  •  nope, you have no choice (0+ / 0-)

    Under the new legislation, I am guaranteed a choice between that plan and the public plan.  So for many many customers, the public option increases their choice from 1 to 2.

    i think the house might be proposing this, that anyone be able to buy into the public plan if they want to, but the senate bill limits participation in the health insurance exchanges to those who are without insurance. if your employer offers you insurance, you won't be allowed to buy your own insurance through the exchange[s] and the exchange[s] will be the only place that the public option will be available.
