That's one of the goals built in to the ACA, to put an end to that kind of cost abuse. But that's not going to happen overnight either.

What blows my mind in a good way is the quarterly premium I'll be paying for Medicare (next year, when I enroll in SS, the premium will be deducted from that benefit). The quarterly for Parts A and B, plus the monthly for Part D, and the monthly supplemental plan combined are just a skosh more than half of what I was paying for Aetna coverage!
