2. What % Does the $50 Represent?

It appears that the % of increases being passed on is smaller than in other years for many folks. The exchanges may offer you a better price when they are up and operational. Let's hope that's the case.

4. Back to paying $550/mo. Two years ago was paying

about that then dropped to a worse plan which has steadily gone up and now will pay more for less. Will have to drop to an even worse plan now.
Will I be able to get other Insurance when the changes happen? I thought a person was to have "zero" Insurance to be eligible. I am so sick of this crap.

3. Count your blessings

Our small business, three employees...premiums up $1100 for a grand total of $3600 per month. Go figure. Had to go in and chop the heck out of coverage to keep it at the outlandish 2012 cost. They say it will be worse in2014 when the final features of the health care law is implemented. We are stuck. The fact that Congress did not cap anything and left us in the Hands of the insurance companies is terrifying!
