    You still don't have a general hospital???????????????????

    Although you are all set with Tricare, does the non-military resident of LA have the option of using the federal ACA website? Since your Emperor didn't agree to set one up.

    Love the"Emperor" title.

    Have a good turkey day!

    •  Yes, they can participate in the ACA website (0+ / 0-)

      Not setting up a state exchange simply means the exchange is mandated by the federal government. If the non-participating states (like LA and GA) had set up their own exchanges, then my husband would probably be paying less than he is. Setting up their own exchanges would (as I understand it) have allowed more competition, and better rates in the end.
