Wil Tomei: Estimated monthly premium for You, your spouse, and your children
$355.62 Per month for low income good luck with your plan. Looks like I'll be one of them family's out on the street with this healthcare or living in my house with none. Thanks Obama for giving me a clear choice on what to pick.
Kay Kendrick: I am fortunate to work for Google, our family health plan cost $1949 per month which Google pay most of. We will be hit with a 40% Cadillac tax in 2018 for having great insurance, so to prepare for that our benefits are being trimmed and premiums increased. Starting next year we will for the first time have a deductible and coinsurance on top of the high monthly premiums.
I realize I don’t have much to complain about, but considering the high premiums we already pay, you would think we pay enough, but you’d be wrong, the Cadillac tax will hit us HARD which will affect profit sharing, raises and ultimately companies bottom line. My family will now pay an additional $1500 per year for less coverage on top of the $23,388 yearly premium.
I can afford to pay more so it’s ok, but enough is enough, health coverage shouldn’t cost a brand new car every year. If you want to make health coverage affordable, then fix hospital billing, it shouldn’t cost $6000 to recover in a room for 6 hours, I mean come on, I didn’t even sleep there.
Nate Stafford: Got a letter saying my current insurance coverage can no longer be offered, but I can sign up for one of the new plans for a 120% increase in premium just to keep the same level of coverage. When is someone going to be honest about the cost increases this program is causing, and the millions who will be forced into the exchanges looking for subsidies will demonstrate the failure of the program and its unintended consequences, not it's success. Will someone please be honest about the costs of this program. Please.
