Health Insurance 2014 - A question?

Hi All,

Read a bunch of different threads here. And a bunch of stuff on the net.
Have a question on the Healthcare bill that will take effect in 2014.
Some details:
Live in Pennsylvania
I'm 52, and he is 62.
He will become Medicare-eligible before 2014(65 yrs old in 2013).
We will be withdrawing funds from his monies starting January 1st, 2011.
Will not touch mine until I reach 59-1/2 at the earliest.
If we retire January 1st, 2011, how does the bill effect same-sex partners that are not "legally" married?
Technically, I will not be receiving any income at age 55.
Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated.

I would think that, under current law, you will be treated as single (that's the way you file your tax return) and will be eligible for the subsidy since it will be based on your income alone. I believe this is the same as it would be for a heterosexual couple who lived together but weren't married, where only one had income.
I'd rather be governed by the first one hundred names in the telephone book than the Harvard faculty - William F. Buckley
