It appears that ObamaCare doesn’t cover babies under two years old.
“I gave you the chance to kill the little burden, now didn’t I?” – ObamaCare
ObamaCare has run the numbers, and guess what…little people can cost as much as old people. Yes, especially with all the potential crackhead mothers who might want to take a stab at child neglect.
Reported by the NY Post:
When Kelly called a representative, he was told his daughter had to be 2 before she could be covered under a family plan. He would have to buy a separate plan for her, at monthly premiums that ranged between $117.21 and $369.31. The cost would be on top of a family plan with premiums ranging from $810.84 to $2,554.71 a month.
ObamaCare knows what those mean insurance companies know: Kids cost more…a LOT more!
According to a report from the Health Care Cost Institute, cited in Medical News Today:
In 2010, per capita spending on children’s health care increased to $2,123, which is an 18.6% increase from 2007, with spending on health care for infants and toddlers being noted as disproportionately high. Even though children below the age of 3 made up 17% of the covered child population, they cost the government 31.4% of the total amount for children’s health care, with a per capita spending reaching $3,896 in 2010.
