    Indiana. The premium for my new ACA silver plan - pre-subsidy - is about the same with the newly created narrow network as it was in the high risk pool that covered me for the past decade.

    The rate for the high risk pool was 150% of the normal rate for my age and location. Anthem is the carrier in both cases. Now the ACA will be subsidizing my rate so Anthem will be getting the same $$s while I will be getting a very narrow network with zero out-of-network coverage.

    So, the insurance industry gets subsidized by the taxpayers to provide a cheaper product to me. What's wrong with this picture?
