Skip to comments.Three Obamacare Premium Calculators Show Wild Variations
Posted on 09/26/2013 5:34:49 AM PDT by MrChips
I have found three different calculators online to try to get a handle on just what my premiums would be under Obamacare. I am part of that demographic which has received such not-so-unintentional neglect by the Media: those 45 to 65 who do not have group insurance and who NEED health insurance. Of course, it's not like I can afford even the lowest of these estimates. I can't. But, here are the projected 70/30 "Silver Plan" premiums I have found for myself (calculators in parentheses): (1) $500/month (Kaiser Family Foundations); (2) $588 (GoHealth); (3)$700 (UC/Berkeley). I guess nobody really knows. So, why bother? And, again, I can't afford any of them. But, it is interesting that there is such a wild swing from one calculator to another.
They don't care about the kids ... THEY'RE stupid .. and were born with a celphone in their hand ... they're connected and have no clue.
WE, on the other hand, have worked to be independent and free and we've probably been careful about what information we volunteer.
Apparently it's not good enough ... they want our souls and if they have to kill us legally with health care to get it ... they will.
Sounds a little Satanic .. eh ?
Yeah it does. But, I wear a St. Christorpher’s and have a crucifix over my bed, so I’m safe.
My Kaiser alone is $900 per month. Like you I can’t afford even this at the bronze level? Plus the deductibles too...
If most people are lucky, they will be able to afford the dirt level or the dung level. Good luck everyone.
Go back and recheck your entries.
ANNUAL, the calculators are giving the ANNUAL premium, not monthly.
My previous post is wrong. Under Kaiser my ANNUAL premium is nearly $900 the subsidy is $3273.
What I don’t understand is this statement at the website about the unsubsidized portion? If I run that number through my calculator it is about $400 per month vs the annual premium of $894 or about $75 per month.
Criminal it is that most of us dont have any idea what next years premiums will be.Not a clue.Will it go up 100,200,300.I dont know and as a long life planner that PISSES me off because it is going up ,alot and I don’t have it
No. My figures ARE monthly. My annual premiums range from between $6,011 to $9,000.
Well, with each of my estimates, I took my figures for 2014 and added 3% per year for each of the next five years to get a rough idea of what I would be spending over that 6 year period. It is mind-boggling! I could build a small house for the same sum.
P.S. I don’t qualify for a subsidy. I work two jobs.
what a shock.
call the IRS with your tax question 3 times- you’ll get 3 different answers.
