Posted on 10/02/2013 7:02:45 AM PDT by tobyhill
That amount $328 per month is the national average for the mid-tier silver premium based on HHS calculations for approved plans in 48 states. The challenge, of course, is that like all of healthcare itself, your mileage will vary.
Both individual and family insurance rates will vary dramatically based on a host of variables. Those variables age, marital status, geographic location and income will each have a significant impact on the final monthly amount.
The most difficult single component in the equation is income which determines the amount of Federal subsidy any given taxpayer will receive toward the purchase of coverage on the individual state run public exchanges.

Good Luck stupid Libs!
Yeah what’s up with failing to mention deductibles???
Is that per person? If it is than a family of four would be over $1,300. per month plus co-pay and deductibles.
"I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 "Silver Plan" and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I "opt-out" and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the "REPERCUSSIONS PORTION" for "non-payment" of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with "Non-Payment" and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy "Automatically withdraw" your "penalties" weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is "Free" or even "Affordable.""
Whaddayaknow, health insurance is expensive.
Yup. More than my mortgage.
The way I heard, you have to register for obamacare before you see what plans are available.
Talk about a scam...
What happens when someone moves to another state, particularly moving from TX, a low-cost state, to IN, a high-cost state? Does the government get to pocket another premium?
Who thinks the same bunch that can’t keep track of military equipment and State Dept. computers can keep track of millions of health care policies? You have be be insane.
The deductible argument is a trap - because the only way, as in the ONLY way - to drive down medical costs is to have what the old “major medical” policies did, which was to cover only the big ticket item. The “insurance” was not expensive, because processing co pays and such is what makes a 50 dollar scrip cost 175 anyway, with a 20 or 50 dollar copay or whatever.
HHS has said that they would probably NOT allow private high deductible plans to remain. Here the libs may have swerved into a good idea, but of course, they won’t be smart enough to figure it out.
It’s.. It’s.. not free?
Ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat.
That is a very good account of the impact for all to read.
“Federal Subsidy” no, we should start calling this “taxpayer funded subsidy”
’ $13,988 yearly deductible’
This is horrendous!
So very sorry that the feral government now has all your information and can threaten you and track you down until you submit. This shameful oppression of innocent citizens will lead to a massive lack of trust among those who had no idea this would happen.
More than almost ANY policy I have experience with.
What a boondoggle! Wait till people find out they will have to pay over three hundred per member of the family. They are going to poop! Insurance is supposed to protect your assets in the event of a catastrophic illness, not cause you to lose your assets just to pay for your premiums.
Good job Obama!
Yes, it’s one person. A family of 4 making $50,000 a year will be eligible for about a 40% subsidy, making their monthly premium around $780 a month.
Do you have a link? (I don’t do Facebook)
Are you ready to pick up a gun and fight them now?
