United Healthcare going up $1,680.00 per year for Delta employees. This is just husband & wife. Families going up $3,800.00. That is increase not the cost.

We need to start a movement that makes congress adhere to the same healthcare we are stuck with.
You know the ones who said "We have to pass it so we can find out what's in it"

“...a health exchange that takes effect in January for about 100,000 workers nationwide, including...those of Sears and Darden Restaurants, whose larger chains include Red Lobster and Olive Garden...”

I’m confused. I thought Darden was one of the companies that was going to be cutting back hours so they could avoid the mandates?

that and dumping full time to part time, eliminating the need for health care...0’care in action, no health care and a part time job or two or three, cause they will all be minimum wage jobs.

Welcome to the OBAMA DEPRESSION, which will eclipse HOOVERS.

Since I closed my Family Farm Business on 11/1/11, my yearly Geisinger Co Health Services cost has jumped from (group plan) $3,000yr w/ $500 deductible to (individual carry-over group) $5,350yr w/ $2,500 decuctible, for same coverage.

If I didn’t have that group extended carry-over plan available, it’d be twice that cost, as new individual payer for like coverage.

Of my previous 28 employees, ~90% had spouse coverage, or took higher deduct to lower different option plan costs, and the rest of us took advantage of group carry-over option.

I’m bracing for 2013’s increase, though Geisinger hasn’t notified us yet.

My health care premiums just jumped almost $1700 a year.

I now pay about $8400/yr for health insurance for my family for a plan WITH a $1000 deductible. I work for a small business now, so the pool is small and the costs high.

Oh - and that’s just the cost TO ME. The company pays a bigger chunk of the cost.

I have a friend who has worked for years in a top management position with one of the largest defense contractors in the US. The day after the election everyone was notified that there would be changes in their insurance coverage. Basically, they will be given individual, bare bones insurance coverage. No more coverage paid for by the employer for the family. To compensate for the loss of family benefits the employee/employer will have the option to contribute to a Health Savings Account that can be used to buy insurance for the family or additional coverage for the employee. Also gone will be the life insurance benefits. The bottom line will be the employee can take it or look for a new job. My friend is in his 50’s and what choice does he have at this point in his career?

Obamacare is going to have a huge impact on middle class America and they believed everything they were told by Obama.

I work for a very small company and they already pay $100,000 a year for about 18 employees that are on their insurance and we still have to pay our premium with no copay but my deductible just for myself is $6,000 before anything is covered by insurance . That’s insane.

With higher premiums and skyrocketing deductibles - who will be able to go to the doctor now?

This insurance scheme will result in those who previously went to their doctors to not go to the doctor unless under dire circumstances.

Free HealthCare Comes with a Price Tag? So how can it be free?

Just wondering if the extra cost that is being paid is to cover those whom do not have to pay for their healthcare. keep in mind the elderly and disabled do pay for their healthcare premiums per month for Medicare. the supplemental is to be paid for by the same. Not it is the free loaders whom get title 19 Medicaid whom get he free health care. many of whom are single mothers with children who also get Section 8 housing, food stamps and whatever else they get.

Hey I have clients that get everything and they drive around in wait for it - a brand new car. Yes a brand new car. Damn I work my backside off, push myself in a wheelchair and guess what my car is 11 years old. I sometimes hate that I have to accept Medicaid in counseling but I have to eat too and I cannot discriminate. It is sad the amount of people being deemed disabled because of mental health problems - stupidity is not a mental health problem. Depression as a severe mental health problem is joke
