Lots of innuendo that I "would" or "could" be eligible but nothing definitive.
Instead were a lot of questions about filing status (MFS), whether we lived at the same address, did I want to provide spouse's income (no), did I want to provide spouses SSN (no), etc..etc.. and then finally "You're approved!".
I felt like I was in a DriveTime commercial.
Then, the various plans were presented. I noticed that the pricing was the same as what I had previously researched thru healthinsurance.com
The only option at that point was a button on each of the plans to "ENROLL" and I stopped there because I wasn't sure what level of commitment I would be making at that point.
Which also led me to wonder how many people just went with the flow of the website, have been counted as having "enrolled" but merely went a bit too far clicking buttons.
