I understand the impacts of ObamaCare, as it affects my prices today. 60% increase in family premium for 2012-13 coverage year. Yes 60% increase for family coverage up to $964.00 month with a lower quality plan.
This is being blamed upon the mandated "wellness" portion of our coverage and the mandated requirements for specialty woman's care within ObamaCare. This is what has been specifically told to us by two different insurance agencies and also from one of the corporate policy experts at big blue.
Now, how in the hell can a working stiff pay these kinds of increases. And for the individual coverage of our employees, it is amazing how this year the cost based upon age has skyrocketed also. Won't pay for a company to keep the older guys around who have the knowledge and ability to make money on the jobs. Now we're going to have to rotate the labor shelves to keep the supply young and inexpensive.
60% increase???? Maybe I do need to go ahead and move up there with Printer and get some of the "free" stuff too...........
