Sounds fine and good to me. I'll be under 200FPL when I retire shortly, counting my pension. Am glad ACA is there for folks who have high medical premiums relative to income.

I am insured by Medicare, Medicare B and GEHA. What is interesting is that Kaiser's Medicare + outside of FEHB is less expensive, their high option is even cheaper when you factor in dental (Kaiser NW is the only one with dental insurance that I know of).

Didn't do that last year because returning to FEHB from Kaiser's Medicare + could be tricky. If FEHB could make that as a 'check the box' option for retirees during open season they could save a hunk of money.

I assume you mean it will cost them more next year than equivalent coverage this year. Can you specify by how much?
