Sam Hobbs is yearning for the old Blue Cross Blue Shield Plan he had for 32 years pre-Affordable Care Act. It cost about $895 a month to cover Hobbs, his wife and two teenage boys with a $4,000 deductible.
But it was discontinued as insurance companies revamped their plan offerings when Obamacare became law and started requiring new plans. In the past 14 months, Hobbs has had two Highmark plans canceled. Today, he is debating a plan that’s close to $1,800 a month with a $14,300 deductible.
The jury is in ! Obamacare didn’t low the cost of healthcare nor did it slow the pace of rising cost! Factor in the out of pocket deductible which continues to go with monthly premiums the cost of healthcare is getting no so affordable for many middle-class with limited Obamacare Health Credits.
Personally I think its time all elected officials state and federal be required to participate in this corrupt healthcare exchange!
