    I just don't answer loaded questions.

    Yes, Mike.
    I don't know who your customers are and why their rates are thru the roof. Every year my rates have increased both pre- and post Obama. About 3%. Co-pays for office visits have increased by $5. Rx expendeditures have actually dropped do to the availibility of generic substitutes as patents have timed out.
    Due to a dispute between my healthcare insurer and my primary healthcare provider I have elected to keep seeing my Doctor of many years. I now pay for it out-of pocket, with no restrictions from any entity. The twice a year visits are actually much cheaper than my healthcare premiums. JD

    My customers are small to medium employers who have either dropped their plan, cut benefits, reduced staffing to avoid mandates as well as individuals who due to Obamacare mandates are being priced out of the market. You cannot provide womb to tomb coverage for free but that apparently is the what our country wants. Oh, and don't kid yourself. Rx costs have not dropped. Until Obamacare mandates, Rx expenses are one of the biggest costs associated with health care.

    My prescription costs have gone down nearly 25% over the last 2 years. I guess I'm just lucky.....

    My insurance costs have gone up EVERY year. No exceptions! Regardless of which party controlled the Congress or who was in the White House.-Paul
    there's no good reason to fatten up a retriever.
