Obamacare ‘Provider Fees’ in federal register

Obamacare Provider Fees were posted in the federal register today. These ‘Obamacare Provider Fees’ are the health insurance plan taxes via Obamacare. The fees total $10 billion+ per year. The full proposal can be found here:

These ‘fees’ will be passed on to consumers and will increase an average HC plan by $300/year starting next year.

A background story from thehill.com can be found here:

The proposed rule in the federal register has a 90 day comment period which starts the day the rule is posted (today). I think its worth taking a look at, and now is the time to make our voices heard.
