I am curious what the increase would have been on the old system.

You're about to find out, since the new tax bill also surreptitiously eliminates the individual mandate. Folks can go back to buying no insurance, which will I'm sure lower prices for everyone...

Is Dan part of this policy? I'm wondering if the private insurers are getting around pre-existing conditions by just accepting and then raising premiums year-by-year on such cases.

Mandate's still there, just not the penalty for having no insurance.

Now that people need not have insurance, then also fair is that any hospital can refuse service to anyone who cannot pay. Hospitals should have the right to put you out on the street to die if you cannot pay. That is the extremist Republican agenda.

Businesses must operate in their own interest. No business is a charity. So businesses can refuse service to anyone they don't like, who cannot pay, and whose religion is contrary to the company's top management religion. It is the new 'fair'.

Nope. This is just for me. Also, they cannot do that as all premiums must be the same for all who are the same age. The only variable that Iím aware of is smoking versus non-smoking.
