The feds allow them to increase copays on an annual basis.

Rate increase update notice

Humana is required by Federal Law to post a copy of rate filings (i) with an annual rate increase of 10 percent or more and (ii) deemed to be unreasonable by State or Federal Regulators. No small group coverage rates have been determined to be unreasonable at this time.

https://www.humana.com/insurance-through-employer-support/tools/rate-updates

These increases reflect the increasing cost of care and drugs in the health system of the United States including medicare.Almost all Obamacare and private health insurance went up this year including medicare here as well.

The fed supposedly review whether this is unreasonable and they did not make this determination.Please don't shoot the messenger.Mine went up too, my child is on Obamacare and his went up too.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
