I just found out today that our company will not be able to dodge the Obamacare mandates. Even though we will not see a significant premium increase, our out-of-pocket expenses were not so lucky. What I find interesting is if anyone enrolls in the silver or bronze plan, that person has to have a payroll deduction made into a savings account so the physician can be paid for the visit. What a farce.

Lost my insurance, but I did get to sign up for a much worse plan and pay twice as much. My wife lost her "girl" doctor of over 20 years and just found out her dermatologist is not available either. In fact, finding a doctor that will take our plan has proven to be extremely difficult. Not happy at all. Dopey people are running this country into the ground.

So why not find a different plan, David?

Jeremy, the idea is work on reducing the premiums so that can be documented in the newspaper (sounds like a winner to the public) but hike the deductibles and up the copay. The mandate specifically states what the companies must offer. As a result, less policies, which are garbage as compared to what I once had, are offered at even higher prices to most people. IMHO, most would be better off paying the fine and buying supplemental insurance. It's a no win for the majority of people who had good insurance.
