    under "Top Comments" and "preview plans and prices" to see what was available in each county without hogging a lot of bandwidth on the site. It doesn't take you directly to a BC/BS site, but all the plans that are listed are BC/BS. Then I googled the individual plan I was interested in to find the specifics.

      knowing specifics from the diarist, such as county, number of people covered, qualify for subsidy or not, etc, it's difficult to help.

      I picked Miami-Dade, just because that's all I know, and it had much more than BC/BS

      I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

        rule. Orlando for example (orange county) is all BC/BS. So were the others I checked. I didn't check Miami-Dade however. For the smaller counties particularly it seems to be all BC/BS.

          where my in-laws live there's others as well, but they're both on Medicare at this point. Still, seems like all of Florida isn't BC/BS at least.

          Hillsborough is also a LOT more expensive it seems, despite the competition.

          were all BC/BS, I'm almost certain. There were a bunch of policies, too--including ones with no deductible that were not super-expensive.

          Of course, the more I read, the more I wonder what the fine print is, even in those! MAN, how we need single payer. I support the ACA but this facet of it is ridiculous.

          This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".
