Premiums

Sorry, You Can’t Find Out The Cost Of ObamaCare Until After the 2014 Mid-Term Elections

The Obamacare website is hiding 2015 premium increases until November 15th. Because if you know what it’ll cost, you won’t vote to re-elect Democrats. Those planning to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchange will soon find out how much rates have increased – after the Nov. 4 election. Enrollment on the Healthcare.gov website begins Nov. 15, or 11 days after the midterm vote, and critics who worry about rising premium hikes in 2015 say that’s no coincidence. Last year’s inaugural enrollment period on the health-care exchange began Oct. 1. “This is more than just a glitch,” said Tim Phillips, […]

Just as Predicted, Insurance Premiums Continue to Skyrocket-Because of ObamaCare

ObamaCare was supposed to decrease heath insurance premiums.  In fact, we were promised a $2500 DECREASE in ObamaCare Premiums.  Instead, however, we are seeing vast INCREASES in premiums.  I guess, just like the “If you like your plan” lie, and just like the “If you like your doctor” lie, the “premiums are going to go down” claim is every bit the lie as the first two.  Wyblog has more… Now, in a Superfecta of Obamacare #fail, if you were expecting to save $2,500 per year, well, the joke’s on you. Do you remember when Barack Obama told you the average […]

Meet Emilie Lamb, Victim of ObamaCare

ObamaCare has millions of “faces.”  Those that had their hours cut at work, making it more difficult to make ends meet.  Also, we cannot forget the people that have lost their jobs entirely.  And, too, we cannot forget the millions that had a plan, or doctor, that they liked.  Of course, they now have lost one, or both.  In other words, the casualties of ObamaCare are piling up. Here is one of those faces.  Her name is Emilie Lamb.  She has Lupus, an autoimmune disease that requires regular medical care.  Emilie Lamb, 39, is a middle-class woman who suffers from […]

ObamaCare Coverage vs. Walmart Coverage: Whose is Cheaper and Offers More Coverage?

Just as a hint, Walmart wins!  Well, yes, I gave it away; in a side by side comparison with far more expensive ObamaCare coverage, the Examiner found that the Walmart Coverage was a far better deal.  Here are some excerpts… Independent insurance agents affiliated with the National Association of Health Underwriters and health policy experts compared the two at the request of the Examiner. Walmart furnished employee benefit information to the Examiner. Neither Obamacare advocate Families USA nor the United Food and Commercial Workers, which backs anti-Walmart campaigns, responded to Examiner requests for comment. Walmart offers its employees two standard […]

ObamaCare Requires Nutritional Information on Vending Machines?

ObamaCare, beyond increasing health insurance premiums, causing people to lose hours at work, causing millions of people to lose their plans, and causing thousands of jobs, also apparently forces vending machines to display nutritional information.  Wyblog has more… Obamacare requires you to read a nutrition label before buying chips from a vending machine Because nagging the crap out of you makes you healthier. And it makes do-gooder bureaucrats happy. Office workers in search of snacks will be counting calories along with their change under new labeling regulations for vending machines included in President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul law. Requiring […]

ObamaCare Damage: Single Mom Thanks Obama for Cheap Insurance, Then Gets the ObamaCare Bill

In another, “thanks ObamaCare” moment, a woman promised a $169 a month premium thought she hit the jackpot, until the actual bill came in.  Then, she got the actual bill, and it turned out to be $621 a month, and she cannot afford that.  Here is more… Well, Washington State Wire reports that one of these folks has turned up — Jessica Sanford of Federal Way, Wash., a freelance court reporter. She isn’t just any enrollee. As it happens, President Obama once mentioned her by name. She was so thrilled at getting a “gold” level insurance plan for herself and her […]

Obama Touted Woman Who Thanked Him for $169 a Month Insurance, Then She Found Out it Really Cost $621!

If you recall, not only did Obama openly lie about you being able to keep your plan, but many of the few people that were able to sign up for ObamaCare were given false information regarding their premiums.  In other words, ObamaCare lied!  I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  Conservative Intel has the scoop on one woman who was the victim of this lie. Well, Washington State Wire reports that one of these folks has turned up — Jessica Sanford of Federal Way, Wash., a freelance court reporter. She isn’t just any enrollee. As it happens, President […]

“My Cancellation’ Site Shows How ObamaCare has Hurt People

The site is named, My Cancellation, and it is an open forum for people to submit their cancellation stories, letters, and pics.  Here is a sampling… The Democrats may lie about it, but there is no escaping it-not only are people losing their plans, what they are offered under ObamaCare is far more expensive. Just to recap… 1.  “If you like your plan you can keep it.”  LIE! 2.  Premiums are going to come down by $2500 a year.  LIE! And, as always, if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  You were warned, but you chose to listen […]

#ObamaCare Damage: College Students Priced Out of Market

Last November, college students voted for Barak Obama in overwhelming numbers.  Now, they are being repaid for that loyalty- in the form of losing their insurance.  Wyblog has more of the irony… Low information Obama voters shocked to discover they can’t buy low-cost health insurance College students in New Jersey voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. And now they’re shocked to discover that his signature legislative achievement hits them where it hurts, in the pocketbook. It was a health care shocker for college students in New Jersey who found out that they can’t buy low-cost health insurance at their schools because […]

