For my family of four with Blue Cross; medical, dental, vision, and prescription it increased 0%. My employer pays 100%.

Mine is staying the same. I still pay in, but employer is covering increases....for now. I can't switch because I'm at the border. What I pay in isn't enough to buy full insurance, but my boss won't give me back (via pay increase etc...) what he is paying into insurance for me (even a percentage of it).

Still waiting to see how this is going to affect my rates. Hasn't yet, but I'm sure it will.

I find out for sure tomorrow. But it should be about $2,450 cheaper this year than last.

Yes, but now as a man you'll get maternity coverage. At least you're getting something for your extra 6% "tax".

Right, it's not men's fault women have unique health issues. Make them pay for it themselves.

Right, let's make everyone pay for trailer insurance, whether they choose to tow one or not.

Pretty much they do. Most car insurance covers your trailer while your towing it.

I'm sure the women of this site will be thrilled to hear maternity leave and women's health issues be equated to trailer pulling.

I don't have insurance for a trailer. Because I don't own one.

I sure the women of this sight also have prostate exams and testicular exams that they pay for too right?

Face it, men and women have different health care needs, there is no reason they shouldn't have different healthcare plans.

Does every car cost the exact same to insure? Is each driver insured at the same rates regardless of pre-existing conditions or age?

A more relevant analogy; let's make everyone pay car insurance, even kids, regardless of whether or not they drive a car. You are aware that according to these regulations, women, men and children all have to have maternity coverage.

Have you ever heard of any health care plan anywhere that charged men and women different rates? I have not.

I haven't either, but being a private business shouldn't they be able to structure things how they please. I'm not even sure, can insurance plans that don't meet Obamacare criteria still exist? Or what kind of issues do they face if they do?

It seems the current accepted demographic to penalize on insurance cost is smoking. I don't have a problems with that, and in a slippy-slope kind of way it's not much different than charging women differently if they find a drastic customer payout difference due to the capability to give birth.

I suppose they should be able to do what they want. I can't see many people buying into it. Certainly, no company in their right minds would sign up for a plan that charged women more.

And again, I'm sure women will be thrilled to hear smoking being equated with bring women. One is something people do, the other is what they are from birth. Also, just because a woman is capable of giving birth doesn't mean she will.

Got the numbers today. Medical coverage increased to me 15%. Vision remained unchanged as well as dental for 2014.

My sister-in-law is a "facilitator" of obumercare and used to work for a small health insurance provider. She said many small companies (under 100 employees) were able to secure last-years plan for 2014 from their insurance provider (ie, no change in coverage or costs), with the understanding that for fall enrollment 2014 they will completely loose coverage forcing employees to enroll in obumercare or get their own personal coverage.
