That isn’t true.
If anyone wants to see some estimated premiums in the California Exchange, you can fill in income and family details here:
It give you the estimated monthly silver plan premium.
I don’t line in CA but it turned out this calculator gave some pretty good estimates for my own state, whose calculator came out a bit later.
Looks like my premium will quadruple.
Oh, the irony of that website you linked. It says, on the side, that if a family of 3 has an income of $26,000 or less per year, they are eligible to sign up for Medi-Cal. Medi-Cal is the same program I grew up with—which has covered the poor in CA for as long as I can remember.
This idea that we needed some sort of massive federal government program to make sure everyone gets coverage has always been a lie. There have been programs to cover the most poor all along.
I buy insurance for my son. It started out at $160/mo (kind of expensive). Thanks to Obamacare, it has gone up to $233/mo (even more expensive). All I want is a policy that will cover emergencies... policies that cover everything just increase the cost of medical care.
