I was just wondering what all of you guys, and the people that you know are doing with the $2,500.00 that you are saving a year now that the ACA has kicked in??

The way I see it is this.
I pay about $90.00/week for my healthcare , and it is the best I have ever had in my life. After my savings of $2,500 per year i will now only be paying $48.00 per week Woo-hoo.

I can't wait to start spending all of this extra money.
Does anyone know when the savings will actually kick in?

Think about it......

I should be saving about $50 a month. My new plan will cost 350 vs my 400 a month non major medical discount/partial reimbursement I now have. This is as opposed to 1400 a month for my wife and I that we simply could not afford. We are both self employed and business owners. To those losing their plans I'm sorry but the reason you lost them is your carrier "decided" not to abide by the governments coverage. I'm really tired of hearing everyone whine about their coverage. Where was the whining when I couldn't get coverage. The pendulum swings and now it swings my way. Finally!

I'll also say this, it's time to outlaw healthcare for profit. Single payer system, Medicare for all. Just like the rest of the world. We all pay into it according to our incomes. If you make enough money that you wanna spend extra to get what your perception is a better care than so be it. Otherwise the guy sweeping the floor gets the same care he paid for as the guy who runs the company. And for those that wanna cry socialism. Go right ahead. If there was a social conscience in this country we wouldn't be in the mess we are in.

I will be spending it on the higher cost of every copay, higher deductible, uncovered test, uncovered procedure, and uncovered prescription.

Well , if that's the case , the way you see it , why doesn't the government officials have to abide by ACA also ??? If it is good enough for us , why not them ? Also , no offense , but this is America , not North Korea . If you go to the ER and you cant pay , you still get treated , and the tax payers pay for it , now we have the ACA , and the tax payers pay for it . Unless the young people are smart enough to run from it.... Then hopefully it fails before its too late . PERIOD. Have a nice day !:) cheers

The same reason that every other person who receives it as a benefit thru work isn't permitted to apply for it. It wasn't designed as a substitute for employer paid care, it was designed for employees of corporations who are too cheap to provide coverage for their employees.

It's funny how conservatives never think such a situation could ever happen to them...until it does. Then they ride around on scooters and hold signs warning the gov't to keep their hands off of Medicare. :ltr:

Actually, I think it's a cluster, but better than we had. I'm with DirtyDan. Provide everyone with some basic level of care and let people buy additional insurance if they wish to have coverage for less common, more expensive illnesses. If you don't have coverage and end up with a disease not covered, then that's no one creating a "death panel." At that point the gov't could provide pain medicine if necessary.

But that has problems too. We'd probably put about 20% of our workforce who provide useless admin functions out of work.

So I ran the actual, real world, numbers for health care for my wife and I. I have been forced onto Medicare since I am eligible, thus my employer provided coverage is now just a supplemental plan. My monthly costs are -$75 compared to before I got to be eligible for Medicare. That means I am out of pocket about $900 per year compared to before I got these savings. I must say that I really appreciate losing partial payment for my heart condition maintenance drugs and having to submit every claim to both Medicare and Blue Cross before I can find out what I really owe to doctors and hospitals. At least I don't need to worry about where to spend that $2500 since I am in the hole by $900 plus my added drug costs.

ACA is just an extension of welfare. The hard working work harder and get less. It is ridiculous we have to work out asses off to support those not willing to take care of themselves.

You don't understand the law. It is the polar opposite of welfare. It not only encourages people to be responsible and buy an insurance policy, it mandates it. Such "personal responsibility" used to be championed by conservative types before the black guy said he liked the idea too.
