BCBST leaders launch educational campaign about increasing health care premiums

Leaders with BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee have launched a campaign to educate members whose insurance premiums will be impacted by the Affordable Care Act.

"We feel like we have the responsibility to do that," Roy Vaughn, vice president of corporate communication with BCBST, said. "We don't think they should have to piece information together to try to get the whole picture. We try to present them with a complete look at the impacts."

So they have launched a website—KnowTheCostTN.com—to help residents sort out the facts.

There are three groups that will be impacted: individual members, small employer groups and large employer groups.

Leaders noted that these are averages, so it doesn't mean that every member in these groups will have that much of an increase.

The majority of members, who are either small or large employer members, will see an increase of between 3 and 10 percent.

Members insured through large employers will be affected the least and will see an average of a 3 to 5 percent increase, officials said.

And small employer group members will see an average of a 10 percent increase.

In other words - Everybody who works for a living, all retirees.

Excluded, the "gimme" crowd.

"Individual members could see an average of a 30 percent increase..."

Documentation File on the harmful impact of the Counterculture of Obamanation on America.

___________________

Barry Soetoro, aka B. Hussein Obama, 5 days before the end of GWB’s Presidential term, told ‘The Gullible’ the following: “We are five days away from FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!”

Going on 5 years now, the best friends that Obama could have had to help him achieve his above stated dastardly goal were the RINO leaderships in the US House and Senate, AND THEY ARE STILL IN POWER!

_____________________

IMHO, the Counterculture of Obamanation will continue to destroy America for as long as the US Congressional RINOs allow it to, and not one minute more!

Every policy holders should take the $2500 savings promised by Obama, divide it by 12, (2500/12=208), subtract $208 from their monthly premium, mail the remainder in with a note explaining that they deducted the promised “Obama dividend”.

If the insurance company has a complaint... take it up with Obama.
