With People nationwide looking at increased premiums, deductables and Out Of Pocket Costs it is clear that people will soon be spending more on premiums and medical expenses than ever before. As for how well it works one only has to look at the increases in costs for Durrable Medical Devices and Medications as a result of the law. For those who are not aware of it here is why: 1. ACA requires new taxes on both at EVERY level in the supply chain. 2. ACA also has fees that are required for each one. While not all of the increase are directly tied to the increase, they are indirectly tied. Here is how... Many of these new costs were retroactive which means companies could be put out of business if they did not recoup them somehow. Sadly, if that were to happen then the supply would be more 'scarce' and thus demand would drive up the costs even more! So what are your thoughts? Here is an example of that:

I read the article linked. I risk a few thoughts, but I might be wrong, as I do not know the details of Obamacare, and it is another world for me : a doctor cannot refuse a patient in my country, it would be a malpractice. Offering health care to everybody is a good idea, but it seems that the implementation used in the USA is not good : a basic health insurance similar for everyone with a choice of supplemental health insurances would be more interesting for insurance companies, and would probably result in more varied offers for the patients...
