Real Lives Pt. 7

Once I enroll, which I will, I will get a better plan, from the same company, for 60% less. That simple.
It took me an hour to sort through all of this, including three phone calls to Covered California and a call to my current (and probably future) insurance company.
60%, Josh. And I could have saved 80% if I was willing to pay higher deductibles, but because it was such a savings, we opted for maximum coverage and no deductible.
That, to me, is a success story.
It's no wonder there is such heat around this, and it's no wonder anti-Obamacare governors refused to set up their own exchanges. Set up as it is in California, the benefits of the ACA are self-evident...immediately.
