Hi All - My son and I were able to get on Healthcare.gov yesterday around dinner time to buy him health insurance. Yes it took a bit of time but so what! I've waited for hours to eat at the Cheescake Factory and to get tickets to concerts. Hell - I've seen people wait in the cold on Thanksgiving day so they can get bargains on Black Friday.

Anyway - we live in PA and my son was able to get rates starting at 45$ and up. We are now comparing different Blue Cross Silver Plans but the subsidies were awesome.  Also, I contacted the 800-318-2596 and got some assistance and they were very helpful and polite. We're going to reach out to Blue Cross to get a bit more info but we was very pleased. Blue Cross has a Tier system at the Silver level and above which provides my son with access to almost all hospitals in the region but out of pocket costs will vary depending on the Tier he uses.

GOP is scared and threatening a coupe because ACA is changing the US for the better. Stand with President Obama - the future of our wonderful nation is at stake.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
