Did you know that women pay more than men for healthcare coverage?

Think what you will about the Affordable Care Act this country is battling over, but did you know that this act would guarantee that women will no longer pay more for insurance premiums than men do for the same coverage.  It’s bad enough we get paid less then men for the same work, but we also have to pay more for the same coverage?  How did I not know this before now?

This practice even has a name – Gender Rating.  There are a lot of disturbing facts in this article, and I won’t repeat them all, but “56% of best-selling plans charge a 40-year-old woman who does not smoke more than a 40-year-old man who does”.  Really?

  1. Good find on this one. That’s crazy. And given how efficient we women are, it makes it that much more unfair!
