Re-enrolled on the Marketplace yesterday........

The subsidies are still there for help but the Silver plan I had with BCBS is gone along with a $300 per month premium increase. The plan I'll have until August when I go on Medicare (if Trump hasn't thrown it in the dumpster) is a joke. It's really covers little with a deductible over $6,000. Basically catastrophic coverage and little else.

The plan I had last year--a Silver plan had a deduction of $500 and covered doctor and specialists visits with a small co-pay. To get a similar plan you'd have to go Gold and pay about $350 per month--and that's with subsidies. Last year before Trump started jacking with the ACA and scaring Insurers that plan was about $800+ per month,now $1136.00.

1. I looked at both silver and gold and found the gold to be a better deal.

2. Mine went way up

this year. Almost $500.00 a month. It also started putting limits on stuff that I need. I ended up just going with the Bronze plan from the Silver (it is still more than what I paid for the Silver last year but not by so very much), we can cover the little more but I still get my same doctors and hospitals. This is on a wing and a prayer, I will be eligible for Medicare next year, thank the gods. I can get my hip fixed then. Until then the shots are doing a fair job. What a damned mess this has become, of course it is likely better elsewhere, I live in Kansas where everything is there to move you one step closer to the grave while moving the Koch brothers 10 steps closer to completely running the joint.

I started with something around $350.00 a month with great coverage, the entire plan seemed there to help. It was cancelled the next year after Brownback limited what could be offered here. I only saw 2 companies listed but that was not for a plan with subsidies. Hopefully there are more there. Now to keep what I had the last year I would have been paying a little over $1500.00 a month for less coverage. I was able to get it down to around $1000.00 by using a lesser plan. The deductible is high but the out of pocket is a little better than the other.
