$333 to $965.
The Mangiones's insurance company, Humana, declined to comment. Humana did, however, include the following explanation in the rate spike announcement letter:
If your policy premium increased, you should know this isn't unique to Humana—premium increases generally will occur industry-wide. Increases aren't based on your individual claims or changes in health status. Many other factors go in to your premium including: ACA [Affordable Care Act—also known as Obamacare] compliance, including the addition of new essential health benefits.
Obamacare's government healthcare exchanges go live nationwide in six days.
BOcare stinks and soon America will see first hand what is in the bill.
Like an estimated 22 million other Americans,
I am a self-employed small-business owner who buys health insurance for my family directly on the individual market.
We have a high-deductible PPO plan that allows us to choose from a wide range of doctors.
Or rather, we had such a plan.
our family received notice from Anthem BlueCross BlueShield of Colorado that we can no longer keep the plan we like because of
"changes from health care reform (also called the Affordable Care Act or ACA)."
The letter informed us that
"(t)o meet the requirements of the new laws,
your current plan can no longer be continued beyond your 2014 renewal date."
Obama lied. My health plan died.
