Triple Digit ObamaCare Premium Increase

Arizona Obamacare Plan To Jump By 116 Percent When Premiums Go Up Next Year

newyork.cbslocal.com/2016/10/25/arizona-obamacare-premiums/

Arizona to get 116% increase in ObamaCare premium increase.


#2

The UNaffordable care Act


#3

From the article: "But HHS said if that hypothetical consumer has a fairly modest income, making $25,000 a year, the subsidies would cover $280 of the new premium, "

Translation “The other working residents of the state will be forced to contribute $280 towards the young persons premiums”…

Weren’t the young people supposed to be subsidizing the higher needs of the older Americans?

You’ll have a chance to voice your concern November 8th.

My brother is disabled and is on Obama care. He was paying less than twenty dollars a month. For next year, he will pay 167.00 a month, and he has no income.


#5

I wonder, will people just start going without and pay the fine if necessary?


#6

Would this also directly or indirectly affected Employer healthcare plans? My company offered premiums have gone up this year and continue to do so.


#7

Why isn’t he on SDI and Medicare?


#8

Does he meet the eligibility requirement to apply for Medicaid and/ or social security disability? If he hasn’t applied it would be definitely worth it albeit the process is frustrating and time consuming.


#9

Id love to know who in the Democratic party or the media thought right now , days before a major election, was a good time to release this kind of news? LOL

Are they trying to help Trump win?


#10

Boy I sure hope so! Donald has been all over this.This is a big deal.Hit people where it hurts,their pocketbooks,lie to them in the process…not good. He needs to keep playing the tape of Obama promising you can keep your doctor,keep your plan,families will save on average2500K per year…then mention how HC will finish what Obama has started!:mad:


#11

If someone is disabled, not on SSDI, SSI, Medicare, or Medicaid and is unemployed and relies on an individual insurance policy, they probably wouldn’t have been able to get insurance before Obamacare because of pre-existing conditions.


#12

Since the new plans start January 1st, the rates have to be released now so people can start shopping for plans. If they release them later, people won’t have time to make a decision.


#13

At what point will an Obamacare supporter EVER reconsider their support for this monstrous law???


#14

Obamacare obviously needs to be improved. But Republicans offer only one solution which is total repeal and that would take us back to where we were before with millions of people being without any insurance at all and insurance companies denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.


#15

Single payer here we come…

:thumbsup:


#16

VA healthcare for all!

Now instead of accelerating the deaths of just those who’ve served out country, we’ll offer the same high-quality death rattle for you, too!


#17

Or how about Medicare for all? What’s wrong with Medicare which is single payer system for people over 65 which has been quite successful and is generally fairly popular. Why not just expand Medicare to everyone of all ages?


#18

True or at least a public option in the meantime.


#19

Are you aware that Medicare is fiscally insolvent already? It costs ten times as much as the politicians told us it would when it was passed. Do you really think we can pay for 18% of the GDP with a 2.9% tax on earned income with a 3.8% on higher incomes(above $200k for singles and $259k for married couples)?


#20

This will loose the election for Hillary.
