[12] And to make things even less secure for people who need medical services, most owners of ANY of these four types of Health Exchange Plans will be also charged money for "supplemental" services like pediatric vision, pediatric dental, prescription drugs, and habilitative services. [12] They will have no certainty about the total medical costs they will owe when they need many of these supplemental services. PPACA participants in the Insurance Exchanges will pay for an insurance Plan they can afford (after they get a "tax subsidy") AND pay 10% - 40% (or more) of their own total medical costs when they receive most medical services. Medical costs to citizens will be uncertain in this rocky situation. The most certain thing is that the citizens who get a Platinum Plan will know that they will be charged "only" 10% of their medical costs. And citizens who do not have a Platinum Plan will be expected to pay a HIGHER portion of their medical bills.
