I found some information today that is helping me understand in real terms how much of a subsidy I might be entitled to with the new health insurance
reform laws. While this year has been disastrous financially for me and I am currently qualified for Medicaid, future years look much brighter but
like most of you I would like to plan ahead and figure out how much I will need a year to pay for my insurance. I'm pleasantly surprised about some
of what I see (if this all pans out) for various income levels. This is definitely going to help out lots of people. Take a look for yourself to see
in real dollars how the new laws will affect you and your family.
I still do not like the bill as I was for the public option and because I believe that the whole idea of "subsidies" might put a person receiving
them in some kind of "welfare class" but this is what we ended up with and I hope it will be helpful to some of you who are not rich to see exactly
how this might affect you.
Please note that the Kaiser Family Foundation are not the same as the Kaiser's who sell insurance. Thoughts on this? How does is affect you?
As you know by now the Kaiser foundation is a branch of the kaiser health care plan that is one of the largest private health care in the nation.
Their calculator is base on what they think is going to happen and subject to change as with everything this just predictions by the same groups
that are the ones been bailed out by our run corporate government, and the ones that will be controlling mandatory health care premiums.
The purpose the the Kaiser Family Foundation is research and education and they have done a lot of good work in this area. This foundation is a
non-profit organization and has done a lot of good in AIDS/HIV research and education but you could check that out for yourself. Kaiser health
insurance is a different organization/co. but by the by I have heard it is quite good as far as health insurance companies go though this has nothing
to do with this calculator.
I am not linking to an insurance company. Did you try the calculator yourself? Not even interested as to how this might work in theory? No problem.
I fall under retiree military subside government health care, actually if things got the way they are our premiums may increase, we are still fighting
for military retirees rights.
Now, don't get confused with Kaiser "Research" and Kaiser "insurance" they are linked together, see calling a branch "none profit" they get to
make their own research and manipulate results that then our corporate run government accepts creating rules and regulations that are not for the
benefit of the people but those that funds this so call "none profit" organizations under the table, including big pharma.
This how things are done in the US, any independent study that is not backed by those on the top funneling money to politicraps are dismiss and
I am bumping this little known tool so everyone can see what Obamacare will cost you.
For me and my husband, if we didn't have health insurance through work, ours would cost $18,647. $6000 of this is because we smoke! And we are
middle class! This is huge folks! People would have to sell their houses to pay for this!
But I have another question... Where on earth is the government getting all this money for subsidies? I mean what if we were fully subsidized? That
is the government paying nearly $20,000 for one family!
The US economy will be collapsing! Doom!
