The end of the ACA and a opportunistic devil named Blue. Senator John Barrasso said: “That’s not a market, That’s a monopoly”. He was referring to Blue Cross of Wyoming, the one and only health care insurance provider left in Wyoming. Blue Cross of Wyoming, at this moment is tripling and in many cases quadrupling the cost of healthcare to its customers. Apparently, they are no longer being subsidized by the Feds. They have had a full 12 months to plan for open enrollment and their solution is astronomical premium increases. Are their costs, in one year up 200%? I don't think so. I see a couple of very bad things happening here. First they are capitalizing on the failure of Obamacare, kicking their good customers in the teeth some of whom (this writer included) have faithfully paid premiums for over 40 years. There is no sense of customer loyalty within “Blue” anymore, only greed. Second, there are all the young people who were over promised by Obama & the ACA that healthcare was going to become more affordable, when in fact that never happened. The young & healthy were the key to Obamacare and now those same young people have one more reason to not trust their government; (I know the rant that “Wyoming should have taken the Fed’s medicaid money”). It is an argument, but in reality we just would have been in deeper trouble down the road. Now premiums have gone “Blue” nuclear and an investigation should be in order by our Governor or the Commissioner of insurance. If “Blue” fails to demonstrate how their cost of administration have gone so high, well then there are plenty of anti-trust laws on the books to deal with these guys. Come on! A policy for a healthy young person should not triple in 365 days. Blue Cross should be held accountable. Clearly there has been time to prepare and now this healthcare disaster lies on their doorstep.
