LINK Yeah! :-)

Quote:
Thousands of Californians are discovering what Obamacare will cost them and many don't like what they see.


These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years.

Although recent criticism of the healthcare law has focused on website glitches and early enrollment snags, experts say sharp price increases for individual policies have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama's signature legislation.


If you like the policy you already have, ya can keep ... Oops. gobsmacked

Indeed! While anocdotal, my healthcare contribution has gone from $141/mo to $0. Office visits from $0 to $20. I'd have to see a doctor seven times a month to equal what I used to pay out as a monthly cost. And, if I'm going to see a doctor seven times a month - you better believe the eighth visit will be dinner and a movie. smile

My employer, just as before. Except now I have no monthly contribution because the premium went down so much. Hmm

Is your employer hiring, right now, rick? Might want to let the Californians who are getting their premiums jacked-up that there is an employer they can believe in. Only fair, I would think. :-)

I provided the link earlier today when you pointed out that I had forgotten to include it, Ardy.

Mine got bumped up to $384 a month and the deductible raised to $2,000. But, I also got a .97 cent rebate for the year because of Obamacare's new rules! I'm guessing you will be keeping your current policy, then? :-))

P.s. The commute would be too much, and the idea of leaving my current environs is, to me, a decidedly unpleasant thought. ;-)
