Obamacare jacks up her insurance

A Democrat Staffer, Obamatron and Obamacare advocate gets bitch slapped by reality.
While it's just ancidotal, it is entertaining to see people on the left come out of their "hope & change" stupor.

Sue Klinkhamer has a problem.

It’s called Obamacare.

And the irony of her situation is not lost on her. In a recent email addressed to her former boss, Illinois Congressman Bill Foster, and other Democratic colleagues, she wrote:

“I spent two years defending Obamacare. I had constituents scream at me, spit at me and call me names that I can’t put in print. The congressman was not re-elected in 2010 mainly because of the anti-Obamacare anger. When the congressman was not re-elected, I also (along with the rest of our staff) lost my job. I was upset that because of the health care issue, I didn’t have a job anymore but still defended Obamacare because it would make health care available to everyone at, what I assumed, would be an affordable price. I have now learned that I was wrong. Very wrong.”

For Klinkhamer, 60, President Obama’s oft-repeated words ring in her ears: “If you like your health plan, you will keep it.”

Well, possibly not.

When Klinkhamer lost her congressional job, she had to buy an individual policy on the open market.

Three years ago, it was $225 a month with a $2,500 deductible. Each year it went up a little to, as of Sept. 1, $291 with a $3,500 deductible. Then, a few weeks ago, she got a letter.

“Blue Cross,” she said, “stated my current coverage would expire on Dec. 31, and here are my options: I can have a plan with similar benefits for $647.12 [or] I can have a plan with similar [but higher] pricing for $322.32 but with a $6,500 deductible.”

She went on, “Blue Cross also tells me that if I don’t pick one of the options, they will just assume I want the one for $647. ... Someone please tell me why my premium in January will be $356 more than in December?"

“I am a Democrat and I believe in health care for all,” she said.
“And I was excited that previously uninsured people could now get insurance on the open market.

But this is not affordable to me.”

Klinkhamer suggests renaming the Affordable Care Act.
“Just call it,” she said dryly, “the Available Care Act.”

You have no idea what kind of coverage she had with her present insurance, do you?

This is from your link.

As UCLA Public Policy expert Dr. Gerald F. Kominski told CBS News this week, Half of the 14 million people who buy insurance on their own are not going to keep the policies they previously had.

 

Part of the reason those policies will be more expensive, he explained, is that Obamacare is requiring insurers to offer "a better product with better protection."

No, and either do you.

This "but they are going to get better insurance" is the new talking point of the left to try to justify the lies that were told in order to get this law passed.

Problem is, Obama lied, regardless your spin.

 

She needs to look for an insurance plan on the insurance exchange. These are the unsubsidized prices for insurance plans in Illinois:

Sorry, but prices change depending on your zip code, your age and your income.

She'll pay a lot more than you, because she's 60 years old.

What's the deductibles retardo?

A Democrat Staffer, Obamatron and Obamacare advocate gets bitch slapped by reality.

While it's just ancidotal, it is entertaining to see people on the left come out of their "hope & change" stupor.

Since you seem to enjoy anecdotal evidence, here's some more:

 

I have been self-employed since 2002 and have had health insurance, on the same policy, with Blue Shield the entire time. I am currently paying $811 per month. My premiums have been raised frequently, randomly and excessively, particularly since they could see that their fleecing of the American public would soon be coming to an end. They could see that with President Obama and the Affordable Care Act that the only way they would be able to continue to rape uswithout even a hint of lubricantwould be to raise the premiums early and often.

 

Yesterday, October 1, 2013 marked the first day of open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act. I called Blue Shield, my current provider, to see what my options werealthough I must admit I was very skeptical.

 

To my surprise, I was told:

 

My $811 monthly premiums would be reduced to $85 per month

 

My $2400 annual medical deductible would be reduced to $500

 

My current maximum out-of-pocket expenses are determined by a complicated multitude of factors and would be reduced from a minimum of $4800 per year to a maximum of $2250 per year

 

My regular primary care physician visits are going to be reduced from $150 to $15

 

My lab work, x-rays, mammograms, etc. will be reduced to a maximum of $15 eachmany preventative visits are INCLUDED in the monthly premiums!

Do you see the flaw in her claims?

There is no plan available that costs $85/mo and has a $500 deductible. ]

And no co-pay for a standard doctor's office visit is $150.

 

You're not this gullible, are you?

Only $6,000 plus in premiums for INDIVIDUAL coverage........ What a bargain..... :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

 

For comparison purposes, my wife had an individual plan this year that covered 80% with a $1000 deductible for $140 a month and she's 48 years old and living in Illinois........

 

That's $2680 annually including deductibe.

Reduced TO $15, FROM $150.

No one has insurance that requires a $150 office copay.

Oh, Blue Cross!! No wonder it is so high. And she didn't even shop around. She can get coverage for $29. a month, dollar a day, $365. for the year. Now how hard is that to research?

If you are going to lie, why not just claim they are paying her for the honor of having her as a customer?

"My pvt ins has gone up from 168 to 425 from 2007-2010. My rates have skyrocketed b4 Obamacare was introduced. Tell me something new?

Plus an ins company can NOT CHANGE YOUR DEDUCTABLE lol (unless u sign a new policy):

"Three years ago, it was $225 a month with a $2,500 deductible. Each year it went up a little to, as of Sept. 1, $291 with a $3,500 deductible. Then, a few weeks ago, she got a letter."

Ok 225 to 291 isn't bad, but the company can't just change her DEDUCTABLE! There's some wrong or fishy data or reporting here! They also can not terminate your policy like that lol. Once u buy a policy, ALL they can do is bump up your rates unless you violated the policy or didn't pay. Again something sounds very wrong with the way this story has been

Only LEGAL way to for a company to cancel your policy:

1) you put false info (fraud)
2) fail to pay premiums
3) company goes out of business

They can NOT cancel it just because it's not cost effective.. Illegal and she can sue her ins company"

 

David Dutton5 hours ago

 


"All she needs to do it ditch her ins company and she can get same or better coverage.. That's what I'm doing. Ditching my plan, my company... Signing up with the new healthcare act. I get. BETTER policy for only 269$/month

Her plan is grandfathered. Those will spiral out of control. New plans can not go up more than 10%/yr unless they get approval."

 

...don't forget subsidies for the coverage...and subsidies for the deductibles. Most of the corporate media have, conveniently.

It's WAS an INDIVIDUAL plan DUMBASS. Her employer is dropping coverage when the employer mandates go through and it was cheaper to buy individual coverage than pay for her employer coverage.

 

Now, I have alll the family on my plan for less than what she was paying and it includes dental and eye vision. Working for a 135+ hospital chain has it's advantages. :D
