    which stated a bronze plan (BCBS in S network) for us is $381/mo and I've posted previously our quote outside the exchange for a similar bronze plan (BCBS in S network) at ~$850/mo...

    I DO believe it...AS I'VE SEEN IT!

    Yeah, not getting an 'accurate estimate' from heathcare.gov...I guess we should've seen that one coming...

    Dickieboy, this thread is about the estimate being shown on the healthcare.gov site being just half what the real cost is . . . pretty much opposite of your personal example.

    Uh, my 'real' quote was ~$850 my 'estimated' cost (on HC.gov) is $381...are you arguing that my estimated is LESS than half of the 'real cost'? Perhaps I am confused...?

    If this turns out to be true, God help anyone associated with this site. This would be so much worse than the glitches the site has had so far.

    And, if this turns out to be true, it would kill any positives the program has so far.

    I'll wait to see what happens before jumping on the "You gotta be ****ting me!" bandwagon.


    If the two of you watch the video it explains exactly why it's double. The website quotes for people "50 and older" are calculated at exactly 50 years old. If that shopper is in their 60s the actual cost will be double. Why is this so hard for you folks to believe?

    Oh, Lordy. No, I'm the one that's confused. I think I even misread your post the other day you were talking about. Thanks for straightening me out. I believe it now, that's for sure. Yikes!!!

    Mea culpa.

    This can't be true and even if it is and then brought to Obamas attention...NO ONE And I mean NO ONE will be more frustrated than him, and then he will double down and bring in his A team to fix it. Nothing to see here or worry about...

    Having an open mind isn't the same as not believing it. One thing in favor of the story, is the source. I seriously doubt that any of the big three would say anything bad about ObamaCare if there was any doubt about its truth.

    Thanks guys...but the original point remains...WTF was the point in adding this 'estimated premium' to HC.gov after the rollout? AND how much did WE pay for that?...! are we suppose to feel better now?
