View Diary: In 400 Days the Health Insurance Cliff will Kick In. For Real. (97 comments)

  •  Many people who will benefit from the PPACA (19+ / 0-)

    are self-employed or will become self-employed once they are able to obtain insurance.  Hence the term 'clients.'

    No moral or monetary judgements are implied by this diary. What you consider making plenty of money someone else may consider barely enough to get by, especially in a high-cost-of-living city.  Or not.

    Regardless of such judgments, having limits implemented as they are in the PPACA (instead of like marginal tax rates) is just plain stupid.

    •  so instead of several cliffs (1+ / 0-)

      you want many more smaller cliffs?

      I think?
      so, if I am getting this, at the lowest level we are going to pay no more than 2% in premiums, and then what, the subsidy picks up all the slack of whatever plan we have chosen?
      Does this cover her Blue Shield plan, and can we then change that plan to a lower  out of pocket plan, (with presumably a higher premium) as we have to now pay $4800 out of pocket before any insurance coverage, besides their negotiated rates 'benefit'.?
        Actually Blue Shield has told her that plan is no longer offered..but hasn't sent any choices or info, but still accepts the premium check?
