  •  There is a max out of pocket (0+ / 0-)

    of about $6k.  Also if you qualify for subsidies then your co-pays are also reduced.

    This is a huge improvement over plans that individuals can currently buy.  Most pay nothing at all until you've spent thousands on healthcare.  And while doctors and hospitals have contracted prices drugs must be purchased at retail.  I just found that out the hard way.  I needed something I'd used a few years ago and had to pay $80 which I thought was outrageous.  It's now $200.  The same medicine is listed at $50 in Canada and Mexico but I couldn't wait for delivery.  Seems like Big Pharma is gouging.

    Congressional elections have consequences!
