Do you think this is a move in the right direction? 

I see free contraception all over the place now and think, Gee, the Obama plan in real life, Lol. 

Has your own insurance stayed the same or gone up as a result of aca?  What about deductibles?  I never paid so much attention to my plan until now b/c of all the changes and fewer choices on it. 

Thoughts?

I agree with you deenasdad. We have an incredibly high deductible we must meet first before my insurance covers 75% of my daughter's necessary supplies for her t1d, insulin syringes and such. And the meter kit she was given in the hospital when she was diagnosed last May isn't even covered at all anymore so we must switch there too. Coincidence I think not, The pharmacist I had a friendly conversation with tells me he sees nothing but deductibles anymore all b/c of aca, Insurance was never this costly and private insurers are paying the price for it, And the irony is healthcare has always been in place for those who couldn't afford it in the way of meicaid. SMH, the president is a socialist and his ways are destroying healthcare.

No, it's an attempt to push the country towards socialism, and is destined to either collapse under it's own stupidity, or destroy the US economy.  Personally, my premiums and deductibles have doubled this year.  Thanks Democrats!
