Response to Scuba (Original post)

Sun May 26, 2013, 12:47 PM

24. I don't consider $1,000/month just for premiums "affordable"

Calculator:

http://www.coveredca.com/calculating_the_cost.html

Number of people in household: 2
Annual income: 63,000
Age of first adult: 55
Age of second adult: 55
Estimated Monthly Silver Plan Premium (without subsidy): $1,026
Estimated tax credit from the government: $0

$1,026 just for premiums --- co-pays, deductibles, coinsurance are IN ADDITION to that.

Run the calculator again with same info, except age of first adult and spouse are 60:

$1249 per month in premiums -- NOT AFFORDABLE.
