My 2 cent / what say you?

If I can ever get a quote, this is what I'll be asking. 1) Best policy that is eligible for a subsidy - I believe it is limited to silver? Since the subsidy is an advance, based on 2014 income I must not withdraw any IRA monies next year and hope to win the lottery this year! 2) Policy must have som...

Thanks RickP. I understand it will be mid year enrollment when DSRA will allow us back in so I 'll be searching for something cheaper. I planned to set up my IRA to auto pay the premium.

Re: ObamaCare

Thanks RickP. Here are my thoughts and they may change. To begin, we presently have the 2 person Gold DSRA plan costing $509.12 with HCTC. Fortunately we have 15 months until Medicare comes to our rescue. My plan is to downgrade to Silver and skip the optional dental and vision. According to RickP I...

Re: DSRA Distribution

I think this is a result of Obamacare as much as I hate to say. Insurance companies must pay out 80% or refund difference. Yeah I hate Obamacare too, but this refund is from the Early retiree reinsurance program. Part of the monies helped pay surviving spouse which congress eliminated. Now re-insta...

Hey RickP the huffington post was a good read. If money is speech then it is only logical, the lack of money means you have no speech. "Buckley v. Valeo" should be included in Bernie Sanders amendment efforts. The wealthy are like a cancer destroying our constitution. I've just learned mon...
