If you don't make enough to qualify for a subsidy, then you don't make enough to warrant a penalty. Still sucks though. I was looking forward to having "real" insurance.
    Going back to this conversation.. so I guess I don't really get this whole healthcare.gov thing. Couldn't you still have access to the HealthPlanFinder? I didn't qualify cause my income is over the limit, but I do have access now to their HealthPlanFinder which is pretty awesome - I can compare plans, see doctors in the network, etc.

    I'm so PO'ed with my current insurance. I new they changed my plan on January 1st, I just didn't really realize how crappy it is. I just got a bill from going to see my primary to get a referral (twice w/in a week. Should have bundled it into 1 appointment - my oops) - jesus. Good thing I didn't see the specialist yet! So I called and they said that basically my $250 a month plan, in addition to what I mentioned earlier about the dental plan, 'only covers preventative', as in yearly physical. But no test, hospital visits, emergencies, specialists, ect. All that goes to my $5k deductible. Seriously that makes no sense. If I didn't have insurance, a yearly physical would be no more than $500. What's the point in having insurance then?? Unless something goes wrong I guess.. but still, such a frikin rip off.

    I thought healthcare.gov and healthplanfinder basically do the same thing. Determine your eligibility for a subsidy and let you compare/shop for plans.
    Your insurance sounds really crappy. Wow, that's a huge deductible. Is it sort of like catastrophe insurance? But then $250/mo seems high for that for 1 person.

    Yea, that's right. But for Washington regardless if you qualify for the subsidy or not, you can still use the healthplanfinder compare/shop tool.

    Birthday is next Friday Jenn, but party was this weekend, since most friends could make it then, acc. to DH.

    I have a terrible cold, so i honestly could not taste anything except a little butterscotch on the handles! I really did not feel like running the knife through it!!!

    Most of my friends who generally made fun of (in a nice way) of my handbag craze or just could not understand my fascination for bags, went all the way. Some of them carried Coach (good first step ) and few even had Micheal Kors and a couple of exotic looking bags!! Dress code apparently stated : put your best bag forward!!!

    I've never had a pinched nerve before - my lower back and leg are throbbing. And I have a personal workout class in a couple hours..

    Was it really from them? Could it be a phishing scam?
