I wonder if we are looking in the wrong place. I was on mnsure.com ....

My best buddy left today. Everyone else here hates him, but I'm going to miss him so much.

Why is it that whenever I find those people I click with at work, they move? Or I move?

Those are just to give you a rough idea, you MUST apply on the healthcare.gov website (or by phone/mail-in) to make sure AND to apply for exemptions from the tax penalties. You MUST use the healthcare.gov website. It's the ONLY official place to go, everything else is only an estimate. And a poor estimate at that. If you need to go to a different website for your particular state, the healthcare.gov website will point you in that direction.

If medicaid was expanded in every state, this would all work MUCH better, but no, people had to break it just so they could say "Look, it's broken!"

I did that and this is what it says

https://www.healthcare.gov/find-premium-estimates/
and
https://www.healthcare.gov/find-prem...8&income=34200


still can not afford it at 200.00 a month . I looked all around . I know I went to the right places , I can read and follow directions.

Also on the medicaid expansion , I agree with the why it was not expanded in my state , (The state cant afford it).

You still need to fill out an application. Those are still estimates only. It's certainly possible that you still can't afford it, but you can't know for sure until you fill out the application - and then if you can't afford it you need to fill out the application to not get a tax penalty.

That's bull, though. The federal government is footing the bill. It costs states more to NOT expand than it does to expand.

yeah, my brother's first estimate or quote or whatever was almost $200 a month. It wasnt til he entered all his info and got close to the end that he was able to get his actual out of pocket per month.

The thing is, health care should be a top priority for this country..making sure everyone is covered. We sure can seem to find money for other things.

SO I went to fill it out , and the only way to afford it is to get one where i have to pay a 6500 deductible before they cover ANYTHING. So i would be paying 35.00 a month to not go to the doctor (cause i cant pay the office visit/labs/meds) in order not to be taxed.

So I am either going to be ****ed now or later , yea thanks obomacare.


I meant to ask , what is this you say about not getting taxed because i applied.
