Obama Care Part II

So we had the debate if Obama Care would work and if it was good for the country. Well now its here and starting to go into effect I thought it would be a good time for part two. I'd like to here people experiences good or bad with how its affecting their coverage and premiums. Also any news about Obama Care.

Remember Obama said you could keep your plan? Well he lied.

Obama administration knew millions could not keep their health insurance - Investigations

Re: Obama Care Part II

I have a couple of friends who love the ACA. They got health insurance which was comparable to what they had before but MUCH cheaper.

That said, the web site problems are a fiasco.

Re: Obama Care Part II

My premiums are going up in January but that was part of our CBA well before the ACA even went through congress. Some of my coworkers are quick to put the blame on Obama as oppossed to municipalities cutting costs.

Re: Obama Care Part II

To be fair any increases prior to Jan. 1, 2014 would not be on Obama Care. I've been told my current plan will go up 20 to 25% which will be about a $250 increase. I'm looking at a new plain to purchase in december so I buy myself another yr before ACA hits my pocket.

Well I guess the entire media is not reporting us the truth when they say that thousands will be loosing the plans Obama said they could keep. You act like I'm making this up. When a person says that everyone can keep their plans they have when they know that's not true its a lie.

I guess your policy has renewed and stayed the same?

So you don't really know if the premium is cheaper or we the tax payers are paying a portion of the premium?

I know that my friends are paying cheaper premiums and that is what affordable health care is all about. That's all I know.

Re: Obama Care Part II

To be honest I am okay if my premiums go up. I think everyone should have access to health care and if it means I have to pay a little more so be it. I am also a big advocate for user pay for our society. I should pay more for the roads I use, the parks I go to etc.

Not sure how you can say that both of your policies are staying the same unless you have received your 2014 renewal.

I'm with you. I won't receive Obamacare since I get health insurance through my job. Nonetheless, Medicaid withholdings from my paycheck have increased to pay for it all. And I'm good with that. If some poor person now can get health care, it's worth it.
