  •  I keep posting this. (7+ / 0-)

    Pre-ACA because of pre-existing conditions, I was stuck in the ONLY insurance plan we could get when we went freelance (this was before BC/BS and some of the other big guys began offering individual plans; by the time they did, we had pre-existings).  The coverage kept going down and the premiums kept going up, until we had the equivalent of a Bronze plan at a MONTHLY (note this please, MONTHLY) premium of around $2400.  What could we do?  We knew that a catastrophic illness would destroy us.

    Come December, I got a BC/BS premium gold plan via the ACA, with Dental, no lifetime caps, for half that.  It's not cheap, but we don't qualify for subsidies.  And if I'd been all right with downgrading to silver, it would have been a quarter of that premium.

    I can prove all of this.  And know what happens?

    Conservatards accuse me of lying.
