                          - you can purchase a plan, just not with the subsidy. it has to be a rider which you pay for yourself.  Aramchek   Nov-08-09 06:16 PM   #26 
                       - it prevents insurance companies from offering coverage *already included* in current policies  villager   Nov-09-09 11:43 AM   #27
