    she clearly got the silver plan.  If she wanted lower copays she could've chosen the gold or platinum plan.

    Such plans would've had higher premiums, but just a basic perusal of the plan available to Ms. Boonstra in Michigan reveals that even if she doesn't qualify for premium assistance she would still pay lower premiums than she once did under her old plans, plus her out of pocket maximum would've been lower than her old plan.

    It looks like she chose the silver plan precisely because of the lower premiums but now she's complaining that the copays are too high.
