At $20,000/year most families would come out ahead by self-insuring with only extremely catastrophic insurance.

Or, what we now call HSA. High deductible, low premium. We've had this for about 15 years. The most we would spend on health care would be around $12000. That would include the deductible and the premium. If we stay healthy, we could spend as little as $4800 for the premuim, and a small percentage of that goes into the savings account. Our deductible is $7000, paid out of the savings account or out of pocket. What I've found is that if you inform a doctor that you're going to pay cash on the barrel-head, they will cut you tremendous discounts because they don't have to argue with insurance companies and wait 120 days to get paid. It should be a model, instead it will probably be outlawed.

Ok. First. Think about how much you pay for health insurance currently. Now, think about how much you are going to have to pay under the new ObamaCare laws. Well according to a new IRS regulation released, they assume the average family will pay a minimum of $20,000 for their health care plans.

Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS.

The IRS's assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate...
