Thanks Obama Care!!!!

Link Posted: 10/26/2010 8:45:22 AM EDT
But But But..... that's impossible, Obama said that everyone's insurance will go down. Maybe it wasn't the cost he was talking about.
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 8:46:34 AM EDT
You must have looked at it wrong.
Obamacare will lower everyones costs.

He said so.
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 8:48:03 AM EDT
Didn't they say Obama was going to give us free healthcare? Fucker ain't paid my car payment yet ethier! welsher.

That's Kenyanomics for you.

Mine's going up 19% next year.
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 8:54:00 AM EDT
Open enrollment. My cost for family of 4 have gone up 35%. Thanks shitbag that negates the 10% raise I got, busting my ass on an airplane 2 weeks a month.
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 8:57:39 AM EDT
Mine damn near tripled at the beginning of the month. Went from $30 a month to $80.

Thank god I work for a damn good company that pays 95% of our insurance premiums.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Obama said that you would not be forced to go to Obama Care. You can keep you health insurance you have now.
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 9:02:14 AM EDT
I don't have to pay premiums, but our coverage changed. Now it's sky high deductables and prescriptions. Guess I'll have to stay away from the doctor unless I'm dying.
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 9:04:35 AM EDT
This is the progress that 'progressives' love. You evil employed people need to pay more so the nice welfare parasites can get more free stuff.
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 9:07:45 AM EDT
Got the email that it was going to increase but it did not say, Guess I find out next week when the enrollment starts. It only took 4 years for my pay check to get back to the same amount it was before getting married and putting my wife on the insurance. Guess I will be back to a smaller pay check then 4 years ago again.
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 9:10:23 AM EDT
160% increase here
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 9:10:39 AM EDT
Link Posted: 10/26/2010 9:10:54 AM EDT
Yep... my healthcare costs are going up 23% next year. If this is "Hope and Change" then I want it to stop.... at this rate I can't afford it.

That will soon be taxable income.
I don't doubt it. Which will be another $1200 a month I have to pay taxes on.

I have a good blue cross plan that is paid for by my company. It is what would be categorized as a "Cadillac" plan by liberals, but is considered to be standard in my area for those still employed and has been the standard for many years. Basically, the plan provides for the medical care I need in a way that won't force me to file for bankruptcy if I go to the hospital and offers a good standard of care from my doc, albeit with lab fees and deductibles paid by me. Starting last year, the employees at my company were asked to contribute for the first time with the owner being unable to support the entire cost at a time when most of our competitors were shutting down and we were sucking serious wind ourselves.

I do not anticipate that we will still have this plan this coming benefits year because a 20-30% increase placed directly on the employees would be impossible for most of our employees to pay for. In addition to the additional taxes coming from taxation of benefits, health insurance is simply going to be too expensive to afford.

It seems like, eventually, the only option will be a public option type of plan if things keep going the way they are.

And, if you are a working white man you will probably be put in back of the line when it comes to getting healthcare treatment IMHO.

Afterall, the majority in the medical profession are rabidly left wing.

I honestly believe, that when I need healthcare the most in the upcoming years, I will be counseled to "just die gracefully".

We have a President, Attorney General and Speaker of the House who absolutely hate white men............there is absolutely no denying that fact IMHO.

No reason for me to believe that the rabidly left wing medical profession will act any differently.

So, what do you think the impact will be for your company? Will they decide to drop coverage? Go out of buisness? Lower wages?

Many doctors are conservative, especially in private practice. Nurses are another matter.

I posted a story here the other day from Yahoo/Associated Press where some big companies are, behind the scenes, seriously thinking of paying the $2,000 annual penalty and making employees fend for themselves.

None of the above. They are picking up the tab for the bulk of the increase.

That is what they should have done instead of Obamacare. Make the health insurance taxable income.

The major problem in our system is that no one pays (more than a token) at point of sevice, hence there is no price competition.

Just got on Medicare (A&B) and the tab is $223 a mo. (out of SS benefits). because of our income.

Get a reduction of $50 on my old healthcare plan (which is now supplamental and covers the wife).

Net increase $173 mo.

It must be nice that your company works on such great profit margins. But the laws of economics still apply. There is a mounting buisness case for them to change things in a way that won't be good for you, and it is even possible they will have no choice.

My premiums for 2010 are now more than my mortgage payment. What's worse is if things played out right I could still have to pay $4500 out of pocket before insurance pays a penny.

I pay no premiums, but my deductible & out-of-pocket max rose significantly. I have a high-deductible plan, company pays for the insurance, I pay deductible and 10% after that up to an out-of-pocket maximum.

It's still cheaper than the plan I was on several years ago, but I really think it's going to keep going up at a much faster rate than it has been. I won't be surprised if I have to start paying premiums in addition to the high deductible next cycle...

My raise last year paid for the increase in the premium this year. No raise this year and I just can't wait to find out how much it's going up this year.

This is with the lowest $1K deductable (two years ago it was $500) my company offers. Good thing I didn't pick the cheaper plan with the $2K deductable, because come to find out, when you get hurt every doctor gets paid your deductable first. i.e. my main dr. get's $1K from me, the specialist gets $1K from me, the x-ray people get $1K from me and the PT gets $1K from me. After a motorcycle accident (left knee & not my fault), a torn quad (soccer) and a root canal I have no hope and change left. From now on, I guess I hope I don't get hurt or sick because I can't afford to...maybe I shouldn't leave a padded room in my house.

Oh and just so you know, I work in healthcare and we don't get crap!

FU BHO
