    and our insurer has already warned us about 2014.

    Couple that with Congress screwing around with the FSA (can't buy aspirin with it anymore....) - I usually reserve the max ($2,000) which doesn't cover co-pays and scripts for a family of three.

    I am actually considering paying the penalty a - saving for routine care and then, if something bad were to happen - buy insurance then since I can't be turned away for pre-existing conditions.  It may be gaming the system but if costs continue to increase - we won't be able to afford insurance - and if they can't turn me down - there's no incentive for me to have continuous coverage - I'll buy it and drop it as needed.
