    Very few want to pay for the technology or understand how much it costs until they need it. Illegals consume the majority of healthcare $$ which are then forwarded to the tax payers and premium payers via higher rates. End anchor babies and free med for illegals and our H/C cost will decrease.

    I looked at the Colorado site to check out premiums and if I had to pay my entire monthly premium, the exchange would be cheaper. I am fortunate that my employer picks up a good chunk of my premium so I won't be buying insurance through the exchange. My current premium is $504 for a $1500 deductible, $5000 max out of pocket plan. The closest thing I saw on the exchange is a $447 premium for a $1750 deductible and $5000 max out of pocket.

    Is that for single coverage? Reason I ask is that is way better than what FOM posted earlier in the thread. For our employee family plans in South Dakota we pay between $1100 and $1200/month for $1000/family member deductible, max out of pocket. Office visits $15. Prescriptions $15. PPO

    Don't know how to edit on my phone. Max out of pocket is $5000.

    I still haven't been able to log in to the NM site. It would be nice if it enables us to have insurance again. My COBRA benefits, (that we were paying $1,500 a month for) ceased in 2010. Since then we have just been damn lucky, tried to take care of our health, and paid what medical bills we incurred out of pocket. We both work hard at whatever we can when we can. It has been scary. At our age, neither of us is likely to get a full benefit type job at all. Maybe this is a good thing for us. We shall see. I don't think anyone would call us users or looking for a "gimmee".

    For the plan I have at work, the premium for employee and spouse is $1051 and employee, spouse and kids is $1516 for $3K deductible and $10K max out of pocket. We have a 3 tier cost on prescriptions of $10/$25/$50 and office visit copays are $30 and $50 (specialist). The family plan I looked at on the exchange (same one I posted the single person premium for above) is $1004 with $3500 deductible and $10K max out of pocket (I put in fake info for two adults and 2 teenagers).
