Smoking becomes more expensive in USA
ObamaCare (The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) imposes large insurance surcharges on smokers. These measures will allow health insurance companies to charge tobacco smokers up to 50% more for individual policies.
The law comes into effect in 2014. According to the recent research about 20% of people in the United States smoke cigarettes.
So what smokers should do? They can either get over the fact that insurance will take the heavy toll of their income, or quit smoking at all.
With this, physicians claim sudden smoking cessation may cause serious damage to health of a heavy smoker.
