The evidence continues to roll in that ObamaCare is a typical federal government program: one that makes worse what it purported to “fix.”
From the DC Caller:
American workers are feeling the brunt of higher premiums and out-of-pocket costs from their employer health plans, according to a new report released Wednesday.
In the first year that the health care law’s regulations and coverage are active, 86 percent of workers expect their personal medical costs to increase, according to the annual Aflac WorkForces Report, which has studied the landscape of employer-provided health coverage since Obamacare was passed in 2010.
That’s in line with employers’ projections as well. In 2013, 56 percent of companies increased their employees’ share of health care premiums or co-pays; another 59 percent plan to do the same by the end of 2014.
Employers and insurance companies have both markedly shifted towards a new model where consumers pay higher out-of-pocket costs every time they actually use health services — in addition to rising premiums.
Thanks President Obama, Democrats and gutless “Republicans” for higher costs, less service and more anxiety.
