Anyway, for ***** and grins, I called up a local agent representing the ACA in CO for a quote. Our individual coverage (for our family) before my wife started working at local state university was ~$1100/mo with $2500 deductible. Current coverage is ~$800/mo through the university. ACA coverage was quoted to us - ~$1600 per month with $5000 deductible - for the Bronze plan.

Woman Hailed by President as Obamacare Success Story Now Can't Afford Obamacare | The Weekly Standard

Quote:
CNN reports that a woman the president hailed as an Obamacare success story just realized she won't be able to afford Obamacare because it's too expensive:



"Jessica Sanford was cited by the president as an Obamacare success story at a health care event he had here at the White House in the Rose Garden on October 21," says a reporter for CNN from the White House. "That of course being just last month. The 48-year-old single mom from Washington state purchased what she considered to be affordable health care, life-changing event, she said, on the Washington state health exchange. She decided she was so excited about this news, she wanted to write an e-mail to the president to say that this had really changed her life and that she was thankful for the Afforable Care Act. The president included her e-mail in his remarks to people on hand for the event. Here's a bit of what the president had to say."

HHS Secretary Sebelius Visits South Florida To Meet With Healthcare Navigators CBS Miami

Quote:
At a second table, the secretary met Carmen Salero who was trying to sign up online. As the secretary and Salero made small talk, CBS4′s Brian Andrews noticed the site crash on the lap top in front of them.

“The screen says I’m sorry but the system is temporarily down,” Andrews pointed out. “Uh oh,” responded the secretary. “That happens every day,” said Salerno, “it must mean a lot of people are on there trying to get coverage.”

Colo. man signs up for his insurance, his dog gets covered instead | KDVR.com

Quote:
The Colorado healthcare exchange has processed applications for thousands of people … and one dog.

Shane Smith, of Fort Collins, says his dog Baxter received a letter informing him that a health insurance account had been opened in his name through Connect for Health Colorado.

“I thought, ‘Wow, this is so awesome,’” Smith said with a laugh. “They have gone out of their way to insure my 14-year-old Yorkie.”

Smith had called Connect for Health Colorado to sign himself up for insurance because his old plan was cancelled due to Obamacare.

He’s not sure exactly how the confirmation letter went to his dog, but he says he thinks it’s because of a series of security questions a representative asked him over the phone.

Some D.C. Exchange Plans Cover Elective Abortion but Not Hearing Aids | National Review Online

Quote:
Multiple individual plans available on the D.C. health-insurance exchange specifically cover elective abortion but not hearing aids, routine foot-care, and routine eye-care. One such plan, Healthy Blue PPO $1500, has a summary on the D.C. exchange’s website titled “Excluded Services & Other Covered Services.” It says enrollees can receive coverage for abortions performed for non-medical reasons, but not for a number of other services that could seem medically necessary. The plan also excludes coverage for some other procedures, including cosmetic surgery, bariatric surgery, and infertility treatment.

Healthcare.gov

Quote:
“Hackers are definitely after it,” said David Kennedy, CEO of information security firm TrustedSEC before a House Science, Space, and Technology committee hearing on security concerns surrounding the problematic Healthcare.gov website.

“And if I had to guess, based on what I can see … I would say the website is either hacked already or will be soon.”

pretty sweet, I wonder what the cost in terms of time was to get that check out to you.

A few months ago I sent the paper work in to get a new passport issued. at the last minute I decided to pay to fedex it vs snail mail. a couple days after receiving my passport I received a USPS express overnight letter returning the unused stamp on my original envelope that was inside the fedex envelope. cost of postage paid by the government? almost $9. so they pissed away almost 10 bucks to send me back a standard postage stamp. what a waste of resources. fine, if they must send it back, mail it with a normal stamp, a wash, minus the wasted time, whatever but to overnight it? in my mind a great example of how our government is completely bloated without the slightest care about the cost of anything.

The company I work for (Hospital Corp.) just rolled out our 2014 plans, they are dropping all part time employees from being offered company sponsored healthcare plans. What they will also lose now is the ability to participate in an FSA to have pretax money deducted for healthcare costs. It is deducted pretax so if they can't buy insurance they can't deduct for FSA either.
I've searched but it doesn't appear that you can participate in FSA if you are in the healthcare exchange either, don't see how since it has to be deducted from your check.

I wonder if the company or the govt. even thought of this. Pretax deduction on $2500/yr. worth of healthcare is >$500 for many.
