Those with employer
coverage might not be able
to keep their existing plans
either. The vast majority of
businesses expect to make
changes to their health
care plans to comply with
Obamacare’s regulations,
and more than half of
those anticipate the
changes to be significant
or drastic.

Kaiser Family Foundation Employer Health Benefits 2013 Annual Survey.
Note: Those with incomes
between 100% and 250% of FPL
who purchase silver plans qualify
for a separate cost-sharing
reduction subsidy that reduces
their deductible and other
out-of-pocket expenses.
In addition to premium costs,
individuals must meet an
annual deductible before
coverage kicks in. Average
individual deductibles in the
36 states with a federally run
exchange are much higher
than the average individual
deductible for employer-
sponsored plans in 2013.

More than half of U.S. counties have only one or two insurance carriers selling coverage in the
Obamacare exchanges. This lack of competition means less choice for consumers and less market
pressure to keep prices down.

In 2024, after 10 years of
full implementation and
nearly $2 trillion in new
spending, 31 million
people will likely remain
uninsured. Those who do
gain coverage will do so
primarily through
Obamacare exchanges or
Medicaid.

heritage.orgObamacare in PicturesSource: Medicare trustees 2013 report.
By cutting Medicare payments
instead of introducing real
reform, the health care law
jeopardizes seniors’ access to
providers. According to the
Medicare trustees, Obamacare’s
scheduled reductions to provider
payments will cause Medicare’s
payments for health services to
fall further below providers’
costs. This will cause providers to
either withdraw from serving
Medicare beneficiaries or shift
more costs to their patients with
private coverage.
Obamacare’s
Medicare cuts will
result in severe access
problems for seniors

Opposition to Obamacare has hovered around 50 percent since early 2010.

By cutting Medicare payments instead of introducing real reform, the health care law jeopardizes seniors’ access to providers. According to the Medicare trustees, Obamacare’s scheduled reductions to provider payments will cause Medicare’s payments for health services to fall further below providers’ costs. This will cause providers to either withdraw from serving Medicare beneficiaries or shift more costs to their patients with private coverage. Obamacare’s Medicare cuts will result in severe access problems for seniors
