Health Insurance Cost Rising



Dear Mr. President, I am sure you have found 2010 to be a most challenging time, and I hate to bother you with such a trivial matter. However, I remember, when you were promoting your health care proposal, you told me that I could keep my plan if I liked it and there would not be any increase in cost.

Well, here I am setting up my budget for 2011, and the insurance company is projecting an increase of 7.4 percent. That translates into a $67.64 increase in my monthly premium.

Since you said there would be no increase, I have to think that my situation is an isolated case, and that other citizens are not being exposed to this. Knowing that you were totally honest with me regarding no increase in cost, I would appreciate your involvement in resolving this issue. If, by chance, the proposed annual increase of $811.68 is correct, I would appreciate your making the increased payment on my behalf.

Please let me know to whom I should send the bill and the address. I have no preference as to whether you pay the increase monthly or as a one time annual of $811.68. I certainly appreciate your participation in resolving this matter as I just learned that there will not be a cost of living increase in my Social Security income for the second year. While I truly believe that my situation is unique, I would recommend any other citizen finding an increase in their premium, send it to your attention so you can resolve the matter for them as well.
