Ohio rates, services to rise under health law



Published: Thu, August 1, 2013 @ 2:40 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Health insurance rates in Ohio will rise an average of 18 percent for small businesses and 41 percent for individuals participating in the new marketplaces created by the federal health care law, state insurance officials said today.

The details were the first glimpse of what Ohioans could see should they purchase private insurance in the exchanges created by President Barack Obama’s health care law.

The increases in rates are partly due to consumers receiving more benefits under the plans than previously available.

Individuals can get private health insurance, subsidized by the federal government, through the exchange. Open enrollment starts Oct. 1, and coverage takes effect in January.

Republican Gov. John Kasich chose to let Washington operate the exchange, instead of having the state set up its own

The Affordable Care Act "will reduce health care costs and make coverage more affordable for all Americans." So said/says the White House website. No one lied, did they? (Ref: http://www.whitehouse.gov/economy/ref..., first paragraph.)

The whole thing is screwed up and nuts. They turned a crappy system into a crappier system.

No use in complaining about it. The people spoke in 2008 and 2012. They wanted the Prez and now this ACA will continue to be phased in.

The crappy system could have been worked on by responsible people and it could have been improved on.

But again, the people spoke in 2008 and 2012. Only...There Ain't No Free Lunch!
