So I've been hearing a lot about obamacare. I'm curious now if we military families can apply, since we qualify for subsidies under the new standards. 'Cause I really need more coverage than tricare is giving me.

What do you need coverage for that Tricare won't cover?  

To answer your question, I don't think you can apply for it, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

I am not sure what coverages you think you will get with ACA that you are not getting with Tricare- but I an say that I have civilian freinds who have ACA- they have a 6,000 dollar deductable,,,, yes I said 6,000 dollars, this is out of pocket before the insurance covers ANYTHING and hier monthly payment for a family of 4 with only one parent working is 567 dollars a month.

the are currently spending 540 dollars a month JUST in RX costs.

oh and they get "help" with the subsidies.......

I am curious why you need additional coverage over Tricare. I'm also curious why you think the insurances available thorough the ACA would provide that coverage or be affordable.

Tricare has been wonderful for me and my family. From a horrible motorcycle accident to two complicated pregnancies. No complaints here and no need for changes.

I'm also curious as to what you need that Tricare isn't covering. Chances are though if they don't cover it, not many other insurances will.
