On the heels of reports of skyrocketing costs, with some states soaring over 100 percent, More bad news for Obamacare, Obama’s signature legislative “achievement” comes in on the first day of open enrollment.
According to a new study by the market research group, GfK shows that 50 percent of Obamacare enrollees are avoiding doctor visits because of surging health care costs.
Additionally, over one-third (36%) of Obamacare customers are forced to save money by avoiding going to the doctor even when they are sick, according to the study, with more women suffering from the higher costs than men (43% to 28%).
“Even before the news broke that the cost of mid-range health insurance from the Affordable Care Act exchanges will rise about 25%, millions of Obamacare customers were already skipping doctor visits to save money,” the study said. “With mid-level exchange premiums set to rise about 25%, more cutbacks in care seem likely.”
But wait! Weren’t we promised ad nauseam by Democrats that health care costs somehow would be lowered 2,700-page page law?
So , as Democrats boast about more people being “covered,” the question that is begging to be asked is, “Covered with what?” If you can’t use the “insurance,” exactly what good is it, again?
