I also received a more than 40% monthly rate increase as has continually happened since Obamacare' inception.  They appear to be doing away with PPO's completely.  What's worse, the HMO's of yester-years are gone.  No more are the 100% coverage HMO's used to offer and instead, coinsurance percents have increased substantially.  If you want affordable premiums, you will pay it out of pocket instead.  Deductibles are insanely high, and if using out of network doc's- you might as well not be insured- coverage is 50% or less.  THANK YOU MR. OBAMA for making health insurance affordable for those who choose NOT to work and NOT to pay premiums.

@cosgirl ... Hi, I felt just like you until.... I became physically disabled, lost my job within a year "at a redesign". I physically could not perform my job any more, required a scooter and was constantly placed in New positions for 1 year until let go after 26 years.  Not bitter at job.  but insurance situation was bad...... At 58, and disabled I cannot find a job and health insurance and medication I now take at 60, have literally ate thru my savings and retirement funds.  So, I thank Mr Obama for this tiny break for me.  And I no longer turn my nose down at welfare people.

Just got my notice from BCBS.  My crappy Blue Choice plan from 2015 is discontinued.  The new "preferred" plan will cost $400 EXTRA per month, for SLIGHTLY better coverage.  This is where Obamacare is leading America - even those with limited means, like myself, still can't afford health care premiums and huge deductible's - FAIL, FAIL, FAIL.

Oh that's just great! Less and less choice for the consumer! This is what was gradually expected to happen with the gigantic welfare scheme aka Obamacare; or government-run health care, because there aren't enough young, healthy consumers dumb enough to buy Obama's DOG food. And BC/BS (Scott Serota) and Karen Ignani's lobbying group cut a deal with the devil in the White House (and I say that with all due respect...) and spread misery to millions of Americans. Until this trash is thrown overboard and replaced with consumer-friendly and health care plans (bring back the private, independent doctors!) the majority of Americans will become poorer and sicker.  Obamacare is all about control and coercion. You'll note that Serota, Ignani, Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, McConnell, and the rest of the thuggish powers to be all personally have broad access to quality health care, but they left the Vets, the poor, and now Obamacare victims -- well, they basically kicked us all to the curb! There was always something "sinister" about Obamacare, and every passing year we learn more about its inherent evils. It's no surprise that BCBSIL is narrowing its broad network. This is only the start. Won't take long before Obamacare, Medicaid, and the VA programs all merge into one huge, inefficient, and failing "blob" of a health care scheme with filthy facilities, rationing, waiting lines, inept and utterly stupid health professionals, and very sick Americans begging for care, waiting and then dying unnecessarily. They'll re-use spent syringes, towels, and bed linens in hospitals and tell us to bring our own toilet paper. That's where we are headed, folks! Absolute power corrupts absolutely. God help us!

You are absolutely correct - I've already seen the hell hole hospitals (kindred) and seen the future. BCBS destroyed my life after I paid $1500 a month for insurance for over 10 yrs. I have a chronic health condition and I have lost ALL my doctors, suffered and been tortured, soon they'll kill me. And I voted for Obama.
