Small business owner Joel Lund has experienced sticker shock in his health insurance costs due to Obamacare, KTVB reports.
“We’re going to go from $770 a month which we were paying up until October, to about $1,300. I don’t see how this helps,” said Lund.
Lund settled for a short-term policy as he has thus far been unable to successfully enroll on the Obamacare website, healthcare.gov. Under this plan, however, Lund says the cost for one prescription would go from $10 under his previous plan to $454.
“The unbelievable complexity of it, the lack of transparency of it, the horrific surprises,” Lund said. “From an emotional point of view, I don’t think you can really prepare yourself for it.”
