Sharon Wilson, an office manager in Iowa, figured she would lock in a good deal on health care coverage for her five-person biofuels company by renewing its policy before Obamacare kicked in for 2014. But she balked when her agent came back with a 81 percent rate hike, anyway.
Her company, Prairie City-based Midwest Renewable Biofuels, had experienced rate hikes during her career, Ms. Wilson said, but not like this. Plus, the previous jumps were accompanied by explanations for why premiums were rising.
This time, she was left guessing about her insurer and the role of President Obama’s signature health care law.
so are these premiums per year or ??? I had GEICO auto insurance for a year and the rate was low for the first year but the second year they quoted 6 month premiums but conveniently neglected to SAY it in clear and plain English terms. I switched and saved... so are these yearly or 6 months or ???
Premiums here Rebecca, are per MONTH. Our insurance co (BCBS) sent a notice about termination and then obozo said they HAD to allow people to keep their plans (so I thought GREAT!) Oh yea we can keep it all right......it has almost DOUBLED! From $800 a month to $1400! We CAN NOT afford that. So I'm looking for a new plan......I just applied for a plan that will cost $823 per month and has high copays, plus does not cover ANYTHING until you meet the deductible....which we will never do. It's like dumping money straight down the toilet. Well- checks are covered...you know preventive care. Ha. So remember when they kept crying about "no one will go broke in the event of catastrophic illness or injury?" ANOTHER BIG FAT LIE! We wouldn't have before, but you can certainly bet if that happens now WE WILL BE SCREWED! This has been a NIGHTMARE!
Definetly agree Oren. How can the GOP be so BLIND?!?! They will fight amongst themselves and screw up this golden opportunity to reclaim the Senate and perhaps the WH. I pray NOT. WE DON'T EAT OUR OWN!
FOLKS, you Ain't seen nothing ,yet! There's one big question everyone should be asking their selves, " What over sight would stop Obama from rising premiums any time and for as much as he wants?" Correct answer "NOTHING!"
It is this simple: OBAMACARE IS CONSTRUCTED TO TOTALLY DESTROY AMERICA AND TO TURN AMERICA INTO A ONE PARTY "COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP!"
It's not only the small insure carriers that have had to raise their rates to cover their (ass)ets ALL carriers have INCREASED rates across the nation.
I challenge Obama and the democrats to show me ONE insurance company who has LOWERED their rates since Obamacare was passed . . . . without anybody knowing what was in it. Just ask Nancy Pelosi.
Come the fall of 2014 all private policies will be canceled and everyone will be under the Obama government. Let's get rid of him before that with impeachment, indictment or whatever!
Welcome to Obama's world!
Socialism is Great until you run out of our wealth. Then the TAKERS have nothing to take. The TAKERS being those they ( THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD SOCIALIST DEM. PARTY and their Leader OBAMA ) have told deserve to take your wealth with out having to work for it.
ANYONE SURPRISED ?????? THIS IS ALL PART OF OBAMA'S "TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA" ( FROM A FORMERLY WEALTHY/HEALTHY COUNTRY INTO A 3RD.WORLD, IMPOVERISHED SEWER !!!!!!!...THIS ALSO REFLECTS OBAMA'S DREAM OF "REDISTRIBUTION OF THE WEALTH" ....FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS AND THE RICH , TO THE POOR !!!!!!...ALL DESIGNED TO EVENTUALLY BANKRUPT THE COUNTRY AND CRASH THE ECONOMY !!!!!!!
More scam and deceptive tricks thanks to Ocare. Big collusion between health insurance companies and Othugs. The system is in chaos and it's only going to get worse. United HealthCare was taken to court and found in violation of their physician contracts after they dropped thousands of Medicare doctors from their rosters illegally. But, hey, what's breaking the law when Criminal-in-Chief is at the top. We must keep exposing the frauds responsible. (Does anyone in the gangsta government take responsibility?) They belong in jail!
