Green Room

Now available: Prices for every insurance plan offered on

posted at 10:20 am on October 23, 2013 by

Someone stumbled across this spreadsheet on the ObamaCare website last night and it’s been zapping around Twitter ever since. Is this information … supposed to be public? I thought the whole point of forcing people to register before showing them the prices is that they didn’t want you to see how expensive the plans are until you’d already been lured with the promise of subsidies.

Recently in the Green Room:

Download the spreadsheet in csv format.

Then sort on the Family column. You’ll find that if you live in VA, you’re screwed.

For Amelia county (VA), if you want the Gold Optima Health Vantage FourSight 1000 MO plan for a family, your MONTHLY premium is $6494.54.


Just sort on the family column (high to low), and discover that the highest premiums are found in VA.

This is the second thing I did (first of course was to see how much plans were where I live).

Wow do Virginian families get screwed. I am guessing Optima Health just said “screw ’em, charge them what ever we want!”. So glad I do not live in VA, AZ, WI, GA or WY. These states have the top 5 highest premiums.

Oh, Goody!

Per the linked website of a previous commenter …..
Plan Costs

My “cheapest” plan option would be Catastrophic insurance at $1,108.84 per month with a $6350 deductible. A real cost of $19,656.08 annually.

Most expensive option would be Gold (no Platinum offered) at $2,318.02 per month with a $750 deductible and a $6000 out of pocket maximum. A real cost of $33,816.24.

What a fantastic deal! (sarc)

Further notes:
After playing with the numbers … the subsidies are HUGE and WILL bankrupt this country.

People will go ballistic over their “free” healthcare with large deductibles.

The D’s are going to want further subsidies for these deductibles.

The R’s will resist and THIS will be THE BIG DEAL in the 2014 election cycle.

The end truly is near.
