Obamacare was supposed to help people. Or so the Democratic Party told us, anyway. A friend who shared this article with me writes: "Thanks for the $70 premium raise ( that will increase even more this year). Thanks for the $30 price increase on my insulin. I cannot wait to see how much the insulin pump supplies will be."
People in the High-Risk Pools are being harmed by Obamacare's increased costs, too. The article from February 13, 2013 Feds Increase Costs to High-Risk Pool Members states the following:
"The Obama administration has increased costs for about 38,000 people
enrolled in high-risk insurance pools run under the federal health law
to prevent the program from running out of money."
"Under the changes which took effect Jan. 1, enrollees in
federally-administered plans saw their maximum out-of-pocket spending
limit increase from $4,000 to $6,250, according to a Jan. 31 report
by CMS. Enrollees also began being required to order medicines to treat
chronic illnesses by mail order after the second prescription refill."
