Legitimate risks exist. However, the Florida Blue experience and that of other cases will all need to be looked at more closely before one can reach conclusions e.g., those concerning possible adverse selection, among other issues. The opportunity to enroll, cost of replacement plans, shift in enrollment patterns, and impact on currently covered and currently uninsured persons, are some examples of data that will need to be examined.
My early guess, based on CBO and other analyses, historic experience with sophisticated product/service introductions, etc., is that changes beyond a website fix will likely be needed. The magnitude of such changes (local? regional? national?) and nature of such changes are uncertain.

I'm eligible for $43 in subsidies.
When you make one-size-fits-all plans, with mandated coverage options, like maternity care even for single gay men, the cost will go up.
Also, that "legally forced to give you a refund" amount, if any, will be split between you and the government. Remember, they paid some of the premiums too.
Your political operative talking points have been way over stated to get suckers to buy into them.

Are you talking about the republican housing bubble and banking crisis of 2008, or the medicare part D legislation passed by the repub house, repub senate, and signed by Bush in 2005 with no tax to pay for it at all, that will cost us $70 billion on the deficit this year?Originally Posted by Fenton
Well if you get more, I don't mind paying more. I pay a lot of taxes, always have. I pay for roads that others drive on and they don't pay as much tax as I do. I pay for schools and others attend them and pay little or nothing for the privilege. I pay for the military that defends us all, and it defends many people who don't pay for it. And yes, I am willing to pay more for healthcare for a moral system that doesn't allow the heath ins. companies to make nearly guaranteed profits while their death panels deny coverage to really sick people who need a lot of care. How do you justify that?Originally Posted by Fenton
This a the reality of the old system, and it is not a myth:
Because Fox Asked, Here Are Examples Of People Who Were Denied Health Care | Research | Media Matters for AmericaResearchers from Harvard Medical School say the lack of coverage can be tied to about 45,000 deaths a year in the United States -- a toll that is greater than the number of people who die each year from kidney disease.
The Harvard study found that people without health insurance had a 40 percent higher risk of death than those with private health insurance -- as a result of being unable to obtain necessary medical care. The risk appears to have increased since 1993, when a similar study found the risk of death was 25 percent greater for the uninsured.
I'll wait for your facts.
