ACA Choices for South Carolina, 2016

My former health insurer, Consumer's Choice, was unwilling to continue in the South Carolina Healthcare Marketplace for 2016, so I was faced with the prospect of looking for a new provider. Unfortunately this left me with only two choices, BC/BS (54 plans) or Aetna (two plans.)

My old Silver policy had a premium of $435.00 a month with a $3500.00 deductible and an equal out-of-pocket. The cheapest BC/BS Bronze plan will be $520.00 per month with a deductible of $6,300.00 with an out-of-pocket of $6,850.00. Aetna's cheapest plan (Silver) starts at $890.00 per month...

Granted, prior to the ACA I was not able to purchase ANY insurance, but with this new hike in rates and deducts, I am defacto unable to afford health insurance once again. Because of my and my wife's (currently uninsured) combined income we are not eligible for any subsidies. I'm still not sure I understand the "Affordable" in the "Affordable Care Act."

P.S. - Fuck the Republicans
