A 540% premium increase may be a new Obamacare record (Update)

A 540% premium increase may be a new Obamacare record (Update)

Fisherman with giant fishA website called NaturalNews.com has recorded what may be the largest increase by percentage that any policy holder has been subjected to as a result of Obamacare.

Of course, if you buy the formulation by Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, none of these premium hikes is the direct result of the Affordable Care Act.

Instead, Jarrett posits, “no change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans.” Yeah, right. Health insurance providers just decided out of the blue to impose an across-the-board rate increase on policy holders.

So what was the jump for one Texas family? How does 539.6% sound? Mike Adams, the writer at NaturalNews received a copy of the letter from Humana One to a friend, whose name and policy number have been redacted. The letter has been republished below.

Obamacare rate shockNotice the “before” amount of the premium is $212.10. The “after” amount is $1,356.60. Here’s hoping that the person who received this letter is one of those special individuals with “additional income” that they “don’t need,” which Obama has spoken about. Otherwise, this poor slob is going to need to sell one of his kids to make ends meet.

UPDATE: We have a new record. Reader Steve Hayes (whom I’m pretty sure is not the Steve Hayes, who is too young to be on Medicare) notes in the Comments that his premium under Obamacare has risen by 574%.
