    • We have adequate insurance through my husband’s work. When he retires in a year and a half, he’ll be eligible for medicare and we’ll buy a supplement plan for him. I, on the other hand, will be 10 years away from medicare so I’ll have to buy my own insurance or hope that it’s available through my employer. Getting a little nervous over that.

    • I have health insurance through my company and the premiums keep going up and up.  This year we switched to a High Deductible plan with Blue Cross/ Blue Shield since we don’t go to the doctor much anyways.  Unfortunately we have had to take my son to different doctors for different things this year and it’s been pretty $$$.

      I am sure the premiums will go up again next year though.  I haven’t seen any changes with the new law yet.

    • We have our health insurance through hubby’s job.  Premiums are going up of course.  

      And we’ve always had a sort of mid-level deductible.  Now, that is not an option.  Not sure the higher dedutible is an option for hubby, since he sees the pain doc once a month.  I wish we could take a low deductible on him and a high one on me, but it doesn’t seem to work that way.

    • I’ve been wondering. I’ve heard stories of people who are being cancelled because their insurance plan doesn’t comply with the new law and then the policies that do are really expensive. We’ve always had just basic Kaiser so I don’t know for sure if we’ll see major changes. I do know from the business manager at my husband’s work, that the plan I have now with Kaiser will be going up after open enrollment in May.

      There’s also talk at our hospital that people are able to see their primary care doctor but then if they have to be referred to a specialist they are unable to find doctors covered under their insurance. Also, some of the doctors haven’t been approved to work out of the hospital. People are being flown to Honolulu and the cost of that is not covered in many cases.

    • I can only vouch for Pennsylvania, which still seems to have their insurance plans in place.  I do not believe in Obamacare, feel it will end up destroying much of the United States and therefore making people more and more dependent on the government.

      A very sad state of affairs!!heartbreakfrown

    • I agree.  I think this is all going to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back and finally bankrupts this country completely.
