Medical is cheaper? NOT FOR ME AND MINE!
Our medical bills reached $6,400 this year. It would be still going up if that wasn’t the annual out-of-pocket maximum. Add the $2,600 in plan costs and my medical costs have sky rocketed over a 800% in 2 years.
By comparison, under Kaiser in CA I was spending roughly $1000 per year – never more than that and usually quite a bit less. This includes the few rare occasions we had to go through the emergency room on a weekend and spend $100. Even still, I never saw a $1000 charge… ever.
Now I have a single bill that is over $1000. And that’s somehow supposed to be normal.
Yeah, Obamacare is doing wonders for me. Thanks, Obama.
