Perfectly fine. Pretty much better than what exists today.

My premiums went through the roof. I would imagine it happened to most of the working class the same way.

A few hundred dollars a month for a family plan and $1000-$2000 deductibles.

Today you could buy a house with your premium and deductibles are $6000 minimum with most $10000 or greater.

I had a Cadillac plan. Now it sucks and it’s 4 times more expensive.

Much better. You likely wouldn't believe how much better it was.

re: What was health insurance like pre Obama care?
Since it is eliminated the option for major medical care plans, telling us what products we can buy, it was $34 a month before Obama and $220 a month after.

A 650% increase. An extra $2,232 a year.

Government can't create wealth. They can only Rob Peter to pay Paul.

Yes Obamacare didn’t actually change anything. Why lie to yourself?

Insurance companies could deny you for a pre existing condition before it. “Oh you are a cancer survivor? Lol good luck”

re: What was health insurance like pre Obama care?
My insurance was great. It was affordable enough that my employer paid for half the premium and I only had $20 copay and a low deductible. It was fantastic insurance. Not so much anymore. Employer doesn't pay any portion and the Copays and deductibles are through the roof.

Just like unlimited student loans backed by the government, the full ramifications of Obamacare haven’t been felt yet.

The federal government backing 100% of all medical procedures for anyone regardless of need or options is going to balloon healthcare wildly out of control and dilute it extremely. In a decade or so they’ll all be crying about the costs of healthcare and the shitty performance you get from it, and it’ll be all their fault.

re: What was health insurance like pre Obama care?
I found an old pay stub for my first job out of college. They covered health insurance as a benefit. My copay was $10 and my yearly deductible was $500.

90\10 cost split after hitting the deductible. I almost started crying when I realize I'm up to about 8k a year for the same plan basically.

it was connected to employment, which worked at the time but is an outdated idea and needs to be done away with

Could. Or they may have just charged you a more appropriate premium. Or you could have gotten on a group plan where pre-ex doesn’t exist.

Premiums went way up for most and health insurance provided less.


We own a small business. We had a family policy through BC/BS prior to Obamacare. It was their 'Gold' policy and cost us $500/month for family coverage with a $500 deductible with copays.

In Obama's last year in office and my son's last year of high school, the same BC/BS policy was going to cost us $2000/month with a $5000 deductible with copays. This expense forced me to leave our business and get a corporate job that provided benefits. My wife and her sister now run the business.

Every small business owner that we know wouldn't be able to do what they do without a spouse having benefits from another source.
