As exchange after exchange have gone belly up.

As premiums rise faster for less coverage / benefits.

You're losing on all fronts.

On every issue.

It must be very disheartening in the world you inhabit.

The cost of healthcare will be 5.8 percent per year according the CMS. The cost of healthcare insurance will be cost prohibitive and the poor who are forced to buy it cannot use it because of the out of pocket expense.

And the one you inhabit.

The choice for healthcare insurance in Western Colorado just went from four providers to one, and the remaining provider announced a 26.8 percent increase in premiums.

Quote:
Premium increases were determined after each provider reviewed what they paid out in health claims to doctors, hospitals and other providers this year in order to set appropriate premiums for next year that would allow them to pay claims and remain in business.

“In general, the companies have indicated that the people enrolled in individual plans have used more healthcare services and with greater frequency than anticipated,” Marguerite Salazar, Colorado insurance commissioner, explained. “While the DOI will evaluate information provided by the companies to determine if their requested premium increases are correct, all of us in the industry must tackle the more pressing question of what is driving the increased health costs in the individual market that lead to higher premiums.”

The last medical care I sought was 30 years ago for a broken finger that I paid for with my money. In the hospital the woman doctor demanded to stick her finger up my ass and I felt raped when I only wanted my pinky set.

In the real world Exchanges are folding, Insurance Companies are pulling out of the program and they are losing MILLIONS of dollars each year. The risk corridors have returned no more than 12% of the promised reimbursements. Premium increases are once again in the double digits.

We already had a good laugh at that a few days ago when skews posted the same BS.

As I said then:

As premiums rise faster for less coverage / benefits.

Thanks ōbama.

Thanks from Jimmyb, kbear and coke
