I can't wait to see how high the "out of pocket" costs get. I just got a letter from my carrier. Seems the new health care law requires that at least 80% of the premiums they receive from each individual has to be spent on health care for that individual or the insurer has to refund - this will reduce their profits for sure.

They will have to cut back, first on their man power, so if you're employed by a carrier, get your ducks in a row. Then they'll cut back on what they offer us.

This is going to get very interesting.
