    I am writing in regards to Assurant Health sending my family a letter regarding base premium rate increases. I looked at your website and saw all of the other insurance companies proposing rate increases as well. I did not see a comment section for Assurant so I chose to email.

    I am sure my comments mirror most others. I don’t want to pay an increase. Our insurance costs have already tripled in the last year and this is already putting a bind on my family’s finances. I am self-employed and my wife raises our three children, one of which has CP and health costs are already very high. Assurant is proposing a 23% increase in base premium. I don’t see how these insurance companies aren’t already making money hand over fist so I don’t feel a rate increase is needed. The entire reason the affordable care act was passed (or pushed on us) was so that everyone would have insurance and that many would have to shoulder the burden for those who are not willing to be responsible for themselves, or are unable to. The insurance companies should be held accountable as well. They need to cut margins and shoulder some of this instead of putting this all on those of us that try to make a living for our families and attempt to save something for retirement so that we won’t have to rely on the government later in our lives.

    Thank you

    Jerry Martin
