I believe stories of increased premiums due to health reform are mostly just propaganda. Many old insurance policies included clauses that are strictly against the law under the Affordable Care Act. This includes the insurers ability to exclude some coverage. The new policies are more comprehensive and therefore some peoples cost went up.
Anytime a company increases premiums it always has something to do with a law or a reform being increased in order to push that premium. These are not just stories but testimonies from people who have had to deal with this before. Even with the new health care act being out many people will still face an increase in premiums.
No, stories of increased premiums due to health reform are not mostly just propaganda, because the people who have had it happen to them are stating the truth. Companies have had to look at the hard realities of increased costs and determine to cut health insurance complete, or to cut jobs.
No, the stories of increased premiums due to health reform are not just propaganda. Many employers who offer health insurance to their employees have had to make substantial upgrades to the plans they offer in order to comply with new minimum requirements. These upgrades have resulted in much higher premiums, which most employers have passed on to their employees.
