Farm Bureau Not Happy With Insurance Changes
UNDATED - A survey conducted by Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation is finding their membership unhappy with changes in health insurance. Farm Bureau President Steve Nelson says more than 700 surveys have already been returned – a week after they were sent out. He says 75 percent of the respondents so far are reporting significantly higher costs for premiums and higher deductibles. And Nelson says those who have visited the on-line health insurance exchange say they have found either little coverage for low premiums, or 200-to-300-percent higher premiums for their current coverage. Nelson says members that did report a premium decrease say the deductible is two to three times higher than their current plan.
