1. Why didn’t the government just use eHealthInsurance.com instead of trying to recreate it?
2. You can go to eHealthInsurance.com now and compare available plans for 2013 and 2014.
I did. I found out that for 2013 plans for my family start at $152 per month. That is comparable to the high deductible plan that I currently have. I also have 58 plans to choose from.
I also found that Obamacare-compliant plans for 2014 start at $515 per month and I have 25 plans to choose from. And, yes, that is for a high deductible plan.
Is the cost of my insurance about to increase by $4,300 a year because of the Affordable Care Act?
I encourage you to give this a try. Go to the working website, eHealthInsurance.com and get rate quotes for you for 2013 and 2014. You only need provide a zip code, ages of the plan participants and whether each has used tobacco. It takes about 30 seconds.
