Obamacare Customers In For
Deductible Sticker Shock

Breitbart, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:pucky1, 5/10/2014 7:02:27 AM

A new report finds that Obamacare customers are in for sticker shock because, unlike many employer-sponsored insurance plans, the fine print in many Obamacare policies requires patients to meet their deductible before lower-cost prescription drug co-pays kick in. That means hefty out-of-pocket expenses for Obamacare plan holders, especially since Obamacare deductibles are "relatively high" as compared to employer-sponsored insurance plans.

Comments:
Gotta pay and pay and pay. That´s all this Obamacare mess can get out. Now it´s over $2,500 out of packet for drugs at full cost before you get help

The Federal Government already spends more per capita on health care (Medicare, Medicaid, VA, SCHIP) than the UK does for their National Health. They could have given us "socialize medicine" by just combining all the existing programs without increasing costs. But theDemocrats could not resist adding a new giant program. I think this is the last straw for the economy - people can only pay so much...

Oh come on....you are telling me that the buyers dot not understand this ?

If that is true, then 75% will stop paying premiums almost immediately. Should be interesting to watch.....of course the administration will NOT have any numbers on that.

Agree with #2.

obamaCare is so outrageously expensive that there must be big hole in there, I mean there´s a spot in the flow of payments that HHS (or the IRS) is syphoning off huge money, maybe 25%-40%. "Management fee". Seriously. That´s the way the Mob does stuff, the Chicago way.

The ´Web Site´ was designed to hide the details and delay the disastrous impact of this economy wrecker. There were no glitches only features. All ´binary´ systems serve as logic tests. Therefore when it becomes too difficult to make the system lie it must be declared ´broken´. Dems need a new and improved form of computation.....perhaps a ´triplex´ system which includes a ´maybe´ and does not require a clear 0 or 1.

All of my girlfriends with small babies said they must go back to work for benefits. I said why not go on obamacare? They all said they cannot afford the 1000-1500 per month price. And, that is not including the deductibles.

The whole insurance program is a fraud. It is very very expensive. It ONLY benefits self-employed people who can afford the extra grand a month.

ObamaCare is not about healthcare or providing healthcare it is about control, control of the healthcare industry.

Under my old plan, I would be out $12K before insurance paid anything. Thereafter, they would pay 80% for covered procedures in network, if you can find a doctor that has an open schedule and is willing to see you, and you are able or willing to wait for the service. This is very expensive faux insurance, and like obama, a lie.

But if the average silver plan deductible is $2,267 and the president said we will save $2,500 each, then we are $233 to the good! And even better since he also said we are saving 3000%! Where´s my check?!

In the pre-ObamaCare days I had multiple coverage options. One option reduced the monthly payment for a couple to $5 by increasing the deductible to $2500 per person and by increasing copay from 20% to 25%. The annual spending cap was the same as the cadillac plan. Clearly this plan was based on the concept that if you have skin in the game, you will spend your money wisely.

The final blow of ObamaCare will come when people file their 2014 taxes. If they received a premium subsidy, it will be counted as income on which they´ll owe taxes.

Paying bloated premiums month after month, then realizing they are paying full price for visits, drugs, and services month after month will open their eyes fairly quickly.

Insurance is a misnomer for this whole scheme. It is certainly not like auto collision insurance or renter/home owner insurance. It seems more like a version of an auto warranty/service plan that covers basic scheduled maintenance and some major components.

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

On July 16, comic character Archie Andrews, of Life With Archie, will die after being shot while protecting gay friend Kevin Keller. Keller is "Archie Comics´ first openly gay character." According to the Associated Press, Keller is "a married military veteran and newly elected senator who´s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting." Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen. While he could have been killed saving "Betty" or saving "Veronica," doing so for Keller was something "that would really resonate

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
