    Obamacare: Is a $2,000 deductible 'affordable?'

    Obamacare: Is a $2,000 deductible 'affordable?' - Jun. 13, 2013

    Participants may have different views on whether Obamacare plans are affordable.
    States are starting to roll out details about the exchanges, providing a look at just how affordable coverage under the Affordable Care Act will be. Some potential participants may be surprised at the figures: $2,000 deductibles, $45 primary care visit co-pays, and $250 emergency room tabs.

    Those are just some of the charges enrollees will incur in a silver-level plan in California, which recently unveiled an overview of the benefits and charges associated with its exchange. That's on top of the $321 average monthly premium.
    So when does the "Affordable" part of the Affordable Care Act kick in? High deductibles and high co-pays were not what Obama sold us.

    Ironically, that would be more expensive for the individual holders than my high deductible policy that is no longer allowed to be issued.

    So, to put it in perspective, an average healthy person who sees the doctor twice a year will pay.... $1,500 per visit. Bargain!

    Or just shell out the penalty and pocket the difference.

    You're the ones always demanding that extremely high deductible plans meet the requirements
    News flash: your cheap as **** plan with a $10,000 deductible isn't health insurance.

    I think you're missing the entire concept of health insurance.

    It's insurance. You can't just look at a single year and say "see you're over paying!" Because then you overlook that one year where you needed emergency surgery with a short stay in the ICU, where you shelled out a few thousand but didn't have to pay the other hundred thousand dollars of your bill. Do you really not understand that or are you being intentionally thick headed?

    ALL insurance from auto to health is 'worthless' until a major accident or major illness/injury. Then it can be priceless.

    medicare for all would have been so much better than this. by the time they dropped the public option from consideration, i was hoping that the bill would be defeated.

    If this law wasn't so horrible, not to mention unconstitutional, it would almost be funny. Couple this with the hoards of illegals (soon to be legal democrats) that will get health care for free, and you can watch the USA become Greece in a matter of months, if not weeks.
