For too long the third party payment system has come between you and the care you deserve at a price you can afford. The insurance industry has spent decades building barriers to price transparency and ensuring you are in the dark on what your care actually costs.
What About Obamacare – Isn’t That Going To Fix All This?
The million dollar question asked at kitchen tables all over America is; what’s Obamacare going to cost my family? The short answer is that it’s too soon to tell. The plan was passed with 2,100 pages and it’s estimated that another 11,000 pages of administrative regulations has been added. One thing is certain, health care as we know it is changing forever.
Obamacare is built on a couple concepts; first you can chose the level of coverage for you or your family. These levels are broken down into Platinum -Gold – Silver – Bronze. The Bronze is the most affordable but it comes with higher deductibles and out of pocket co-pays. The plans cost to you after subsidies, deductibles and c0-pays are computed based on your annual income.
Doesn’t High Deductibles and High Co-Pays Go Away Under Obamacare?
Actually for most families to keep health premiums affordable a high deductible and high co-pay plan may be the only option. Most Bronze plans come with a $4000 deductible before the insurance portion kicks in and you’ll be paying for 40% of each visit after the plan’s deductible is met. The total out of pocket could run you $12,000 per year. Each family and individual plan is different and everything depends on your age and you annual income but one this is sure, health care is getting more expensive. Below is a break down of a Silver plan with estimated out of pocket expenses and how your annual income will effect your premiums.
