What cost health care?

ACA plan deductibles vary wildly, challenging consumers.

A USA Today report finds that "Insurance plan deductibles under Obamacare vary so wildly across the country for 2015 that many consumers are left confused and, in some cases, sticker shocked." "In more than a tenth of the counties covered through healthcare.gov, the minimum deductible available for a family plan at the silver level has increased since last year sometimes as much as $5,000. In other cases, consumers are trading high deductibles for lower premiums. And in some areas, the number of insurance providers has affected deductible levels."

What's the matter if someone expects it's free for them with someone else picking up the tab?

And yet more people have health insurance, better health insurance, less expensive health insurance, than they would have had without ACA.

I go to the doctor when I feel sick. I go less often than I should because I don't like to spend money. Eventually I will get so old and sick my money won't matter any more and I'll keep going to the doctor often as long as I think there's any chance he can help me.

If you let me take all of everybody's else's money too......., general bankruptcy is inevitable.

Not really. Obamacare exchange are more expensive than policies available before Obamacare, it difference is Obamacare is a welfare program for 90% of subscribers, the increase in Medicaid is straight welfare.

About the same number of people lost policies that signed up for Obamacare and Obamacare increased the cost of health care for the 80% that had coverage.

I actually DID miss a total of two birthdays over the years on Qantas flights!!!! The first one was inadvertent...but, since then, I actually TRY to miss one!!!!

Let's hope at least a few more people follow your own lead with reaching out to the community as you do....

THAT puts the "Christ" into Christmas...and "new" into the New Year!!!

I hope you got some Beefalo!!!!
