BCBS Highmark here in PA....

38% increase for our HDHP Plan premiums this year.

And suddenly, smoking cessation products are no longer allowable expenses with the HSA Debit Cards. You wanna starve the beast via patches or nicotene gum (which wrecks your fillings, btw), you get to pay for it on your own dime.

Some dimwit has finally figured out they DO need smokers to subsidize their taxation drama....

It’s a feature not a bug.

Already hit at our home.

Our insurance provider sent us a letter that said - very clearly - that much of the increase they are adding has to do with now 40% of their new applicants have pre-exisiting conditions who now must be accepted and therefore higher medical costs to all.

Obamacare is a house of cards planned to drive buyers of insurance into “lower cost” nationalized coverage.

Obama "promised that his health reform plan would “bring down premiums by $2,500 for the typical family” by the end of his first term."

The BIG LIE that has largely gone under the radar is that the reason health care costs have gone through the roof over the last forty plus years is precisely due to government insinuation into what was prior to that a respectable private industry. It’s classic Hegelian Dialectic stuff. Government gets involved, screws things up, then suggests that the only solution is for (drum roll please)... more government involvement.

Going to insure 30 million more people AND force insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions at the same rate as the others...and Obamacare was going to reduce a family’s HC costs by $2,500. Only in (D)umboland...

Mine’s gone from $2900 (group) to $4200 (single payer)/yr, with ded/co-pay going from $500 to $2500. Who’d da thunk 0bummer’s a lying POS? Many of us knew back in 2007-08.

I was fooled too. My belief would be a lowered cost just like the military Tri-Care. This is government subsidized health insurance but the max premium for a family was $480 (now raised to $560) per year.

I got beat up on some forums so I just downloaded the entire bill and read it for myself. I stumbled unto free Republic as a result.

That is a problem Dems have with passing O care.

Dems will claim that these rates would have went up anyway even WORSE without the “The affordable Health Care Act” , so it still made it cheaper than it would have been (great trick HUH??)

But lets say thats partially true, let ssay that they were going to go up anyway which they would have (how much we will never know).... it doesnt matter now, Dems own the new higher rates .

Did you read the comments at the Forbes site (if your pages will load through all that script—ugh)?

Most of the commenters are koolaid drinking liberals who are blaming the “greedy insurance companies” for the rate increases, and hoping for their demise and the institution of single-payer healthcare.

Heaven help us.

At the end of 2012, Mark Bertolini, the CEO of Aetna, the third-largest health insurer in the country, warned that many consumers would face “premium rate shock” with the advent of Obamacare’s major insurance regulations in 2014. He predicted that unsubsidized premiums would rise 20 to 50 percent, on average.

You don't have to wonder why the big health insurance companies -- including United Healthcare's marketing arm, AARP -- were big supporters of ObamaCare. For a crony fascist, what's not to like about a 20-50% revenue increase, with every American forced to buy your product.

I’m fortunate that my total premiums are very low, because I have good insurance with my company, although partly that is because the first few thousand is deductable (then they give us many incentives to do things that add money to a fund that can be used to pay the deductables, like a HSA but part of the insurance).

Still, my premiums for the medical part of my benefits went up a whopping 40%.

And I am limited to $2500 in my medical savings account, which I haven’t figured out if that will be a problem or not, because this will be the first year I put that much into the account.

Military health care gutting, I know it’s from a libtard site but it helps to keep a eye on the enemy.
