I have to leave or I would compare the prices on your list to those listed in this article: http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3082650/posts because Obamacare now has a low ball estimate showing when people surf the site (their cya response to complaints that you can’t see the costs until you sign up). By low ball estimate I mean that the estimates are too low, sometimes by 50 percent - it’s just window dressing. So I am wondering if you are getting the window dressing numbers or the real numbers because cost is dependent on age and an accurate table would have numerous costs for numerous age ranges per plan.
For a family like ours, in Texas, the plans average about $800/month, no subsidy. For the gold plan, it is close to $1,000 per month.
And those premiums wouldn’t even reduce our taxable income like our current health insurance.
The lowball is coming from these numbers. The insurance guy said the lowball comes from Barrycare only showing numbers for two ages, age 27 and 50. That is how these fields are labeled here for the individual insurance. So this form is likely the same “lowball” numbers people are seeing elsewhere. Unless you’re on the dot age 27 and 50, these may not even be close to accurate for you.
