Wouldn't that be great if people make more money than projected? Say, make another $5000 and have to refund $500 as a consequence? Only a moron would cry about that.
You're not in accounting or the medical profession or you would know better than to call someone else a moron for posting the truth. You can start becoming educated by reading here. You can then go over the entire IRS website for more details on how the advance tax credits work. Indeed, this can cause a hardship for someone who makes only a little above what they projected. I will attach first the general Q&A for the exchanges and then the link for the IRS itself. Please become educated before you troll.

Bloomberg poll: Obamacare gets record support
by Joan McCarter
http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/03/13/1284...
While the Republican House of Representatives is preparing to vote on what is basically their 52nd attempt to repeal Obamacare wholly or in part, a new poll from Bloomberg shows the foolishness of that agenda.
President Barack Obama’s health-care law is becoming more entrenched, with 64 percent of Americans now supporting it outright or backing small changes.[…]
“Things definitely seem to be getting better,” said Paul Attard, 50, a political independent in Evergreen, Colorado and a program manager for a cell-phone company who wants the law modified rather than repealed.“It seems like they are getting a lot more people to join. It’s a sign that the system is working.”[…]
Fifty-one percent of Americans favor retaining the Affordable Care Act with “small modifications,” while 13 percent would leave the law intact and 34 percent would repeal it. That’s the highest level of public acceptance for the law yet in the Bloomberg poll.
While Republicans are going to keep running on repealing Obamacare, more and more people are going to come to the conclusion Mr. Attard has. It's working, so why abandon it. And why spend so much time and energy on it? Meanwhile, Democrats will continue to hit the issue that is key to voters right now: economic fairness.
Hey buddy...your fearless leader is worried about midterms. Maybe you should call him about a job since you seem to know better than the President of the United States of America.

5 million out of 330 million have signed up....even with liberal lie stupid math.....that is nowhere near 64% of anything but hope and change.

The Democrats will be aborted in November....they can run but not hide. Voting records will haunt them.

it seems to me that you are a loon, and like to make up fantasy.
So Bloomberg is a made up entity? What medication are you on?

Not really. I just looked up some info for someone who hasn't signed up yet. The deductible is just over $6K for a single. Guess what? He stays uninsured because he can't afford the deductible. You have to be in a very particular income bracket to get any qualifying subsidies - and because they are advance tax credits, the IRS may come looking for their money back if you make more in 2014 than you listed when you signed up.

Your definition of affordable can't possibly match up with anyone who can add 2 + 2.

Not to mention that Romneycare isn't working so well, either. Were you aware? No, of course not.

Maybe you should have looked at a policy that didn't have a $6,000 deductible.

You never answered my question the other day. Are you a single payer advocate?

Gawd.

Every single last one of them had a $6000 deductible. So then we went over to catastrophic where, of course, it too has a $6000 deductible.

I've been posting here a long time mostly about the same issue and why I keep posting about that issue (HINT: I did not vote for Bush either time and sometimes vote third party). If you are too dense to figure it out, well, that's your problem.

Well, he's right on that so why are you calling him a name? The lower the deductible, the higher the premiums. I was looking at plans that had 'affordable' premiums but they were negated by the high deductibles. People living paycheck to paycheck can't afford that, unless they have kids, are not married and fall into a very specific income bracket and can qualify for the advance tax credits assuming they already know they won't be making a dime more next year. There are people who do not want the IRS breathing down their back so they will forgo getting insured, and once people really understand how this system was set up I doubt they'll be doing it again next year - especially since we've already been warned that premiums will skyrocket due to the amount of sick people who signed up.

Insured patients are billed at greatly discounted rates from what uninsured patients are billed. You know this. Especially for things like lab tests, the discounted rate can be as little as 5% of the list price.

As you well know, your imaginary friend would not actually pay $6k in deductibles unless he had a piano fall on his head. He would not pay $600 if he was in good health. I have never fulfilled my $2500 deductible and I use my doctors.

And quit being so mysterious about the income limit for insurance subsidies. It is 400% of the federal poverty level. I think that is about $45k for a single adult, and it goes up for families. Not exactly big bucks but enough to buy decent health insurance and still live comfortably.

Lower premiums are worthless if you have to cough up $6000 before you can even be seen without having to pay all costs up front (assuming you have a job [non-exempt] and not a career [exempt]. I didn't figure you for the Organizing for America bandwagon type. Who knew?!

If you are supporter of single payer, it is odd that you are so anti-ACA and anti-Obama. It is the GOP that is the impediment to a single payer system, not Obama and the Democrats.

If the only policies you could find had $6,000 deductibles, you weren't doing it right.

That's why we need single payer. It's too bad that instead of advocating for a meaningful change, all you can do is cry about the ACA, which is the only effort that has been made by the government to help the people you claim to care about.

That BS and you know it. Most doctor visits only require a copay.

Che, go stick it where the sun don't shine. You're clueless. A HDHP requires you to pay your deductible IN FULL before anything will be covered and more and more companies are going the way of HDHPs because they ultimately save costs for the company. Their number crunchers figure out exactly what the average is that an employee spends on health care and uses that as a benchmark for the deductible, thereby saving the company money.

You don't even understand how medical insurance works. Maybe you are on Medicaid as some have suggested.

Unlike you, I have a life outside of Topix. What I do with that life as far as career and other related endeavors go has never been discussed here. Ever. As a lawyer, why, oh why, am I having to explain this to you? And so what if I complain about the ACA? Maybe it will alert another cancer patient to pay attention, maybe not, but regardless, you don't own the place.
