I'm still waiting for that annual $2500 savings that Obama repeatedly promised we'd all get once the Democratics rammed through Obamacare. Looks like I'll have to wait a while longer:
Oregon officials announced final decisions for 2017 individual and small employer health insurance rates Thursday.
In the individual market, the division’s final rate decisions range from an average rate increase of 9.8 percent to an average rate increase of 32 percent, depending on the insurance company.
Providence gets an increase of just over 24% (or just under 25%, depending on how you look at it).
Moda gets a 29.3% increase (or nearly 30%).
Gotta pay off the bills for those park and arena naming rights somehow.
HealthNet's rates will increase by 10%.
Other insurance providers, such as Kaiser, were not cited in yesterday's announcement, nor were out-of-pocket and deductible increases. But remember, Citizen, you are required by federal law to purchase health insurance coverage.
It's for your own good, and it will reduce costs.
