Well, the ACA does need help, I can testify to that.
My spouse has had insurance through Uncle Sam for 2.5 years now.
2015 wasn't too bad for premium and deductible costs.
2016 was very good, a $120.00 monthly premium and lab work and most prescriptions covered.
2017, premiums are now $170.00 monthly, no lab work is covered at all, she must pay a $2,600.00 deductible before anything kicks in. Her doctor wanted her to take injections to lower her blood sugar, her cost $300.00 plus the injection tips. Her insurance changed that because her insurance at the beginning of 2017 paid for Januvia. Her cost $50.00.
Something happened in March 2017, insurance won't cover Januvia unless she pays the $2,600. deductible, and then they'll only pay $105.00, she'd have to pay $250.00.
With her blood sugar on the rise, she's been chowing lightly in the last 2 months. Fruits, berries, veggies, and portioning her meals. She's working on it.
I heard a few days ago they, the Repubs want to make sick people pay more.
I don't think they have mainstream Americans in their hearts, I think they're out to undo everything democrats and liberals have been fighting for since the beginning of time, that really angers me.
What else angers me is that these insurance companies have lengthy fine print in the details of coverage, you need to be an attorney to decipher what's covered and what's not.
