Deductibles are increasing dramatically and still premium costs are increasing at 20% to 100% for business owners and some individuals who cannot partake in the “government welfare program” of subsidies.
Consider the shock of being forced to increase your deductible to $5,000 or more. A relative recently spent 5 days in the hospital and the retail bill is $22,500!! You check out and they hand you your portion of the bill, you now owe the hospital $5,000 or more likely $6,350 with coinsurance.
Are we getting the message yet?
