Insurance Premiums For Single Women Double In CA


Recommended Posts

Democrats pretend Republicans are waging a "war on women" as a smokescreen to cover the actual ramifications of their actions.

many Americans face substantial increases in their health insurance premiums. Much of the debate has focused on young men, the bros who will bear the brunt of Obamacares rate hikes. But in California, women and men will see equally high jumps in the underlying cost of individual-market premiums.

 

This is because the Golden State already bars insurers from charging different rates on the basis of gender in the individual market.

 

...its terrible news for those with above-average incomes, along with those who are unmarried or childless.

 

...But in California, if youre a single woman with a decent-paying job that doesn't offer health insurance, youre about to get hammered.

Nice job Dummycrats! Good thing you fought so hard for those free contraceptives!

Well women voted Democrat and now they get to suffer the consequences.

 

The whole multi-racial Mr. Big in a suit marketing ploy by the Bilderbergers worked beautifully.

 

Getting women to vote against their self-interests again.

Maybe women just like to live on the Poverty Plantation.

Maybe we should have voted against it.Higher premiums damn, that is just so much worse than what came before it, when simply being female was considered a pre-existing condition that disqualified us from getting any coverage at all. You are so right, paying more is soooo much worse than no coverage at all.

When you have to lie to support your views, you've already lost.

So you are admitting defeat....

 

"Until now, it has been perfectly legal in most states for companies selling individual health policies — for people who do not have group coverage through employers — to engage in “gender rating,” that is, charging women more than men for the same coverage, even for policies that do not include maternity care. The rationale was that women used the health care system more than men. But some companies charged women who did not smoke more than men who did, even though smokers have more risks. The differences in premiums, from 4 percent to 48 percent, according to a 2008 analysis by the law center, can add up to hundreds of dollars a year. The individual market is the one that many people turn to when they lose their jobs and their group coverage."

 

"Insurers have also applied gender-rating to group coverage, but laws against sex discrimination in the workplace prevent employers from passing along the higher costs to their employees based on sex. Gender rating has taken a particular toll on smaller or midsize businesses with many women, like home-health care, child care and nonprofits. As a result, some businesses have been unable to offer health coverage or have been able to afford it only by using plans with very high deductibles."

 

"In a statement issued Thursday, Senator Mikulski said: “One of my hearings revealed that a woman was denied coverage because she had a baby with a medically mandated C-section. When she tried to get insurance coverage with another company, she was told she had to be sterilized in order to get health insurance. That will never, ever happen again because of what we did here with health care reform.”"

“It’s now official: being a woman is no longer a ‘pre-existing condition.’ Women across the country stood up and demanded an end to discriminatory treatment by insurance companies and the availability of quality, affordable health care for women and their families. Their voices were heard. The new law will end insurance company discrimination against women simply because they are women. No longer will they be allowed to charge millions of women higher premiums than men or deny coverage to women who have had Caesarean sections or who have survived domestic violence under the guise that these are ‘pre-existing conditions.’ No longer will they be able to deny coverage to women who have had breast or ovarian cancer. And no longer will they be able to deny women maternity care."

Women are regularly denied coverage for "pre-existing conditions" including pregnancy, a previous C-Section or past domestic abuse. Insurance companies charge women as much as 48 percent more for individual health care coverage than men. And it is expensive, difficult and in some states impossible for women to find coverage for maternity care when purchasing their own health insurance plan.

Being a woman is considered a pre-existing condition and it regularly prices women out of the market if they even have the chance to buy. If they are not told things like "you must be sterilized to receive coverage"

 

So how am I lying ? Or have we run into your hatred of women who see themselves as anything other than doormats?

No, I'm not admitting defeat at all. You claimed women couldn't get insurance because they were women.

That's simply not true. Paying more because you are woman, is not being told you can't have coverage because you're a woman.

Women pay more for insurance because women are more expensive.

That's the way insurance works.

 

It costs more to insure a Porsche than it does a Kia.

It costs more to insure a mansion than it does a townhome.

 

Why should I pay for insurance that covers pregnancy costs as a man?

Why should you NOT pay more for insurance because your medical bills are higher than mine?
