You should forget your jobs health insurance and get on the aca.

I pay far less on the aca than I did with my job . And it's the same coverage.

I get dental/ vision and full health coverage through the aca.

It's awesome.

These people are complaining that their healthcare through their employers went up.

They should drop it and get on the aca.
Much cheaper.

Possibly because for me, blue cross blue shield gold through my employer cost me 146 dollars a month with a 500 deductible.

Then the aca happened.

The aca equivalent was going to cost me 895 a month with a 2,000 dollar deductible.

In my case, once the aca pretty much collapsed in my state, my employer was finally able to go back to our old plan, although this time he just pays all of it.

The aca for my wife and I would have cost 1700 dollars.

Because I would be paying for you too, you see.

Crappy plan for those of us that make more than 40k.

Poverty from laissez-faire capitalism kills more people than any totalitarian communist dictator has ever achieved.


So no, you don't know anyone who was kicked off their insurance because of the tax plan?

Thanks for your contribution to the thread.

That's what my full coverage with dental cost me now through the aca.

I work and pay taxes too.

So I also pay for my aca and everyone else.

I have no problem paying a little more in my taxes so other people that don't work can have health care.

You obviously have disposable income, since you've got internet. I don't wanna work anymore. Send me money.

Not currently.

I was kicked off my health insurance back around 2010. It was replaced with a much costlier plan that didn't cover half as much.


In that sense, I as well was kicked off my insurance.

Cigna dropped our 15$ co-pay (doesn't matter what the issue was... 15 bucks was all it ever cost) and my 50$ E-room co-pay (same thing... 50 bucks and everything was taken care of - no limit).

This was right after we heard the words... "If you like your insurance plan, you can keep it"!

Sadly, very shortly after, Cigna said - Nope... Can't do that any more. And we got stuck with Blue Cross Blue Shield. Now... Being a middle class single guy... I can't afford to go to the doctor out of pocket. The only reason I have insurance right now is because my company dropped 1200 bucks in a savings for medical bills. When that runs out.. (Probably soon since my doc visits are around 100+ per visit and my meds are paid for that way as well) I just assume pull my insurance because I wouldn't be able to afford going to a doctor out of pocket.


....and for that, if I were an evil person... I'd wish the most violent sickness on the person that made this happen AND his children.

Yeah, that's some pretty crappy words but you can't tell me that the same atrocity wouldn't happen to people who simply can't afford to go to the doctor after their unsurance dropped them from a co-pay to a (Oh we're only going to pay ONLY 20% AFTER you spend 6 grand and not one cent before).

So yeah.... Hope he get's a 10 year bout of anal leakage and oral flatulence.

Try switching to the ACA. It's much cheaper than what I was offered from my job.

At least for me.



Doesn't matter. Right now the only things you get to chose from are 3 different plans that changes your deductible depending on how much they're going to take out of your check every month. My company pays half but the monthly is still high and the deductible at it's cheapest is 1500 bucks (which costs me a bit over 300 a month.


This doesn't make much sense to me. It's almost like they're raping me on purpose.

I work for a multi-billion dollar multi national company. They get the best insurance (used to) plans on the planet. All in one swoop, the insurance plans are turned on their heads and my insurance goes from being 100$ cheaper each month without a deductible (co-pay only) to the current monthly cost and a mandatory deductible before I even get a 20% off coupon for my ills.

What's more funny....

My dental insurance is 20% off (no deductible) flat.

My vision insurance gives me 160$ a year for eye care if I need it and even throws in some perks towards the frames and what kind of lenses I choose and if the frames are under a certain amount (140$), the insurance pays for them. All that for a 20$ co-pay.


Wait wait... Here's the kicker...

BOTH of those insurances cost me less than 7$ a month! !!!!!COMBINED!!!!!

WTF

I'm about to be kicked off mine, because I ain't gonna pay for that sh!t anymore.

I'm 35, self employed, perfectly healthy, don't smoke, and my rate has doubled every year since this BS started.

I've got a $10k deductible... so unless I have a heart attack out of nowhere or get hit by a truck, I'm out of pocket anyway.





Yea this is not really insurance.

Correct. But all Obama and his cronies cared about was that on paper, you looked "insured". They could say X many million people got "insurance" who didn't have it before. It didn't matter that they were forced to get it or face a penalty, and that it was so expensive to use that they were effectively still uninsured.

Sure there were people who benefited, there are people who benefit from every law. There were plenty of people who got #ed by it too.

And I'd like to note that this topic has been up for 2 days now and no one has come in with an article about someone who got kicked off their insurance, which we all know the media would love to highlight. I have no doubt there would've been a 60 Minutes segment dedicated to it by now if it was really happening. Maybe there has been and I just didn't see or hear about it, which is why I posted here asking. Is there really no one who is aware of an article or news segment done highlighting all these "victims" of the tax plan? Not even any anecdotal stories?

Man, I really have to force myself off this thread because it more than infuriates me. I start wishing bad thing on bad people and that's not me.

Stuff like this makes a person have anxiety, which requires a doctor and xanax to assist (not fix) in the depression/anxiety.


Anyone see the irony in that?


That's one hell of a circle jerk, with one big, idiot jerk in the middle.

The aca doesn't have anything to do with your employer.

I had about 5 or 6 plans to choose from thorough the aca website here in florida . My employer doesn't even now I am on it.
Only 3 plans? Have you checked the aca website?




depending on how much they're going to take out of your check every month.

Because I use the aca I pay it each month like I would a utility bill. Or I don't. No one takes it from me.

I pay $160 a month for health, dental and vision. Again I pay, it's not taken from my check.

It is so much better than anything I ever got from a full time employer.

And yes I got to keep my doctor.
