We had a mandatory Insurance meeting yesterday. HR said our insurance company was trying to lock in a new policy that meet the ACA requirements before the first of the year. I was prepared for a bit of sticker shock, having heard the horror stories. But I was not prepared for what I found at the meeting.
I had been paying $99.07 pretax every two weeks for my personal health insurance. My deductible was $5000.00 and my co pays were $40.00.
Thanks to Obamacare, my new policy costs $100.42, and for that $1.35, my Deductible went to $2500.00 and my co pays went to $30.00.
(the pencils are to block out the company info, in case any of it is protected. I dont wanna get sued or fired, and yeah the current plan shows a 10K deductible, but my premium included a 5K gap so the net deductible was $5000)
Dont you just hate it when the govt gets involved in your insurance?
Me, too… NOT!!!!
