    and I don't know what-all is in it, how or where to sign up, what to expect, or when the various provisions are supposed to kick in.
    How would someone who hasn't been following it know any more?

    There's a massive LACK of information coming out of government.

    (Is it time for the pitchforks and torches yet?)

    •  The government doesn't know yet (0+ / 0-)

      Much of what's going to happen in 2014 is unclear because it depends on each state's participation in expanded Medicaid and an exchange. The feds are still ironing out the details. Some states have not done the work that needs to be done. Some states are deliberately dragging their feet, and some are flat out refusing to participate (so far).

    •  I just wantt o know how much it will really cost (1+ / 0-)

      me and what I will get for that cost.  I know we will be above the help line and I am scared that should my husband's company drop coverage for everyone, the cost will be so much that we will just have to opt to pay the fine rather than pay for something we can't afford.
