  •  Have you checked out the Marketplace rates. (4+ / 0-)

    I thought that even if covered by an employer if your current insurance was above the 9.5% level, you could shop on the Marketplace.

      there is no subsidy.  It would save us $1-2,000 for the year, but because of the Repub obstruction we don't have a full bodied state exchange.  There is only one provider this year and most of the major hospitals are not included in the coverage.  (Anthem wouldn't pay them good enough rates.)

      Luckily, my husband will be covered by Medicare this summer and I will be able to be covered next summer.  That will be be a savings...

      We NEED single payer!  Canada has a great system.  The peace of mind it gives is priceless.  That was one of the hardest things to leave behind when we moved here many years ago.  Affordable health care should be a common right for all!
