RunInRed 12,159 Posted December 19, 2014 Share Posted December 19, 2014 Do the Obamacare haters remember how they screamed at the top of their lungs how premiums for employer-provided plans would sky rocket in 2015? Well, the 2015 open enrollment season is upon us and the verdict is in ... and the predicted doom and gloom is nowhere to be found. Personally, my premium increased a whopping $15 (or approximately 3.5%) a month. And my plan actually provides more coverage and better deductibles than prior years. And I'm not the only one experiencing only modest premium increases. So just like death panels and rationed care, all the scare tactics and hyperbole have proven to be nonsense. Shocker. Of course, rises of 3 or 4 percent per year are still nothing to sneeze at, but in the years before Obamacare took effect, most would have been giddy to have their family's yearly premium increases rise by only 3 or 4 percent instead of the more typical triple+ that.
