As a small business owner, I pay less with Obamacare (our version of NHS) than I did with private insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield). I have talked with insurance provider friends about this and they tell me that a) each county has different prices based on the number of claims and costs in their area, b) insurance companies used to discriminate between males and females and now they cannot (males don't give birth, males insurance rates have gone up), c) insurance companies are now capped at 50% more for insurance for what they can charge smokers. Smokers are much, much more expensive than nonsmokers. Nonsmoker rates have gone up, so that smokers can have appropriate insurance costs. I empathize with male, non-smokers living in high cost/claim areas having ridiculously high insurance rates now. Now they can feel the pain us females have had with insurance companies for years. Maybe their complaining will help us reach unity in cheaper health insurance for all Americans. http://www.denverpost.com/frontpage/ci_13636522
This is the difference between the government telling you that you'll get care and actually getting care.
