The medical industry is full of thieves,
which includes local physicians and providers
who play dumb about skyrocketing costs
backed by apologists like Andrew Brod
...The Affordable Care Act’s third year in North Carolina will result in significantly higher rate hikes for 2016 than customers saw in January 2015, when Blue Cross went up 13.5 percent and Aetna 2.9 percent. Strictly in terms of percentage, North Carolina’s increases are among the highest in the nation.
"North Carolina’s increases
are among the highest in the nation."
Coventry Health Care of the Carolinas, owned by Aetna, will raise ACA rates 23.6 percent on average for about 117,000 customers.
Health insurers told the Department of Insurance that they were facing steep costs as hospitals hiked their charges, and older, sicker customers signed up for subsidized insurance to pay for expensive treatments. In all, about 460,000 people in North Carolina are enrolled in individual plans under the ACA.
Which Andrew Brod said wouldn't happen
“What we’re hearing from the insurance companies and seeing in the numbers is their expenses are way worse than they expected,” said Kerry Hall, a spokeswoman for the Department of Insurance.
Health insurance and medical care is a rip off
Think the News and Record will report it?
“We also need to make sure that insurance companies are solvent and they’re here offering plans. It’s important that the rates are enough so they can keep on doing business here.”
