I was waiting for my health insurance renewal and it came; boy is it big!
This is the largest increase since I have been as a self insured individual(10 years)and I'm so frustrated.
The new health care and AFFORDABILITY bill is a joke...
whats so affordable about it?
I did try to get another quote for my state and was told because of my past health issues there wasn't any other...what?
is that legal?why are states approving these large increases?
with more people being required to buy you would think that the rates would lower or at least stabilize...
I put this under personal finance category because the insurance is the biggest expense for me and millions of others..
its what i call "bankruptcy insurance",not health insurance.
ok I'm through venting, for now..
The new health insurance law is nothing but mandated profits for the private profit health insurers.
Well, it gave me more money to spend each month. At least until I need care of any kind; the huge price increase (up 80+% this year) caused the company I work for to cancel all employee insurance (for which I paid 20% of the cost) so I'm up about $150 per month.
It looks good in the check until I need a doctor or hospital...
My health insurance costs have stabilized under the Massachusetts program. It runs about $1,000/month per person, but can't be canceled if I get sick and it's really good and comprehensive. There are cheaper programs that start at about $475 a month/per person. I have at least six plans to choose from.
Consider yourself lucky that you still are able to qualify for personal health insurance. Some states have only one provider for individual programs and they won't cover most people over 50 or anyone whose ever had a medical problem.
Most states could care less about the individual health plan. Hey the private sector and market are best right?

Obama indicated in his promissory speeches that he would improve America? However, he has done nothing of the kind, in fact, he has made America much worse since his takeover in the White House. Do you think that America has become worse under President Obama? The main crux of Obama's...

I thought this article was interesting, especially since it appeared in the NYT. According to this guru, costs will INCREASE, not decrease. This is the same guru that democrats hailed as wonderful when he challenged Bush. Don't worry, though, costs will increase by only a few billion, and what's a...

One of the first things conservatives want to do is repeal the ACA individual mandate designed to get healthy people into the insurance exchanges. Without them, premium costs WILL skyrocket ... meaning "if you think the 2017 rate hike was bad, you have seen nothing yet". As...

This is an unscientific poll.I am curious to know the answers to four very simple questions:1. Do you have health insurance now?2. Who pays the premium (main monthly cost) of your health insurance?e.g., employer, government program, you, other3. If you didn't have insurance through a group...

Is personal freedom encroachment if you obliged people to get health insurance?What is the difference between health needs with other basic needs like housing and education etc. For example, there are laws that obliged parents to educate their children to avoid truancy and the state has the right...
