s.

That does include Dental and Vision Coverage ($120) so I guess we’re getting a great deal after all.

It actually shocked me that it only went up $100 from what we are paying right now.

Can anyone here define the word “free”? Just askin’...

This applies to all states, not just California.

The difference is that the insurance company subsidies wasn’t authorized by law and was an unconstitutional executive action by Obama.

The individual subsidy based on price is authorized by law.

People are quick to excoriate those who get the subsidies. I don't like it. I want to pay for what I get. But I feel I've been forced into it.

I work - far more than 40 hours a week - and so don't qualify for Medi-Cal. My only other private insurance option is PPOs i.e. Blue Cross/Blue Shield, which starts at $600/month (with a huge $6K-plus deductible) which is completely unaffordable. Yet I am forced by law to buy insurance, which in my case is the subsidized Obamacare, also with a huge $6K deductible.

I get that the government and the insurance companies have colluded to jack insurance rates out of control because they have altered the free market to make medical care artificially expensive. Understood.

I am forced by law to buy insurance, yet the only affordable insurance option is Obamacare. By design. So consider this before you condemn we the subsidized.
