People are Avoiding Doctors due to ObamaCare

from the Blaze:

Obamacare is now so terrible, people aren’t going to their doctors — even when sick

When the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010, its supporters celebrated the legislation, calling it a landmark bill that would make Americans healthier and lower health care costs for families. Eight years later, it’s clearer than ever the ACA’s “Obamacare” exchanges have done quite the opposite. Not only are health care costs skyrocketing, the health insurance provided by Obamacare is so expensive for people to use that millions more Americans are now choosing not to go to the doctor — even when they’re sick or injured. read more

The Obamacare Scheme may be Imploding Ahead of Schedule

IBD wrote  last week that the, “Illinois’ insurance regulator said ObamaCare premiums in the state will jump as high as 55%. The Obama administration’s response to this and other news of massive rate hikes: Don’t worry. Be happy.”

Yes, be happy that this fall Illinois Obamacare premiums will increase by an average of 48% – the Bronze by 44%, the Silver by 45% and the Gold by 55%.

What ever happened to that $2500 savings we were promised? Well, some will save – in fact, make out like bandits. Those being subsidized will see their subsidies increase, allowing plans to be offered for less than $100 per month – for every increase in our premium means an increase in the subsidy.

And if you think Illinois is an outlier, think again. As one state’s losses pile up, other states will follow. Nationwide, insurers and exchanges are recording massive losses, which means the rest of us will be stuck holding the bag with 40-50 percent increases every year to pay for those losses and the subsidized. read more

President Barack Obama assailed Republicans on Thursday for trying to dismantle his signature health care law, saying it’s already providing a benefit of one kind or another to millions of Americans, including a drop in projected premium costs in nearly a dozen states. But experts predict that premiums on individual plans will increase in most states because of the new consumer protections the sweeping legislation requires. The impact on premiums will vary across states depending on geographic location, the type of coverage and the individual characteristics of the enrollee.
