Affordable Care Act increases rates for some
Quotes for new policies see some plans double in rate
I am a 59-year-old male in good health. [“While political war rages, historic part of health law starts,” page one, Oct. 1.] I have a family of five and currently have a high deductible health plan in conjunction with a Health Savings Account.
I just received quotations for new policies and my rates have effectively doubled. I will now have to pay in excess of $20,000 per year before receiving any benefits.
I have previously been a supporter of Obamacare, but for those who maintained that rates would not be changed, they are simply wrong. Obamacare will cost me $10,000 per year in additional medical costs. It should be repealed.
