5. Some other observations

Before the website revisions, when the site was down, the site was down and you really didn't know when it might be up again.

I've found since the revisions that just because the site is down at the moment doesn't mean that it'll be down for a long time. Earlier this week I tried again a few minutes later, and all was well.

Another observation. Due to an administrative screw-up on my end, I let my BC/BS private policy lapse. Stupid. I applied for a new policy and was turned down. It seems my weight and some medication I was taking before was just fine. Now it's cause for refusal.

So, back to Obamacare.

Just finished the application process, now waiting for payment info from BC/BS, which can't refuse me. The premiums for three of us - two adults, one adult child - comes to almost the same premiums I was paying before, give or take a few dollars. However, my deductibles are no longer $5,000 or more but rather $2,000. The network is different, and that definitely sucks, but until more changes are made to our ridiculous health care system, I'll just have to accept that.

I already have appointments scheduled for January.
