The AP is reporting that in 39 States, insurance cost increases across the board of at least 25% and in many states policyholders are going to face increases of more than 100%!
Major health insurers: Aetna, Humana, and United Health Group are pulling out in many states.
Many consumers will be down to just one insurer which will lead to even higher costs!
ObamaCare is imploding! Obama destroyed insurance in America!
“It’s over for Obamacare,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said at a campaign rally Monday evening in Tampa, Florida.
“The new numbers aren’t too surprising!” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who chairs a committee that oversees ObamaCare. It “does little to dispel the notion we are seeing the law implode at the expense of middle-class families.”
The AP reports:
Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a mid-level benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. Some states will see much bigger jumps, others less.
Moreover, about 1 in 5 consumers will only have plans from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna scaled back their roles.
“Consumers will be faced this year with not only big premium increases but also with a declining number of insurers participating, and that will lead to a tumultuous open enrollment period,” said Larry Levitt, who tracks the health care law for the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation.
Barack Obama made some promises…
“In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.”
How about this one?
“That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.”
Maybe this one?
“For the 85 and 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing’s already happened. And their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.”
