    policy and price off or on the exchange.(But only can get a subsidy for it if bought on the MNSure exchange.

    In that case, how would a doctor know if you bought it on the exchange? How would an insurer offer one network for the same plan if purchased directly (with no subsidy) and another network, if bought on the exchange? That is just nutty.

    It would make a great article to call the various insurers in CA and get the scoop directly and write that up.

    I have never been a big fan of BC, but am amazed that they won't reveal their network.

    For a Preferred One policy in MN, I was able to pick the network my doctors are in, right on their site, and then called my doctors to doublecheck.

    (And incidentally, I'm replacing a pricy BC/BS U of MN student group policy that was $265/$3,000 max out/ and meds dont count towards that, that for me was a total cost annually for mild chronic condition meds of $6,000.

    Next year, with my Obamacare plan from Preferred One, I'll save $3,000 as all is covered 100% after $1,000 deductible and premium is $140 - with no subsidies)
