A pamphlet came today that describes some of the changes to our health insurance plan. What a surprise! They won't offer our plan next year, but they will offer a "comparable" plan for only the same cost in premiums that we pay for our mortgage. And of course, "out of pocket" costs increased to $13,700. Prescriptions and doctor visit "co-pays" jump as well.
All in all, it makes more financial sense for us to dump the health insurance plans and just pay when we need to visit a doctor, We'll save by just paying the additional tax (which isn't a tax, except that it is a tax). But remember: if you like your plan, you can keep your plan - and if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. And Obama isn't a liar.
