Is the ACA Affordable for You?

The affordability of the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, for Nebraskans and their fellow Americans is an issue for most. Around the country insurance companies have been bracing their customers for further rate shock.

A new study from the University of Minnesota predicts that the worst is yet to come with costs projected to outpace subsidies over the long-term and the most damaging price spike set for 2017.

The Manhattan Institute has updated its interactive ObamaCare Impact map. The map displays the premiums in the individual market before ObamaCare and current ObamaCare rates.

A 40 year old man in Cherry County has seen a 93% increase. 27 year old women have seen a 102% increase. These increases and increases down the road are simple unaffordable.

Not only is ObamaCare unaffordable for Americans, but we are left with fewer choices in doctors, networks, and more.

Added to the pile is the Obama Administration’s refusal to acknowledge the failures. Remember the website? Now the IRS is contacting people to verify subsidies. There are issues throughout. Every step of the way in the implementation of Obamacare there has been chaos, confusion, incompetence and mismanagement. This is what happens when a massive federal bureaucracy ventures far outside its core responsibilities.

No extension or delay will fix the law. What we need is a patient-centered system. We need a system that provides better health to more people at a lower cost on a continuous basis.
