    $146.45 bi-weekly No Copays $4,500 deductible
    or
    $170.82 bi-weekly No Copays $1,750 deductible

    For the first option,
    doctors will look at you as if you're cash patient
    and are slow to give you a referral
    "This patient has no insurance wallet."

    Affordable Care Act?

    Chiropractor $100 month?
    Massage $100 month?
    No: the money is going to insurance

    Prior to Obamacare, I used to pay to Blue Shield about $325.00 a month for PPO it included Chiropractor care.

    Now, Blue Shield discontinue the plan that I had right after Obamacare, and was forced into their Bronze plan which did not include Chiropractic care. Then this plan was discontinued this past December to all who had it and was forced to sign up again. I had not choice but to go up to the Silver plan, since I needed PPO. Now I pay $426.00 a month, no Chiropractic care included and more out of pocket that I have to pay for medications or regular blood work tests.

    So I agree, Insurance needs to get out of the medical business- I see it continue to going up and not helping the consumer. But with all the lobbyist in Washington doubtful, but the whole system needs to be overhauled completely.

    Huh. since you didn't have a problem before Obama got involved with insurance then government now needs to get out of the insurance business.

    Medicare and Medicaid are now in the euthanasia business. I have a dead Aunt from Obama's Medicare cuts and a Mother I stopped from being euthanized because I paid for the non-covered medication.

    Some are not better off after the ACA--and then to penalize people more than $100 for not having insurance: President Hussein and his protégé Clinton punishes you for being poor.
