For those with private health insurance
Are you looking into insurance options now that the Affordable Care Act is about to go into effect with full force?
DH and I have been, and it seems a bit of a scary scenario. Apparently since his work offers insurance (but it's very expensive, so we go with private insurance), and he makes too much to qualify for any form of a subsidy, we've heard the rates may go up as much as 100% in our income bracket. And since we acquired this insurance early last year, we are not grandfathered in to any kind of locked rate, so our rates could easily go up at a moment's notice.
Has anyone heard of anything similar? Which insurance companies are you looking at? Have you begun to compare rates? What's it looking like?
