Experts: New Health Rules Show Obamacare Will Raise Costs

The federal government has issued a series of sweeping new rules and regulations surrounding Obamacare — benefits that health-industry experts fear could end up costing Americans more.

The proposed regulations, revealed Tuesday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Department of Health and Human Services, will begin in 2014. They mandate:

    Health insurance companies will be prohibited from discriminating against individuals because of a pre-existing or chronic condition;

    Insurers will only be allowed to vary their premiums within limits, with rates being based on age, tobacco use, family size, and geography;

    They will also prohibited from denying coverage or charging higher premiums based on an enrollee’s current or past health problems, their sex, their job or the industry they work in;

    People for whom coverage is unaffordable, and young adults, will have access to a catastrophic coverage plan;
    Policies and standards spelling out essential health coverage benefits are being set to give states more flexibility to implement Obamacare. They will allow consumers to be able to compare health plans. Standards for Medicaid benefits are also being established; Read more....


  1. obama = idiot and chief

  2. Boy if Mitt were in charge he shure would clean up this mess.

    And John 2:16 said: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Amen.

  3. How can this be when Obama told us this would save health care? Did you read all 2600 pages or are you assuming this on your own. Lord Obama would never tell a lie to us little people. Go back and check, you must be missing something.

  4. The State is my shepherd. I shall not want. It makes me lie down in federally owned pastures. It leads me beside quite waters in banned fishing and hunting areas. It restores my soul through its control. It guides me in the path of dependency for its namesake. Even though our Nation plunges into the valley of the shadow debt I shall fear no evil! For Barack will be with me. The Affordable Care Act and food stamps, they comfort me. You prepare a table of Michelle Obama approved foods before me in the presence of my Conservative and Libertarian enemies. You anoint my head with hemp oil. My government regulated 16-ounce cup overflows. Surely mediocrity and an entitlement mentality will follow me all the days of my life. And I will dwell in a low-rent HUD home forever and ever.
