Another “gotcha” in ObamaCare

Death panels, no coverage for tots, and a government-run program that can arbitrarily change the rules. Sure, that’s just what Americans wanted in health care.

It appears that ObamaCare doesn’t cover babies under two years old.

“I gave you the chance to kill the little burden, now didn’t I?” – ObamaCare

ObamaCare has run the numbers, and guess what…little people can cost as much as old people. Yes, especially with all the potential crackhead mothers who might want to take a stab at child neglect.

Reported by the NY Post:

When Kelly called a representative, he was told his daughter had to be 2 before she could be covered under a family plan. He would have to buy a separate plan for her, at monthly premiums that ranged between $117.21 and $369.31. The cost would be on top of a family plan with premiums ranging from $810.84 to $2,554.71 a month.

ObamaCare knows what those mean insurance companies know: Kids cost more…a LOT more!

According to a report from the Health Care Cost Institute, cited in Medical News Today:

In 2010, per capita spending on children’s health care increased to $2,123, which is an 18.6% increase from 2007, with spending on health care for infants and toddlers being noted as disproportionately high. Even though children below the age of 3 made up 17% of the covered child population, they cost the government 31.4% of the total amount for children’s health care, with a per capita spending reaching $3,896 in 2010.
