My health care premiums just increased by $3.000.00 a year to a total of $18,500.00 for 2 people. In order for health insurance companies to do these things mentioned, such as keeping adult children on parents' policy longer, etc., people who already have health care are having their health care premiums soar to pay for those who don't have it. No one said that my premiums would skyrocket.
My elderly aunt who is on Medicare recently went for her yearly eye exam and an ear cleaning procedure. She was told that she would now have to pay for these visits herself. Also, at the pharmacy, she was told that a certain type of prescription medication that she has been on is no longer covered.
This is how health care reform is already helping me.
