Most Obamacare customers will face serious premium hikes next year unless they change their health insurance again, according to a Thursday study from Avalere Health.

Miss Piggy Pelosi talked about this. This must be the part where ObamaCare becomes “very popular”. LOL!

It’ll be “wildly popular” amongst those who actually are getting it for free at our expense,

and as for the rest of you, you just don’t know any better.

In bait and switch, the “bait” is usually a whole lot more appealing than the ObamaCare starter. I don’t want to see the “switch” version of ObamaCare!

Here’s a shocker, if you weren’t already shocked:

My insurance company, BCBS of Florida, sent me a letter because we are behind in premium payments. We have 90 days to catch up. The letter contained this grand little tidbit:

If your policy is cancelled you will have to PAY BACK all the subsidies you received (actually THEY received) from the government on your insurance.

IOW, you will have to pay the government subsidies back to the government.

My insurance was provided by my employer up until January. Since then, they give us a ‘stipend’ to pay for our own insurance policy, equal to the premium with the subsidy subtracted.
They have since fallen behind in giving us our stipend because of business falling off.
We are two months behind..................So We may not only lose our insurance, we will be in debt to the government as well.....................

With a government following the Constitution, we would have an economic environment where COMPETITION would determine prices and markets...the degree to which insurance companies are crooked is only to the degree with which the federal bureaucracy works with them hand in hand.

Any corruption in the industry that existed before the Clown signed Death Panels into existence has grown exponentially BECAUSE of the new regime. Yes, they’re getting bailed out BECAUSE OF THE LAW.

Some in the industry realize they’ll eventually be targeted for destruction, so they’re jockeying to be the last ones standing...and it is all because of the fascists running the executive branch.

I don’t even understand how YOU are responsible for the subsidies... you didn’t receive the benefit, nor the payment.

I can see if you were supposed to pay the full price and had been receiving reimbursement, but this is “feckless”ed up.

So We may not only lose our insurance, we will be in debt to the government as well

Sounds like a revival of the "company store" to keep the peasants under control.

It keeps getting worse.

“Sounds like a revival of the “company store” to keep the peasants under control.”

True; I’ve hiked in areas along the NY/NJ border where little iron mining villages used to exist. As the mines started closing, workers fled with their families with the clothes on their backs. No assets at all; they had been fed enough to keep them working, and slowly sunk into debt to the company.

The Dems told us Republicans would return us to that state, then proceeded to try it themselves. While there may be a growing gap between the 1% and the rest of us, the gap between the middle and lower class is disappearing. The future is equally bleak for both...

Sounds like a real mess. Did you contact the exchange? That is the first thing you are suppose to do when your income changes.

I understand it only if subsidies had been paid out already for future months (for after the policy was cancelled). Then whoever received the subsidies should pay them back, of course.

A wise person will learn first aid, natural cures for diseases and symptoms, eat well, stay healthy and not plan that they'll be able to get medical care when they need it. It's impossible to get consistant medical care from someone who knows your medical history in these conditions.

My neighbor's foot hurt very badly. She had to see her primary care physician (two weeks) and then get permission to see a podiatrist (three weeks). She had a broken foot!

The good news is it was almost healed before she found out that it was broken!
