  •  No to Medicaid (or maybe), yes to exchanges (6+ / 0-)

    Unlike Medicaid, the law says if a state refuses to set up an exchange for paying customers, the Feds will set it up and run it for them. So if you are not-quite-so-poor, you will have access to an exchange to buy insurance.

    I'm self-insured right now too and looking forward to having more options in 2014 -- but very nervous about what the actual cost will turn out to be. I know it's supposed to be capped at 8% or 12% of your income or something, but that's a lot of money.
