Slidecage: Ok, that's a fair point. I recall an argument against it, but I can't remember it right now so I'll concede the point.
Next, how much do you think your insurance will go up? Or did it? Because I'm pretty sure nothing has even taken effect yet, until October 1st.
Regarding the cost of the Obamacare premiums, the Obama administration projects it at $328 per month for a mid-level plan. I am hesitant to believe that, as the administration has every reason act optimistically. However, the Congressional Budget Office projects the mid-level at $390. Again, that's for a mid-level plan, so conceivably people can also find a lower-level plan with a higher deductible.
Your example of Medicaid is a poor one, because Obamacare hasn't done anything to it yet. The expanded coverage will occur next year, and states have the option to stick with the current levels of funding and eligibility.
And while you say people get it for free, even the poor pay taxes. Here's an article from Forbes, which I consider a right-leaning magazine since it ran stories called "beware who might tell on you cheating on your taxes." I figure if a right-leaning publication is going to say that the poor also pay taxes, it MUST be true, because a left-leaning publication would claim they pay even more.
gives you an idea of what your going to pay.
now you enroll in OCT But it dont kick in till Jan but someone said you will be billed as soon as you join?
my health care went from 2200 to 3000 per year (around those numbers i think i posted them somewhere before i need to find them) i know im paying around 250 a month now what is almost a 40% jump. . I am no longer able to pay yearly (what i did) now im forced to pay monthly and pay a monthly bill charge (unless i want to pay online)
what does not add up though i check on that site if you make like 24999 in my state 85% of the entire cost is covered yet if you make 25,000 only 12% is covered
not sure what this means
Enter annual income (dollars) does that make the entire amount you MADE before any deductions or after all deductions. I made around 30k before but after i write off my miles it knocks me down to 18k
if its 30 k if i go here im looking at
2532 with only a write off of 24 bucks what gives me the middle plan for 2512 with no limit on out of pocket
IF i do 18k
2532 with a write off of 1760 what gives me the middle plan for 775 per year... with no limit on out of pocket
REMEMBER THE FIRST YEAR THERE IS NO LIMIT ON OUT OF POCKET ITS NOT FIXXED YET
also you noticed it says
You could receive a government tax credit subsidy of up to: 1760
MEANING YOUR GOING TO HAVE TO PAY THE ENTIRE 2600 bucks and then AT THE END OF 2014 you get to write off 1760 on your taxes. THIS IS NOTHING NEW PEOPLE WHO BUY THEIR INSURANCE NOW GET TO WRITE IT OFF ALREADY. (UNLESS THIS IS SOMETHING NEW AND IM TAKING IT FOR SOMETHING ELSE)
also how many people are really going to put their SS number into an system what is not even protected
sorry but have my own plan for 3000 with max out of pocket 1500
or buy the goverment plan for 2600 with no max out of pocket
i stick with my own plan if i can come up with the rest of the cash.
ALSO I wonder why the goverment plans your allowed to pay YEARLY YET if you go buy your own your FORCED INTO MONTHLY
