    You have a point about the traditional policies not covering all the preventative care that the ACA mandates.

    My concern is the fact that even when you do bring the 2 policies to parity in 2014 (in terms of the cost and ACA preventative benefits) the ACA policies will still provide significantly less value for the same cost due to the narrow networks.

    Most of the recipients of the ACA policies will be subsidized so that won't be obvious.

    The assumption will be "of course we're getting less, we're paying less" but the fact remains that the insurance companies are getting the same $$$ for both products with the government subsidizing the difference. So why should the insurance company be offering a lesser product?
