Better hurry because Ohio Open Enrollment starts in October for January 1 effective dates.
The Exchanges are going to be a big challenge for Ohioans and those NOT qualifying for subsidies may have to consider outside Exchange plans.

@Chessie @Mmedical Indeed it is a strong lobby, but keep in mind that this same lobby did not have the clout to substantially increase the tax imposed on uninsured consumers (which they heavily lobbied for).
The answer? I have been in the healthcare field for 32 years and it's not clear what the best option is. Medicare is fraught with waste and corruption so perhaps it's not the best option...yet anyhow.
However, perhaps a more prudent way to proceed was the expansion of state high risk pools and increased utilization of HSAs through additional tax credits.
Instead, we now have a system that even the CBO says will cost consumers $20,000 per year for their health insurance in 2016.
But I'm eternally optimistic so we'll see where this goes.

It will be nice when all carriers get on board. We'll need all of the help we can get when the rates spike from The Affordable Care Act (unless you qualify for a subsidy). EH
