ObamaSCARE: Family’s Insurance Premium Triples

Obamacare insurance premiums triple

Andy and Amy Mangione of Louisville, Ky. and their two boys are like most middle class families who work hard and pay their bills on time. The couple expected their insurance premiums to increase slightly under the new Affordable Care Act, but they got shock of their lives when they opened their latest insurance bill and realized their monthly premium had tripled!

“When I saw the letter when I came home from work,” Andy told Fox News, “(it said) ‘your action required, benefit changes, act now.’ Of course I opened it immediately.”

Andy was stunned to see his insurance premium skyrocket from $333 a month to $965! The letter made it clear that the increase in premiums was in compliance with the new ObamaCare health care law.

“This isn’t a Cadillac plan, this isn’t even a silver plan,” Mangione said, referring to higher levels of coverage under ObamaCare.

“This is a high deductible plan where I’m assuming a lot of risk for my health insurance for my family. And nothing has changed, our boys are healthy– they’re young –my wife is healthy. I’m healthy, nothing in our medical history has changed to warrant a tripling of our premiums,” said Andy, still in shock.

The family’s insurance company, Humana, declined to comment when contacted by Fox News.

Further explanations in the letter provided little comfort to the Mangiones: “If your policy premium increased, you should know this isn’t unique to Humana — premium increases generally will occur industry-wide,” the letter reads in part.

“Increases aren’t based on your individual claims or changes in health status,” it continued. “Many other factors go in to your premium including: ACA compliance, including the addition of new essential health benefits.”

Robert Zirkelbach, spokesman for American Health Insurance Plans, explained the “additional health benefits: “for people who currently choose to purchase a high deductible, low premium policy that’s more affordable for them, they are now being required to add all these new benefits to their policy,” he said.

That,” he says, “is also going to add to the cost of their health insurance premiums.”

      That’s the insurance industry’s way of strong arming the president into throwing out healthcare reform. Can we opt out of our company’s insurance and get the government plan. I already pay $600/month for insurance. I don’t know how he was getting away with $300 for a family of at least four. Shoot they might have done a correction on his azz. I know how it is not to have insurance so I’m all for everyone having it. Now the hospitals can stop raising the price of healthcare talkin bout we’re paying for the uninsured. The greedy fat cats can kiss my grits!

      Some people can barely afford the basic healthcare plan. Our premiums are going up next year also. They increased this year slightly. I am goin to hve to drop mines and let hubs cover me. It’s crazy when a 1/3 of your check is taxes and 1/3 is insurance only. Crazy.

      This guy needs to shop around… Those high premiums should “open up the market” and new companies should be sprouting up to compete for our business. Even Walgreens has a prescription plan that helps you save money on certain meds…

      My ins went up this year also. But it’s not bad IMB… I pay about $375 a month, for med, dental, and vision insurance all together (3 diff cos, I just added it up).

I took my son to the ER because he was having a bad asthma attack Lawaniqa in there wit pookie n them talking bout she think she pregnant and came there for a pregnancy test. The ER short staffed so I had to wait while she pee on a stick and pray my son don’t go on to glory while I’m waiting. If Lawaniqa had to pay that ER bill she just created she’da went to the drugstore and bought a test.

      ******************

      umm, you must went to one of the state hospitals? Im sure that girl wasnt in there just for shyts n giggles. Hell who wants sit in the ER for hours for preg test? Maybe she was having complications or spotting or some? IDK. There are many places that offer preg test for free. I know. I done been to them the all :eek: J/P.

      because peanut allergies are fatal and a child with a peanut allergy has to have an epi pen on him at all times (one for school/one for home/$150 each). unfortunately, the medicine doesnt last forever. i think all medicine expires within a few months or a year. we still had all the medicine i been paid for all these other years. i prolly got a thousand dollars worth of expired epipens in my bathroom right now.

      Sandra, news media outlets are reporting that the health care law may not pass the Democratic-controlled senate. Forcing people and saying they HAVE to have insurance or you are fined is not going to fly with too many. Most people like to “think” they have a choice.. even if we don’t technically… What I’d like to understand is why he couldn’t help minimize deductibles without raising premiums before trying to force people to get insurance. If you make it more affordable, people will be signing up for insurance. Most don’t have insurance b/c of neglect, they have it b/c they can’t afford it.

      I’ll be honest, many of my friends work for themselves as well, work for small companies or are consultants and pay health care monthly/independently. BUT the deductible is so dang high, you can be sitting here paying $300+ a month for one person which is already hard and then STILL never utilize the insurance properly b/c you can’t come up with the ridiculous deductible (1-5000k). It’s going to be same thing for the MASSES of people who are forced to get insurance. You’ll be paying a monthly fee … but only when you pay that deductible can you be seen.

      @Carrington you here for a bit? Lets #discuss

      I think its funny that certain factions refuse to support anything he does because of who he is.

      To me that is a MAJOR factor in why this “healthcare” reform is causing so much division and angst…but the major talking points are “Its too expenisve” Not WHY is it so expensive. Insurance companies have profit as the number one. They can “say” they have a customer centric focus but if they did they all would operate more like allstate (customer friendly ins comp).

      He pulled bits from here, bits from there. How is it possible to tailor a plan to fit the whole country? All of us have to give and take.

      Good Morning all, well working for the largest health care provider in PA BC/BS, the real reason your premiums go up every year is rather simple because we want too and we can, its not like your employeer is going to give you any more than 3 or 4 options and only two of those options are good ones.

      ==============
      That may be how it begins, but when anything is market based, it should improve for the customer AND THEN those employers like your job will be forced to lay off workers, so it will balance out :tea:

      IMB :eek:

      OTB – I absolutely have NO viable debate as it relates to people fighting the President simply for the sake of fighting him. THAT is as clear as day to anyone willing to accept the reality of life in America in 2013 – where is it rooted? Partially it’s party politics which is the name of the game, but overwhelmingly, it reeks racism. No more. No less.

      Do I think he has some good policies? Eh… I honestly can’t say that he would be amongst my top 5 – but I don’t aww his policies being that much worse, or better, than Bush’s so, they’re about a tie in terms of MY bottom line. I suspect that some are loyal to a party, some are loyal to a race, and some are loyal to their bottom line and I happen to fall into the latter category.

      In a perfect world, he’d be able to do his job and make everyone happy, but the reality is that no one will ever be happy. You make the poor folk happy, you piss off the rich folk because that happiness usually comes at a financial loss for them. You make the rich folk happy, and you’ve pissed off the poor folk.

      Meanwhile, people in the middle just stuck like chuck.

      He’s never going to win, but where I see the fail for us is that he won’t be taken seriously if we don’t call him out on the things that he’s not handling that affect us in a positive way.

      I’m a chuck too. :hi: Too employed for “benefits”…too underemployed to “middle class” my way thru.

      I do agree that he needs to be taken to task. On many things. Healthcare, poverty and the link to racism, gender equality. He “loves” ladies (big flirt..) but Obama hasnt really put that many into position. I see him. :huh:

      Then again if we call him out too loud, the majority (and thats still not brown ppl, no matter what census says) will jump on that like flies to chit and rabblerouse.

      You are free to use to the insurance marketplace to get a better deal on insurance than the one your employer uses. The employer contribution will not be the same, but it may work better for you and your family.
      I have BCBS and pay $125 per month for me and my son. No co-pay for wellcare visits for my 16 month old or my maternity checkups.
      It really depends on your employer – soooo that doesn’t necessarily fall into Obama’s lap. If your employer skimps on their contribution to your insurance, that is something to take up with them.
