        (trying to get an idea of how they price things)

          The only difference I can see with ACA and Kaiser(other than the outrageous premium increase) is that they don't charge me more because I am a woman (which is what they used to do)....now EVERYBODY pays through the teeth at the same amount.  

          I've never even met my deductible until last year, so they were making plenty of money on my high premiums for years.

           Just to be informed:  Kaiser says that the preventive care check up is free: but if you have a diagnosis, they will charge you many hundreds of dollars for that visit. I learned that the hard way when I showed up for my check up and the doctor diagnosed a sports injury.  To be fair, I fought the charges and won, but that is probably not the usual outcome.  Make sure you are 100% healthy for your check up(what a scam!)

          We need single payer!
