And now there are two . . .
As the Obamacrap imposed 9/23 deadline for change in the way children obtain health insurance approaches we now have two health insurance companies that are willing to play the game.
At least for now . . .
Blue Cross of Georgia will introduce new plans and rates in a few days. They will have only one plan for children who want stand alone coverage or who are otherwise uninsurable.
As of now, Kaiser will offer a full array of plans for children and final rate after the underwriting review is yet to be determined.
Starting rates may be favorable but I would not expect final rates (after underwriting) to be pleasant. What we have seen from other carriers for dependent child rates is enough to make your hair stand on end. Final (underwritten) rates will easily go north of $500 per month for a $2500 deductible copay plan.
Parents who want to include their children on their plan will have to sell an organ to pay the premium.
HHS Secretary Shebullshits can try to shift the blame but everyone in Washington who created this mess now have to own it. This is what happens when you put folks in charge who have no real world experience and no clue. November elections can't come soon enough.
