  •  I think that a lot of this (8+ / 0-)

    is coming from insurance companies who aren't in the exchanges.

    Insurance companies are not forced to participate; it's optional.  But it behooves them to participate - obviously - because it's one helluva captive market.

    So I think the companies that are forgoing joining the exchanges because they don't want to follow the rules, they are the ones telling their customers that "Obamacare is raising their rates and destroying their coverage!"

    All the stories that I've heard are from people who already paid their own way, and none of them could answer me when I asked about Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum plans.  If the company isn't offering this, then they're not in the exchange.  So I told them to go to the website and pick a new policy from the exchange.
