  • Well that is nice that there are programs out there that make it easy for the small business owner.  This was the one area that I was really interested to see how the new laws would effect things, and I think that the jury is still out, but I have h…
  • From my understanding the whole point of Obamacare was not to really override or interfere with already existing Medicare and Medicaid programs, but then again I am coming to find that a lot of things that I thought were true are not really that, so…
  • I wonder what the progress has been on this.  It surprises me how little about this we see on the news when it affects so many people.  I am a little disappointed.
  • I am not really sure what to believe anymore, but I do know that when I was looking at the marketplace, there was a huge difference between the prices when it changed and I had an income.  I was almost better off just staying unemployed, but actuall…
  • Looks like a lot of people are in a similar situation, and I am not too far removed from it myself.  I consider myself lucky to find a job that has benefits, because they seriously just are not out there anymore like they used to be.  It is crazy ho…
  • Seems like everyone is really experiencing the same sort of wonderment about what we are in for, and this is way too late to still be having that.  I would feel a lot better just going backwards at this point, but again I have no idea really.
  • I was always under the assumption that Obamacare was supposed to work well with Medicaid, but that is not really what I have been hearing.  I used to work a lot with Medicaid and there are certainly some flaws there, but it does help a lot of people…
  • Well we really do not have much of a choice now, which I guess is the point.  I am not ready to make any assumptions on the effects it will have on health care costs on the whole, but my cynical nature makes me think that the insurance companies wil…
  • Well I am not sure if this is going to be good sound advice, or just ramblings from me as a need to vent my frustrations, so beware I guess.  I would say report as LESS of an income as you can (but again, I do not want to promote anything illegal). …
  • If you are not married then I am betting that he would not be covered.  I am confused though, when you say that "common law marriages have been done away with in my area."  For one, I am just really familiar with the concept itself, and second, is t…
  • Well this sounds like something that they should tell you of way in advance, but I am going to assume that they did not do this (October to January, so 2 months).  It is sad that you can pretty much see they are "weeding out" people they want to, as…
  • Sounds like your good old fashioned bureaucratic incompetence at work here.  This is certainly frustrating, and what is worse is that you are probably not alone here.  It is so sad that these things can happen to a two year old, who we all know have…
  • You are not alone here.  When I was unemployed and was browsing the plans were pretty doable, but the minute that I reported having an income that was certainly not the case.  It was like you found, around $200 for a plan, and that is expensive!  It…
  • I am not really sure here, but I would guess that traditional insurance would be the answer here.  That said, I am not sure if there are any provisions in the law that account for situations like this, and I just know that it is frustrating enough h…
  • Well that should be an interesting book.  It would be really interesting if you could find a couple cases where you track their progress throughout the whole process.  I am betting that some people go through a lot of ups and down when it comes to t…
  • Well this is very interesting and very well written, so congrats there.  I am still not really sure what my stance is on the whole matter, but I definitely like seeing people articulate their positions well and not just rely on throwing random facts…
  • This seems to be the issue that nobody is really sure on.  So far, I have heard that this tax for not having insurance is pretty laughable.  Not at the amount, but more in the ability to dodge it and/or lie about it.  I am not really sure what I thi…
  • I am struggling to see the difference between the mandate and the iron-clad tax that you mention.  Isn't all the mandate is is a tax?  That is my understanding at least, but I very well could be wrong.  It is an interesting proposal, and there are c…
  • I am pretty sure that you are not alone here.  I heard from a friend that he has a similar scenario where once he got a different job he had to alter his entire application and process to get covered, and it sounds like a big old hassle, and one tha…
  • Well thanks for the quick laugh, @LilAnn - but now I am seriously thinking whether or not you were joking or being serious, and if that is the case I am sorry to hear that.  I think the reason I laughed at first might just tell you everything you ne…
