I did the calculator thing here

http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/

I will pay 68 dollars a month with 2200 a year out of pocket...I work Part time 29.5 hours a week...

not too bad if it is true....I went back and recalculated. I apologize...it must be my painful tooth,

1. I cracked my top rear molar.

and it is now chipped so badly it's cutting into my tongue. I have no insurance. I tried to pull it myself with a needle nose pliers, but no go. I guess I just have to choose a dentist and go in blind and pay out of pocket. Ain't life wonderful!

13. Then I pulled straight up...not with needle nose...could break a tooth..but with regular pliars

You should really consult a dentist...some roots of teeth wrap around the jaw bone..and if you pull that ..you break your jaw..so a dentist should be consulted and an xray done.

4. I'm 72 and on Medicare. I pay almost $300 a month.

This is for me and my wife, so divide by 2.

Medicare - Part B - $210
Medigap - $345
Prescription ins. - $37
TOTAL MONTHLY MED INS. PREMIUMS - $592

You're getting a good deal...for the U.S.

In many countries I would pay...NOTHING!

17. You are fortunate you can afford your premiums.

I am on Medicare with only the Part B and I pay $105 a month. I can't afford the medicap or prescription insurance. Since my Social Security check is $1400 monthly, that does not leave me much to live on.

12. Wow,

I had a number of teeth extracted in 2011 before I had the rest removed during oral surgery. The most that any one tooth cost was $144.

14. welcome to alaska

It is chipped down to the gum and may need minor cutting to extract. I left a message at UAA Dental school and will see what they can do (if anything)...

15. Obama delayed the cap on out of pocket expenses for an additional year

I'm somewhat screwed by that too. He needs to un delay it.
