Law is not lowering our health care costs

After having heard that “Obamacare” would lower our health care costs, I was surprised (actually astounded) to learn that the cost of my current Medicare Advantage plan would increase by $36 per month to $101 per month, and that a deductible of $300 would be added. Upon reviewing details, I learned that the cost of my treatments would increase from $30 to $800-plus.

I am hoping members of Medicare Advantage plans will carefully double- and triple-check the details to avoid their own private “fiscal cliff” in 2013.
