  •  I have group medical via Cal PERS, coverage (2+ / 0-)

    for both my son and I.  It's a Blue Cross PPO.  My employer gives us a chunk of money (usually enough to cover just myself) and employees pay the balance.     My son has special medical needs and he has superb docs for them, so I will not switch to another insurance plan that doesn't cover those docs.

    For some reason, my insurance rate will go up about 34%; I was pretty surprised.  Not sure why, yet.  My income is too high for any subsidy, but I guess I could look at dropping my son (he's 21) and get him coverage via the exchange.

    If that's not an option, however, I will still stand by an imperfect Obamacare as a necessary step towards the long run reconfiguration of our health care system (i.e., single payer).  

    The most violent element in society is ignorance.
