I don't know yet. I get health insurance though work and pay 30 dollars a week for full coverage, vision and life insurance. I am worried about it. I will find out in November.

I don't know yet. Dh is looking for work now, and when he finds a job we are going to weigh their insurance policies with obamacare, and choose which one is a better deal.

 It doesn't yet, we're under union contract for healthcare until 2016, so we won't have to deal with it until then......frankly as poorly as it is set up, I doubt it will still be here in 2016.

Insurance premium has went up yet again (which is typical, so this part wasn't a surprise), but my deductible is way higher than this year. My deductible practically doubled, forcing me to take out more on flex spending since I don't have thousands of dollars sitting around to pay my insane deductible. My out of pocket costs are double this year too. Sucks big time, but there is nothing I can do about it. I have to suck it up, but it doesn't mean I am ok with this obamacare bullshit.

 You can't be denied.  You -and all the rest of us - simply have to be able to afford the greatly increased premiums and deductibles. 

Just because you "have access" to something, does not mean you will be able to pay for it.  I hope you are, but many are finding out that they are not.

 Well, that's good for you, and certainly not the case for most.
