Thanks Obama for Nasty Increases in Healthcare Premiums
Vanity | 10/2/2013 | Self

Posted on 10/02/2013 1:42:01 PM PDT by sr4402

Thanks to Obama and the Democrats (read Socialists) my cancer insurance is up 340% and the older I get, it will go up each year (was a fixed amount for everyone regardless of age before).

My families healthcare premium went up 37%, but that's not the worst of it.

Rather than having co-payments, now I have a deductible of $1901 before I see a dime of benefits.

Thanks Obama for screwing my family over. We will let your, so called, Democratic Party (IE Socialist) exactly how we feel at the ballot box and every blog we know.

First question - Did you contact your Senators and Congressman?

I wouldn’t know how much insurance for my family would cost under Obamacare. I spent 45 minutes this morning on the WA state website and it never produced a number. I put in data similar to my family of five and it returned rates for three incorrect types of beneficiaries, crashed twice, and finally told me it couldn’t give me rates and I needed to call.

They’d rather you die and ease the “burden on the system”.
This is their way of doing it.

Isn’t there a website somewhere that chronicles similar stories from other citizens? Simply outrageous what has occurred with this scam.

I just checked on the Obamarama site and my premium here in California will be almost the same, to the penny. So no change.

However in the last two years my premium went up 65-70%.

Will Sheehan: “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 would 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.”

The Original Boston Tea Party had the slogan: “NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION !”

Back then in the 1700’s the Colonists did not like Tyranny, and eventually went to War to rid themselves of it.

Today, low-information people, and their “Mainstream” Media’s attitude is: “Tyranny? Is that like “bad” or something?”

High-information people realize that we have had Tyranny imposed on us by our own NINE SUPREMES when they told us that ANY Administration can force us to buy anything they want us to buy as long as it is called a MANDATORY TAX.

The Obama Administration then decreed that the IRS would gather our personal medical information, administer and collect this MANDATORY TAX from us, and or punish us as they saw fit: WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL REVIEW.

A simple annual, or quarterly increase in the Insurance Premium is all that is needed to increase taxation by the Obama Administration that is not subject to the Constitutional “Advice and Consent” of the United States Congress.

To this point in time, the Obama Administration has been successful in depriving us of Representation in Congress while imposing a mandatory insurance tax on us.

The Obama Administration may call it “Forced Marketing,” but I call it TRYANY !

MANDATORY PURCHASE OF OBAMACARE MEDICAL INSURANCE IS “TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION !”

Don’t you feel much better knowing that somewhere in Los Angeles, a family of illegals will be better taken care of now with your money?

And that the Democrats will prance around and preen themselves on what wonderful people they are that they took your money (which of course your family didn’t need, right?) and gave it to the poor, desrving victims of their choice?

I’d tell you to find a television reporter to vent your story on but we all know that outside of one network, the rest of them will ignore you

If “OBAMACARE SUBSIDY HEALTH INSURANCE TAX,” aka OSHIT, is so popular, then why isn’t Mr. Michelle Obama enrolled?

This is enrollment day number TWO, Barry: tick-tock - - -

My current Medicare Advantage plan was listed in the Medicare and You 2014 booklet.

Today, I got a letter from the Insurance company. It said that my plan would not longer be available for 2014.

So much for ‘keeping your existing plan’.

After going through the Medicare website and the booklet, and knowing that my doctor’s clinic will not accept plans from a couple of companies, I am down to about 2 choices — one with an included drug plan and one with out the drug plan, so a separate drug plan would have to be purchased.

==

Ironically, last year (2012 for 2013) I got a letter from Medicare. It stated that my current insurance was not rated and I should enroll in Plan X. Plan X happened to be from AARP. Soon thereafter, I got a letter from my insurance company stating that they were fully approved to provide their plans.

I thought it curious that Medicare was basically endorsing and almost demanding I change to the AARP plan.

Who says there isn’t collusion with these things?

Don’t know yet. I just got notice yesterday that as of Jan. 1, 2014, my current Blue Cross plan (which I have had for decades) will no longer be available.

I’m going to try some local insurance companies before trying the government site.

I feel extremely uncomfortable divulging personal health information that I am sure will not be secure.

Make sure you call your elected representatives and complain - esp. if they are Democrats.

That’s because AARP got Medicare Advantage eliminated in exchange for their support for the ACA. That will allow AARP’s Medicare supplement plan to have less competition.

However in the last two years my premium went up 65-70%.

I guarantee that was because of Soetorocare. My premiums more than doubled since the "Affordable Care Act" was passed, forcing me to switch to a cheaper plan. I'll find out soon what 2014 has in store for me.

“I guarantee that was because of Soetorocare”

I agree wholeheartedly. The smart carriers were looking to hike as soon as they saw this monstrosity on the horizon. In California we have a committee that has to approve rate hikes. Their technique is to say we saved you 26% on a rate hike because it was supposed to go up 100% but we only approved 76%( their math not mine).

Karl Rove was on with Greta last night and said a lot of the rates people are getting are WRONG. Some people lucked out with their employers this yr. with the delayed mandate for employers but in one yr. they will be dumped into exchanges:

“”That’s because AARP got Medicare Advantage eliminated in exchange for their support for the ACA. That will allow AARP’s Medicare supplement plan to have less competition””

Medicare Advantage has not been eliminated. AARP endorsed obamacare because it put them in the cat bird’s seat to sell more supplemental plans. I would do anything to avoid supporting AARP.

Medicare Advantage plans are still available however it will take some time searching for them and determining if they are going to be written in our individual states.

We received notice from our current Medicare Advantage carrier that the plan we’ve had will not be available for 2014 but I see the same company has comparable coverage in our state so it may not cause as much heartburn as at first glance. Have fingers crossed.
