It's a gamble, for sure.

We are in Ohio,[mod edit] a state that earlier decided not to expand Medicaid for the ACA.

Recently, I read that he has decided to expand Medicaid so if we could read my sons Eligibility Letter maybe we'd find out!

So sad for a "Developed" country in 2014!!!!!

I am hoping the Navigator I spoke to yesterday was right when she told me the income threshold is $11,490, not $15,800 for Pa ( a state which did not expand Medicaid), over which one qualifies for tax credits, and entry into the Exchange.

I don't know why the insurance co's here in Pa say it's $15,800. Maybe there's more money it for them to take that line......

I realize this post might not reach everyone who is understandably interested in the Obamacare rollout, considering that right now my portal page is over half covered with threads related to the ACA in varying forms.

But, I'd like to toss my mod hat on for a minute, stop talking about beer drinking, and ask for everyone who has skin in the game for this rollout to please remember, amid their understandable frustration, that we have Community Rules here regarding talking of politics, name-calling, and the vital importance of common courtesy in our posting.

As someone who has spent some very long, unprofitable, irritating, and fruitless hours on the healthcare.gov website, I understand. Damn, do I understand. But when our simmering irritation spills over onto the forum, it creates work for your kindly mod team. And since I'd rather be drinking the aforementioned beer, it'd be great if we had just a little bit less of it to do as regards these ACA threads.

So deep breath everyone, and try to dial down the venting a bit more regarding your feelings and experiences. If what you'd like to say is helpful, or reporting some bit of success in your healthcare.gov journey, or anything useful, really, then charge ahead. But if it is another reminder of how bad the site sucks, or ___________ (fill in with politician of choice) sucks, or whether it should or shouldn't be, then maybe consider just keep that piece of business inside your head.

Back to the beer drinking.
Sarah,
