i don't know if this is typical or not but--
my pal has been retired for the last decade --previously he had coverage of about 90% paid with a 10% out of pocket--
october 1 this changed to 20% out of his pocket and a bunch of other things they paid for now are not included in the policy.
his "new obama policy" now forces him to change his primary care Dr to one 120 miles away- this is not only a PITA but it also costs much more as big city drs charge much more than his local RFD dr does.
we were trying to figure out how much it has went up with all the hidden little costs-- best we can tell about 40% or more in extra costs.
and about this time he has had to go to the ICU for an infection and has had two trips to surgery-- so he is looking at big big $$$ out his pocket thanks to obama care--
obama care came along just in time to really bite him on the kazoo--
