If you’ve had any experience with the Health Insurance Marketplace you know that it’s a tough pill to swallow. You’re damned if you do and can be totally screwed if you don’t. Health insurance premiums are going up across the nation and social media is blowing up with frustrated people who are struggling with the premiums as they are…
This makes me so mad. I couldn’t afford insurance and still be able to take my kids to the Dr so we opted out. But thanks to obummer we still get to pay for someone else to have insurance. Boo
Higher premiums & co-pays with substandard service… Or better yet, go to the hospital without insurance face that bill and then the fine for not having the insurance… it’s truly a loosing battle for most Americans.
Most of you are familiar with the letter from your current carrier letting you know how much your current health insurance premiums are going up. Although the average is 25% across the nation, your plan may show an increase of 40% or even more.
Let not your heart be troubled, however. What these notices don’t tell you is how much your subsidy is also increasing. Approximately 86% of Americans are currently receiving a subsidy that offsets or shares the cost of their health insurance premium. The good news is that the number of eligible subsidy recipients isn’t likely to change much if at all for 2017 and many subsidies are actually increasing Many of the families and individuals who call us are surprised to hear that their share of the premium cost is relatively the same or at least not as high as they were expecting.
