    While I am not arguing against your two examples, and higher deductible plans are the norm now, there are people with the opposite experience.


Well...the thousands of people I work with got the same bad plan. Basically...the rich don't need it, and it helped the poor (great)...but who pays for it? The middle class as usual.

    Again, I think the why is important a fair bit of the time. The coverage that insurance companies is much broader for every category now and so prices were going to go up.

    Many companies are mixed between choices with high deductibles are somewhat higher premiums based on what they have to cover. The end result is that they are fairly similar. Not sure that makes them good or bad per se.

    IMO, it is more a problem on relying on a strange market system approach to healthcare where at one point folks could get kicked from a plan. From a personal point I would wager that on average it costs more people more now but people are also getting more bang for their buck than in the past.

    Many things are just covered by insurance including health screenings and so on that have no impact on anything but co-pay.
