    Insurers on Obamacare: Expect Premium Prices to Soar

    Health insurance premiums will likely skyrocket next year, despite the Obama administration’s consistent assurance that consumers will not experience sticker shock under the president’s health care law.

    That’s according to industry insiders who told The Hill that they are expecting the price of monthly premiums to increase significantly. In some states, rates could increase by as much as 300 percent.

    “There is extensive concern about rate increases next year,” said Avalere Health’s Vice President Caroline Pearson. “Particularly since early exchange enrollment is skewed toward older enrollees, some are concerned that plans will need to raise prices in 2015.”

    But insurers say a combination of Obamacare’s new taxes and fees, as well as rule changes and delays announced to cope with the rocky rollout, will likely contribute to higher than expected rates.

    For instance, the administration’s decision to allow people to keep their old policies likely means that fewer people than anticipated are enrolling on the new exchanges.

    This is bad news for the Obama administration, which has routinely pointed out that premiums on the exchanges are less expensive than comparable employer-based policies. While premiums may be cheaper, out of pocket costs on exchange plans tend to be higher. A survey by found the deductibles on the exchange plans were 42 percent higher than employer based policies. But now, insurers say Obamacare consumers can expect to experience sticker shock from both premiums and deductibles.

    --More and more clients of mine find they are getting their plans cancelled, just to see the sky high prices of Obamacare. Damn, no wonder most Americans aren't happy with the law. Good job Obama.....good job. My mom asked me to remove her Obama 2012 sticker from her car yesterday.....she was disappointed the sky high prices of Obamacare haven't gone down since January. It's still high as hell, and her coworkers, even with subsidies, HATE the sky high prices. Nice.....very nice. I'm sure Obama's approval ratings won't be at George W Bush levels for much longer. When the rates raise next year, we will ALL be grateful Obama forced Americans to have health insurance, even if they can barely take care of their household expenses and debts as it is.

    Obama gave a lot of leeway to states that went full legal by giving them avenues to spend their tax revenues. He hasn't gone after those states which is why the law suite was enacted. The states that only have medical marijuana are in a grey area and some producers have sketchy practices and no states sanction. Obama will not use his powers to stop all out fed raids because of reactions like this from Congress but at least with full state legality and regulation, he can hide behind states rights and not risk flagrant lawsuits that seem to not be concerned about states rights.

    The DEA is doing what they must do under the law enacted by congress, and a full presidential waver is dangerous ground without congressional support or a full state vote for legality, rather then those halfhearted votes to only allow it for Medical purposes which can mean anything and still involves the fed. We also know that many justice agencies act unilaterally. How about we stop throwing stones at a dude who doesn't want to go beyond the scope of his job which he was hired to do. He's playing with fire enough letting the states breath with full legality.

    Obama pledged to let states make up their own minds on medical marijuana when he was running for prez in 2007, and even fight to legalize medical weed nationwide if there was demand for it. He's backtracked on both and is cracking down on medical farms on levels the same as GW or higher. That's a disgraceful record for a man who said what he said in 2007, and one of the reasons people don't respect him as they used to.

    And meanwhile, his poll numbers will continue to sink, as he's let down people over and over again during his sub-par 2nd term. Very avg to below avg president.

    Obama the lying fraud has waged the biggest war against marijuana, more then any other president in history. Larger a war then even GEORGE W BUSH has waged. In all seriousness, as a Black man, why do so many of ya'll praise this bitch made nigga? For being a half cracka so called first Black president??? LOL sad video but it shows Republicans and Obama have more in common on marijuana then almost any other issue....

    Obamacare Seen As Making Coverage Worse For Some: Poll

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans who already have health insurance are blaming President Barack Obama's health care overhaul for their rising premiums and deductibles, and overall 3 in 4 say the rollout of coverage for the uninsured has gone poorly.

    An Associated Press-GfK poll finds that health care remains politically charged going into next year's congressional elections. Keeping the refurbished website running smoothly is just one of Obama's challenges, maybe not the biggest.

    The poll found a striking level of unease about the law among people who have health insurance and aren't looking for government help. Those are the 85 percent of Americans who the White House says don't have to be worried about the president's historic push to expand coverage for the uninsured.

    In the survey, nearly half of those with job-based or other private coverage say their policies will be changing next year — mostly for the worse. Nearly 4 in 5 (77 percent) blame the changes on the Affordable Care Act, even though the trend toward leaner coverage predates the law's passage.

    Sixty-nine percent say their premiums will be going up, while 59 percent say annual deductibles or copayments are increasing.

    maybe im wrong, but werent those plans canceled cuz they were so awful and pointlessly expensive? didnt the insurance companies have 3 years to make their plans up to par? so wouldnt it be the fault of the insurance companies that those people are losing insurance?

    Some of them were, there were some substandard plans as well as plans that should have long been discontinued.

    It is the insurance companies, they caught one of them jacking up prices under the guise to out price their competitors. They did this because they figured the first people to sign up would be the sick and higher prices would deter these sick people from signing up with them. They basically were trying to push sick people off on the competition.

    That's just one of the schemes they had time to concoct. There are quite a few others.

    People getting too wrapped up in politics. The damn law isn't even in full effect and won't be for at least another month. Effectiveness of the law won't be able to be quantified until at least 2016-2017 after the entire law has been in effect more than a year.

    Obama committed consumer fraud getting this law to pass. He said if we liked our plan we could keep it. PERIOD. Stop trying to cover up the lie cuz even Democrats are saying Obama was wrong. Millions upon millions of people are getting their plans cancelled just to see the palm tree sky high prices of Obamacare, prices the middle class and poor just can't afford. WORSE, the piece of shit govt will fine the uninsured who do not want to pay the sky high premiums and deductibles of Obamacare starting next year. $95 bucks the first year, then $300 plus, and more for every year that goes on. What the fuck kind of bullshit is this??

    Wait till the employer mandates kick in next year, MANY sources state that up to 100 million or more people will then look at their plans being cancelled just to see the sky high prices me and many others are seeing.

    I gotta wait till 2016-2017 to see if this piece of shit law will be successful? FUCK THAT, I know what I see now and I ain't feeling it. So are most Americans who now despise Obama the con artist and the UNaffordable Care Act. As Bill Clinton said, parts of the law have to change cuz it sucks right now and most people around the nation agree with me. PERIOD.
