    Wish I had it in front of me but the notice we got from BC/BS is that we'll be getting back 7.something% of what we paid in last year because of the mandate to use at least 80% on patient care.

    Thank you Mr. President.

    If you say so. I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield and I have received no such notice.

    BC/BS operates in many different states. Just because someone in one state with BC/BS is getting a refund does not mean you will if you live in a state where BC/BS used 80% or more on patient care.

    The premiums for my Anthem BCBS plan will be 5% lower next year, though I recall they insisted earlier in the year that they're meeting the medical loss ratio requirements. Many factors are at play now.

    Sweet discounts!

    We've replaced government with Sam's Club.

    Funny, my BC/BS coverage went up 7% this year. 8% last year and is expected to go up again next year.

    We all knew that ACA would save money and get us better product.

    That would be the exact opposite of Sam's Club.

    Some people don't care how dishonest the president is just as long as they get money and free stuff.
