Letter: 129 percent increase
I was so happy to read in the Nov. 6 Monitor that renewal of my cancelled health insurance is an option. For my wife Heidi and me to be able to continue going to our physician at Pleasant Street Family Medicine, where we have had three fantastic doctors, Web Soule, Rob Kiefner and now Patrick Fox for 30-plus years, is very important to us, especially since they and Concord Hospital are just 6 miles from our home. Of course, this plan will only be available to us for one year, and the premium has gone from $700 to $1,600 for a two-person, $11,900 deductible Bronze Plan, a 129 percent increase. Great job, Mr. President!
