    I'm lucky that I have coverage through my employer, but I'm curious to see how the exchange prices compare to average pre-ACA premiums.

    I paid for individual coverage right after I graduated in 2009, so thus I wasn't able to get on my parents' plans despite being under 26. I paid around $190 a month for Blue Cross Blue Shield in NJ, and from what I remember it was a fairly good plan.

    I think it would be helpful for us lucky enough to have employer provided coverage to see comparison prices. This will help us internalize the benefits of the ACA and spread the good news to our family and friends.

      What I do know is that in Virginia, I'm currently paying almost $1400 a month for a partially-work-subsidized family plan from Cigna, and it's not even the most expensive plan offered.  

      The platinum family plans, unsubsidized, are up to $300 cheaper.  And with no deductible.  Gold, which is probably comparable to what I have now, is like $600 or $700 less.

      Competition, who'd have thunk it?
