Smokers to be Kicked in the Ashon October 2nd, 2013 at 7:43 am
I’m waiting for smokers to find out that under Obamacare that health insurance companies are allowed to add a smoker’s premium to an individual’s health insurance. A young single worker that pays $300/month could be charged a surcharge of $150 per month for the privilege of lighting up. Older smokers could be charged $400 or more per month. The smoker’s surcharge is NOT subject to subsidies.
Good idea to get people to quit smoking? Not really. Smoker’s will simply pay the $95 tax for not having health insurance.
