Administration continue to deny the damages resulting from the ACA (obamacare). My cost for healthcare has gone up 400% and my neighbor just informed me his went up 500% and now requires a $12,000 deductible out-of-pocket cost. Prior to obamacare, my insurance was $5,400 and my neighbors was $5,700 yearly. Now, mine is $21,600 and my neighbors is $28,500. We both have a $12,000 deductible and now our medicines are not covered. So, our out of pocket costs actually will exceed our insurance premiums. Do you have a similar circumstance?

good to hear. but I would not count on the same position next year..
Well, 1,231 companies have been given a waiver & won't have to deal with it until next year. Is your co. one? One would ask one's employer what they plan on doing next year and how Obamacare might affect your insurance if it proceeds as planned.
my employer already has made the change because they did not receive a waiver. and now I must purchase my own policy. it is very expensive to get the same coverage that I had last year.
I checked the exchange and because of my income, I cannot get assistance. It appears that I am paying for your reduction.
Well if that is true Dremer I'd suggest you contact the press - they are only reporting horror stories by liars according to Reid and Carney although I haven't seen anyone on the news claiming what you do.
My wife and I both work and pay taxes, so if anything, we're paying for our own reduction. And there are other stories like mine, but the media doesn't focus on them as much because they don't have that sensational quality that revs people up.
Sorry M.T. Dremer, but your story just does not add up. According to the investigators, Obamacare has increased all insurance costs when taking into account the deductibles for the new basic care options. And 30 million are still uninsured.
You can disbelieve my story all you want, it doesn't mean you're right. Most of the people who complain about rate hikes are the same people who refuse to sign up on healthcare.gov. And the uninsured are choosing to pay the penalty.
What penalty? Didn't you hear? All you have to do is sign a hardship form, no proof of hardship required& you are exempt from the mandate for two years. Dems shut down the gvmnt because they wouldn't let republicans waive the mandate,now they hav
M.T.Dremer - Thanks for suggesting that I continue to search. I now have free insurance due to the latest exemption created by the President. So, you and others are now paying for my insurance with your tax dollars. And, I can bank my $20 grand.
Congress shut down the government because a few tea-party extremists had the republicans by the balls. They knew that if Obamacare reached the public, people would start to like it and their years of propaganda would be for nothing.
tb, really you should limit comments to people from this planet...don't you think?
M.T.Dremer-you obviously seek false entity. One that is currently being challenged by the righteous who see the truth. Obamacare is recognized as a failure since it has expanded the uninsured. The TEA Party knows the truth-you should seek it too.
So your point is insurance companies are to blame for the law that the Democrats passed with no support from Republicans or the majotiy of the public? The law they promised would reduce your premiums and allow you to keep your plan and doctor? LlIES
The states used to regulate - now Obamacare regulates (failure-care) and the cost is dependent upon the new taxation clauses placed upon the medical practitioners and insurance companies. No one can figure out a law being managed by tyrant rule
