The ugly truth is that Obama's Affordable Care Act well it's anything but affordable.
In fact the family of five will be forced to shell out twenty grand a year for Obama's Obama -- cheapest plan.
For more on just how costly obamacare will be for your bottom line Fox News medical eighteen doctor Marc Siegel joins me now.
Dollars now I know -- fine in getting.
No family afford coverage.
From an employer it's gonna cost me 151000 dollars up -- where -- the benefit to me here and.
On the -- -- -- here but let me walk you through this the cheapest is called the bronze plan and that's what we're talking about what kind of balanced plan in 2014.
-- what you're going to be able again at the state exchange.
But what I think is -- -- -- informing people here is the idea that the bronze plan.
Is some kind of catastrophic insurance.
It's not a minute coverage pretty much everything in regulatory emergency hospital for eternity in newborn mental health services prescription drugs rehab -- preventive and wellness services -- -- -- Dental and -- care.
Everything all the bells and whistles and you know want.
You gotta pay for that premiums are -- -- be -- so fair -- of five is gonna pay a minimum about 20000 dollars.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- no I think it's ridiculous and I also have always been a big believer in not over insuring people.
Here's the problem go to your employer he says she says look -- more gonna come view that the 5000 dollar level you now if you wanted to be more.
I'm gonna take the penalty the employer says go to the -- exchange you go to the state exchange and you find out for your family.
It's gonna cost you something like that up to nine point 5% of your income can -- can be mandated to go to insurance you know what.
You say Jerry I can't afford that well that's called the affordability glitch -- oxy -- -- in them here in no man's -- you won't have insurance.
-- not gonna have the kind of catastrophic insurance I want.
To be able to buy someone was eighteen years of age -- they need maternity coverage that they need eyeglass coverage.
It's entitlement insurance you pay for the rest of society and you're paying a fortune.
Up to 20000 dollars for -- everyday if this is an entitlement it shouldn't cover everything.
I'm saying it shouldn't cover everything it -- only -- catastrophe.
You know they sold -- to the American public saying it was only so that everybody who went to an emergency room would be covered instead.
All kinds of preventive services are covered everything under the sun and even if you have insurance of course there's no guarantee -- position is gonna take.
-- you're not caring carry any as an important.
What's gonna get here broke and that's -- the rate the premiums that are gonna go up and I think people be shocked at some of these numbers this from the American action forum.
-- -- -- young and healthy people -- premiums are gonna go up a 169%.
For 27 year old male nonsmoker my friend up a 190%.
What is this would act.
We don't -- we just explain why it's because this policy has to -- so many things.
You don't today by the patient comes to my office with a five or 101000 dollar deductible.
Premiums -- -- but obamacare mandates that the most I can have is a deductible is 2000 dollars on an individual policy.
It's deductible is low and you can't use health savings accounts or flexible spending accounts to make up the difference -- gonna have to pay a very high premium.
Premiums are gonna -- if deductibles can't go up if I could have a high deductible policy.
Then I could have a -- premier doctor -- thanks for coming -- situations and I trouble with us.
-- I totally agree I -- we've been railing on a curb what eighteen months now I think.
Not fans and certainly costs are going up not just for individuals but for families everywhere across the country doctor -- thank you for coming on to -- you.
