Have you gotten insurance since it became mandatory?

This is only for those that haven't had insurance previously before it became mandatory. Do you have insurance now or are you still without?

I priced the marketplace for my husband and I. Got a decent price but financially, we still can't afford it. So we are just going to have to take the penalty next year. Can't help that finances aren't there.

I am pregnant so I am on medicaid but before I didn't have any type of medical insurance. It was hard to get insurance. It is so expensive

Yes it is ridiculous. Are you going to look into the marketplace when you come off pregnancy Medicaid?

We qualified for subsides but even with them we just don't have the extra money per month to fork out for it. I wish we did because I really need to be looked at(I have several problems going on) but what can you do?!

I hope you can get a good price when u apply! I'm sure if you qualify for pregnancy Medicaid you will qualify for some subsides!

I have it on the marketplace. $50K a year income -$171 for insurance. My state expanded Medicaid and my son is on it for $30 a month.
