Survey: US sees sharpest health insurance premium increases in years
Health insurance premiums are showing the sharpest increases perhaps ever according to a survey of brokers who sell coverage in the individual and small group market. Morgan Stanley’s healthcare analysts conducted the proprietary survey of 148 brokers. The April survey shows the largest acceleration in small and individual group rates in any of the 12 prior quarterly periods when it has been conducted.

The average increases are in excess of 11% in the small group market and 12% in the individual market. Some state show increases 10 to 50 times that amount. The analysts conclude that the “increases are largely due to changes under the ACA.” ...

ACA is nothing more than predatory capitalism. is this a left thing, or a right thing? I don't know, you force money out of people who don't have it, force companies to go to part time work, sure there will be some winner in this, but could I really be ecstatic over a benefit that is a result of extortion and hardship of so many? collectivism means one group will gain the advantage over the other. is this really how we want our society to run? I don't. wasn't it Emmanuel (what a name!?) that said the idea is to collapse the system so they can create a different kind of market? who thinks like that? psychopaths.

Thanks, Jim, but I don't willingly participate in your favorite lesbian's dreamworld. I would suggest you take a look at what the administration Thinks About You in your support of Obamacare.

Ah, thank you gentlemen, as other vets, would say too.

Now to something a little less important. Mike of N.Y., and here you thought Sally only had five reasons to love Obamacare! 317 million reasons to love Obamacare .e.g., "-- Plus, we all benefit from new requirements that insurance companies must spend at least 80% of our premium dollars on our health care as opposed to marketing or administration" So, Mike go there and read all the reasons.

Ah, you guys were just frustrated with the enrollment process last year weren't you?

States Race to Improve Health Exchanges as Open Enrollment Nears
The increases in rates, deductibles, loss of insurance, doctors (If you like your insurance policy you can keep your insurance policy, period, etc.) no $2500 savings, loss of choice have nothing to do with the enrollment process. But you keep telling yourself that, Jim. Just pretend the big change due to the election had nothing to do with ocare.

What contempt this administration has for the American people. They even admit lying:

Yes, UPS, they should have made sign up mandatory like they do in Massachusetts, If ObamaCare Is So Bad, How Does RomneyCare Survive? and considering how things were, Five reasons Americans already love ObamaCare — plus one reason why they’re gonna love it even more, soon. ACA is still the next best thing to slice bread.

One should add the HealthCare.gov opens for insurance plan shoppers, so it's time for you to sign up, UPS.

Thing is the uninsured are NOT the ones signing up for the Unaffordable Unhealthy Act. The young and healthy are NOT signing up for it. People think premiums are high now, they will double in October (just in time for the election---yup that is why after praising its success last week Sebilius was let go, dems can see hand writing on wall) Hate to say I told you so, because I wish I was wrong, but I told you so.

Hi Barry, it depends on the State where you live. NY, because it is a leader in over-regulation, control, and diminishment of choices, which has already driven premiums higher, actually experiences a slight decrease. People in some States are experiencing dramatically higher premiums, especially for the young, the ones who need it least, but whose money is coveted by the govt. to pay for the program.

We have to remember, when the govt mandates insurance cover a minimum package of benefits, i.e. a more generous package whether you want or need it, the more expensive it will be.

Perhaps they can help pay for it with the $2500 lower premiums per family the prez promised Obamacare would deliver.

insurance companies have become a heavy weight and a stumbling block.

they have had influence in policy making as to defining of disease. and yes, when everyone is forced into one concept of disease it is a political process, not necessarily scientific.

I'm to the point thinking that if the whole system just ended tomorrow and people once again paid cash for awhile everyone would be better off.

the system is not able to fluctuate with the actual economy of patients, but is rather artificially propped up with so many middle men, regulations, and beyond that limited to only one very limited form of dealing with the body, that is allopathy.

it forces the poor onto subsidized insurance that gives them no options to correct nutritional and environmental illness, which are the norm of our era.
