Without the subsidy my wife and I would pay approx $1,000 per mo. As it stands now as long as our MAGI stays under $60,000 our monthly subsidized premium would be $276. Saving $724 per mo. times 12 months equals $8,688 per yr. So, in 18 months we would save enough that even if we had a major health issue and had to cover the $12,500 max OOP we would still be even.

The Vermont Green Mountain Care Board modified and approved the proposed 2014 health insurance rates in the OP of this thread. They required a number of technical changes that ended up reducing rates by 4-5%.

Also see GREEN MOUNTAIN CARE BOARD: INSURERS MUST TRIM COSTS OF INSURANCE TO BE OFFERED THROUGH VERMONT HEALTH CONNECT

So subject to appeal to the Vermont State Supreme Court by the carriers (which I think is doubtful) we know at least one state's exchange rates for 2014.

Ouch! I would be hit with a 421% increase for the comparable HD plan I have now. And that is including my current premium just being jacked up 15% this month.