#ObamaCare Damage: 100,000 to Lose Insurance in NY; 800,000 on NJ Impacted

I bet there are a bunch of Obama voters out there wondering what happened with #ObamaCare.  They’re getting cancellation notices for the plans that Obama told them they could keep.  Not only that, most are being told that they can get another plan, with a higher deductible, and a far higher premium.  Of course, they could have read here, for years, about what was going to happen, but they watched the MSM instead.  So, now they are going to pay for their vote.  Jammie Wearing Fool has more… You voted for him, so now you must be punished. If you […]

#ObamaCare Lies: Now, Millions Will Lose Their Employer Based Coverage as Well

We’ve been covering that nearly 16,000,000 Americans will be losing their insurance due to #ObamaCare.   This is in the individual market, where individuals go to purchase plans for themselves and their family members.   I’ll be quoting an article by Avik Roy at Forbes.  I strongly recommend you read the whole thing.  Here is the reaction of Jay Carney to those losses… On Tuesday, White House spokesman Jay Carney attempted to minimize the disruption issue, arguing that it only affected people who buy insurance on their own. “That’s the universe we’re talking about, 5 percent of the population,” said Carney. […]

ObamaCare Damage: NBC Airs Report That Shows Small Business Owner’s Plan Goes up 400%, Mandates Maternity Coverage for His 59 year-old Wife

Those pesky 59 year-old wives, you never know what they are going to do.  At least according to ObamaCare, they needed maternity coverage.  That, and they REQUIRE maternity coverage.  Welcome to the world of ObamaCare! As NBC news shows, a small businessman is getting hosed by the law… The gentlemen is only one of millions of Americans that can not only lose their plan, but will now pay many times more, for coverage that they neither want nor need. By the way, I would be remiss if I did not inform you that if you voted for Obama, you voted […]

ObamaCare Damage: Are People Being Given Lowball Quotes?

If this claim is correct, not only does the ObamaCare website fail to enroll you, gives false information to insurance companies, and is a open air market for identity theft, it also gives you lowball numbers as to what your premiums will be.  The Conservative Intelligence Briefing has more… h/t Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. As a former customer of eHealthInsurance.com, I can tell you that that website never gave me a “teaser” rate that was half what I ended up paying. In fact, I got a plan (for about $80 per month, with a $2,800 deductible) that went down […]

ObamaCare Damage: BC/BS Cancels Most Alabama Residents ObamaCare Compliant Plans Cost Twice as Much

Remember when the President promised that insurance premiums would drastically decrease when ObamaCare kicked in? OK, here’s yet another example of how that was a blatant lie. And for those that used to get insurance from their plan, you’re hours might have been reduced, adding insult to injury.  That, and you are mandated to buy an overpriced plan, or pay a fine. Isn’t one-size-fits-all government grand? And, this is where I remind everyone that if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  We told you this would happen.  You were warned. Elections have consequences.  

Elections Have Consequences: 77% of all Jobs Created in 2013 are Part Time Due to ObamaCare

For several years now, people have raised the warning that ObamaCare would prompt employers to hire part time workers instead of full time.  The reason is simple-if you have too many full time staff, you either have to buy them insurance, or pay a fine.  Then, with insurance premiums skyrocketing due to the extra costs inflicted by ObamaCare, providing health insurance is completely out of the reach of many small businesses.  Also, even paying the fines are prohibitive. As I’ve covered before, many businesses have cut hours for workers because the cumulative fines would be more than their yearly profit.  […]

ObamaCare Rate Hikes Coming: The Young will Suffer Accordingly

We told you that ObamaCare would increase insurance rates.  But no one wanted to listen.  However, soon the low information crowd won’t have a choice.   The Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein notes that Rhode Island has given its first hints about new Obamacare insurance premiums. Everyone’s rates will go up significantly compared to inflation. But as expected, the heaviest burdens fall on everyone except large, self-insuring employers, which have long been required to cover pre-existing conditions after a waiting period. Phil writes: For small employers and individuals, rates will now be over $300 per month. But read the fine print, and […]

ObamaCare Damage: Ohio Rates to Rise 88%!

It’s ObamaCare Damage time yet again!  You were warned.  We told you that if people re-elected Obama, that people would be paying more for their health insurance.  Frankly, it was not due to any special insights or skills, unless you consider grasp of the obvious to be superhuman.  So, armed with nothing more than math and common sense, we were able to predict the increases in health insurance premiums.  Doug Ross has the latest example… It’s another success story for central planning! Avik Roy explains: …on Thursday, the Ohio Department of Insurance announced that, based on the rates submitted by […]

Elections have Consequences: Health Insurance Premiums to Hit $20,000?

A reliable axiom would be that government intervention makes thing far more expensive.  Cars, gasoline, and pretty much anything that the government controls or regulates become more expensive.  And with the re-election of Barak Obama, a lot of democrat voters just priced themselves out of the health insurance market.  CNS News has why… Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS. The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the […]
