We pay our huge premiums and any OOP's and share risks with the others in our particular plan, along with the insurance company. This is the nature of insurance. No one 'picks our tab', unless they pay in more and take out less than us. Again the nature of insurance.

Would you pissed if you were paying a $10000 a year in premiums with a $6000 hsa compatible deductible.

Now having to pay $14000 a year (family of 4) with a $6000 deductible that's no longer considered hsa compatible?


That's a double whammy with us

Or we could pay the same $10000 a year and get hit with the $12700 deductible.

So we pay more and get nothing more than our previously insurance.

I ask all other Aca supporters. Who's paying a lot more for the same services?

What if I didn't lose it, and pay less?

My employer-sponsored plan's 2014 premiums are slightly less than my 2013 premiums, my deductible dropped by $700 and my co-insurance went from 70/30 to 80/20. Same doctors, same insurer. My employer has offered high-quality coverage all the years I've worked for them (over 10), and the plan is already a qualified health plan, so next year's employer mandate isn't going to make them have to offer more than what they already do.

I had already opted in the past few years to have a high-deductible plan to keep my premiums low, as my family doesn't utilize much in medical care and our yearly out-of-pocket is pretty low. This qualified me for an HSA that my employer contributes to.

I pay slightly more starting Jan. 1st because I switched to a different company. My new insurance policy is much better than the old one and the deductibles are less. I have better coverage than before so I don't mind paying a little more. I was rejected by this company in the past because I had a "pre-existing medical condition." Now for the first time I am eligible.

I have yet to see a cable or satellite package that let you pick and choose each individual channel you want, please let me know if you know of any company that does that.
Actually, some cable companies give you a basic package, and then you can pay for certain cable channels that you want. You may not be able to ONLY have the channels that you want and only pay for them, but yes, there is indeed the option to pick some of the channels that you want, you pay for those, while you keep a basic package.

Do you have something against people working and being compensated for it?

I'll act all conservativey and say, "Get a good job with good health benefits". It's what my super-conservative father always advised me about my future when I was growing up.
