  •  The program is closed now (5+ / 0-)

    So many people applied that they had to stop taking new applications.

    In some states (and yes, they let the states manage it) the cost was quite high.  In our state, for a person the diarist's age, the premium was close to $500 per month. Certainly better than nothing, but still too expensive for many folks.

    •  I applied- (4+ / 0-)

      And simply couldn't afford the cost, even when the Health Secretary Kathleen what's her name made them reduce the costs.   I would have loved to have it but it was still not in my budget no matter how I crunched the numbers.

      •  The tragedy of farming ACA out to the states (2+ / 0-)

        Once they started allowing GOP and Conservadem governors to get their foot in the door, parts of ACA are beginning to unravel.

        It's been the main  GOP  strategy to destroy ACA, so WH compromising only makes it worse.

        Some day, we'll have single payer.  In the meantime, I'm looking forward to Medicare in several years.  It can't com soon enough.  Even though we have a decent income, and in spite of ACA, I think there's a good chance health insurance will become too expensive for my hubs and I before we reach Medicare eligibility age.
