    and includes tips & tricks for navigating the Web site, but here's the takeaway:

    So now…. After hours of aggravation (where I often used language so bad that I'd have to ban myself from the blog if I transcribed it here) our application is complete and we're enrolled in a cheaper, better health insurance plan that will save us almost $800/month over what we'd pay if we just accepted the offer letter that BCBS sent us a few weeks ago.

    Although when I started the process, I expected to be a consumer and not a beta tester, I ended up claiming both roles.  Initially, the process was frustrating and the site operation was really poor at launch, but I know from experience that it's really working much better now. There are still a few bizarre things, but I was able to work around them and hopefully, you can learn from my experience.

    Yes, that's right!  Hubby & I are self-employed and have been screwed by the insurance market for years.  And now, thanks to Obamacare, we'll have decent, affordable insurance AND and extra $800 to spend on college tuition, put back into the business, or even take a real vacation for the first time since 2006!

    Thanks a lot, Obama!

    Yes. There ARE progressive Democrats in Alabama. Visit with us at Left in Alabama
