ACA Offers Cheap Insurance With Hefty Fees For Specialty Drugs

President Barack Obama promised affordable health insurance under his new law, and yes, Americans with serious illnesses are finding plans with relatively low monthly premiums. In a lot of cases, they’re getting first-time access to health insurance. But these cheap plans come with a staggering cost.

Enrollees are shocked at how much their prescriptions are costing as insurers create complex drug tiers, and in some cases charging co-insurance rates as high as 50 percent, leaving patients with thousands of dollars of copay.

“Avalere Health, a market research and consulting firm, estimates some consumers will pay 50 percent of the cost of their specialty drugs — that compares to about 30 percent in the private market.” writes AP.
