  •  Actually, I just checked again. It's 9.75% of my (8+ / 0-)

    income. LOL

    Missed it by this much.

    I'm sure they'll see the error in their ways and give me some screwed up discount to bring it down 0.2% just to screw me. It will take my premium for (2014) $530 to anywhere from $60 for a bronze (with dependent) to $350 for a Gold plan.

    •  Can't you leave anyway? That is, if you don't like (0+ / 0-)

      being on any plan, normally (forget the ACA for a second) don't you have an option to either turn down get insured or get insurance elsewhere not associated with work, as long as you make those choices during the open enrollment period. Don't you have that option and freedom? I think most people do. Then with the ACA, you're just adding another option to choose from for the open enrollment period.

      •  Yes. Anyone can get on the ACA (2+ / 0-)

        The question here was whether you could kick your own insurance and go on the ACA with subsidies. I am in my open enrollment period right now, anyway. Also, I just found out, on the retiree plan, I can cancel any time, it doesn't have to be on open enrollment. So, I could actually wait until March, if I wanted to. No reason to, but I could.
