As the Affordable Care Act falls under more scrutiny, it has now been revealed that under the new Obamacare rules, married couples can save thousands of dollars on healthcare premiums if they get a divorce and continue to live together. Obamacare has been designed to provide healthcare benefits that are substantially more generous for lower-income people, and the bill counts a married couple’s income jointly.
For example, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, a 60-year-old married couple with no children in the household, with identical annual incomes totaling $62,041 would have their healthcare premiums cost $16,382.: : If they were divorced and had incomes at half of the $62,0412, their total healthcare bills TOTAL would be $5,354. By divorcing, they would save $11,028 next year on healthcare.:
“Obamacare is not something which America needs at this time — it’s destined to be a disaster plan and simple,” says: Dr. Chauncey Crandall.: :
On the marketing front, federal states interestingly aren’t referring to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) by name. Even the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) only refers to the ACA as “the healthcare law.” As for the State exchanges, their messaging seems to be centered around several common themes — but also don’t refer to the plan by its name.
