Oh heck yeah, now they can charge $315 for a plan that used to be $115.They wrote it themselves, for themselves.
I'm a little, wtf, last year I had a $115 a month plan with a $3500 deductible. Come January 1, I will pay $315 a month for a plan with a $6750 deductible. If I made $25,000 a year, this plan would cost me $115 a month. The only "improvement" in coverage is now I'm covered for maternity. In the past that was an option that added $100 a month to the premium.
So.... I'm super confused how this is helping more or even helping someone with less money, as they could have had a $115 a month plan without a government subsidy. Lest we bring up the uninsurable, our state had a pool that insured high risk at high, but not "out of reach" premiums - My friend with diabetes used this- her premium was like $400-$500 a month.
It seems like a field day for insurers who are feed at the government trough and have an excuse to raise everyone's rates.
And the lack of competition in my state is not comforting.
