Pebble, if you know by doctor, and most likely you don't he will tell you he was not making money under Obamacare. You pretend you are a "know it all on all subjects." By the way, my doctor was the person who got an award that was written in the Jersey Journal several months. I don't make it a practice of using someone's name unless they are a politician. But if you have the energy and go back several months you will find an article about him.

yes, $3,200 is a lot but you don't know how much this person makes. i know people, before obamacare, could not even get coverage with cancer or other pre-exising conditions.


It is obvious, it is not a lot or he would not have to sell his home in order to pay $3,200 monthy. I do feel for people without insurance. That is why states covered them with Medicaid. Some people are not getting insurance, they are just paying the fine because they cannot afford even the cheapest plan. My doctor who is in his early 60s closed his practice due to Obamacare. He is now working for an insurance company as a visiting doctor for homebound patients. I went to him for 20 plus years.

Your doctor is in his 60's. He didn't close practice because of Obamacare. That's a beyond stupid statement.

Under Obamacare, the federal government has been spending less money on healthcare while the number of insured people have gone up.

I thought Republicans wanted government spending to go down? Oh, right... A black guy proposed it and put it in place...


My deductible has gone from $500 to $3200 in the past 4-5 yrs.Now I basically have insurance just for major issues


You've chosen a high deductible policy. That is called making a choice. If you had mad a different choice, your deductible would be lower.


Not true. While I could have selected a smaller deductible I am on the same plan I had previously. Had I chose the other plan with a smaller deductible I would have spent even more on higher premiums. In addition after the Ahca my firm has decided it is cost effective to insure us themselves. This was not the case under the prior system

Both have the following in common: Often the people using the service aren't paying the bill and the resulting lack of price discovery. With our current system, YOU are not the customer.. the insurance company or the government (i.e. Medicare is).

If you want to see an area in medical service where you see a trend of declining prices and / or improved service, look at services NOT covered by insurance.

And NJ is #1 in the country in those two categories. Also in cost of road repair. NJ just raised it's gas tax so that it will now lose revenue from NY and PA drivers, but it's never enough for people on this board. Just wait for the next Gov to raise property taxes.

Don't you know that most Republicans only care about you getting the medical attention you need until you're born? Once you're our of the womb it would be a nightmare for the government to meddle in your health care.

Boy... Trump has been in office for only 4 weeks??? Seems like years, why just two weeks ago Trump did call in the Big Pharma CEOs and gave them fair warning to get their pricing together... Big Pharma is on the to-do-list.

I am actually surprised that so many people are surprised that a ton of young people (and many not so young) chose to not sign up for ACA. Have people forgotten how young people think?? Very few are concerned with the possibility of medical issues, and for those faced with the choice of expensive medical insurance or a paltry penalty for ignoring the individual mandate provision, well... the math was simple.

I actually know people who have lost jobs and have purposely chosen NOT to sign up for an ACA plan because the individual mandate penalty was a pittance and they could save thousands by just paying the penalty. Even for 2016, the penalty is a paltry $695, which is about a month of coverage for some plans. Lots of people will roll the dice and do without the insurance. Obamacare never had a chance to succeed given how it was structured: the individual mandate penalty was too low, the restrictions on the insurance companies went against all logic and actuarial tables, and the end result was always going to be what we are seeing: insurance companies bailing on the markets, massive losses, and a system bound to implode.

"UnitedHealth Group, the parent company, warned in November it was considering quitting most marketplaces because of escalating losses on the Obamacare plans. The company on Tuesday said it lost $475 million last year from the marketplace plans and was on target to lose $650 million in 2016."

Could N.J. lose one of its Obamacare insurers?

By Kathleen O'Brien | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
on April 28, 2016 at 1:21 PM, updated April 28, 2016 at 1:23 PM

Insurance giant UnitedHealthcare roiled the political landscape recently when it revealed it will stop selling policies through the federal government website in all but "a handful" of states.

Such policies - in most cases heavily subsided - are a cornerstone of the Affordable Care Act, now in its third full year.

UnitedHealthCare has declined to say whether it will remain in New Jersey's ACA marketplace, where it operates under the name of a subsidiary, Oxford Health.

State insurance regulators in 26 other states have stated they've been notified by United that it will be pulling out of their marketplaces in 2017. Officials in New York, Nevada and Virginia say the company will be staying in their states.

I'm glad the Court decided the way it did. I do like the dissent's line about "interpretive jiggery pokery" though.

I'm just waiting for Scalia to call the President "Odumba" in one of his opinions.

The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that President Obama’s health care law may provide nationwide tax subsidies to help poor and middle-class people buy health insurance.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote the majority opinion in the 6-to-3 decision. The court’s three most conservative members — Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. — dissented.

The case concerned a central part of the Affordable Care Act, Mr. Obama’s signature legislative achievement. The law created marketplaces, known as exchanges, to allow people who lack insurance to shop for individual health plans.

Resized Image


Some states set up their own exchanges, but about three dozen allowed the federal government to step in to run them. Across the nation, about 85 percent of customers using the exchanges qualify for subsidies to help pay for coverage, based on their income.

Despite all the issues and complaints at the moment, I think history will look kindly on Obamacare, and whatever form it takes over time.

Regardless, what I find most interesting and fascinating about this Supreme Court is the way that Chief Justice Roberts is settling into his position and role. He seems to be a bit hard to predict, and I actually like that. I think it shows creative thinking and a willingness to set aside ideology in favor of jurisprudence. I do wonder how GWB feels about his pick, though.
you mean the supreme socialist court of the united states upheld obamacare subsidies for the poor?
