It is calculated as modified adjusted gross income. You have to add tax free interest and any portion of social security that is not taxable to your adjusted gross income.

I am guessing it is line 37 "adjusted gross income" from 1040 form...but why does it not just say that?
It based on MAGI, modified adjusted gross income

Just got dumped by Aetna in CA

This morning we got the letter we've been expecting for a couple of weeks. Aetna is leaving the individual market in CA, so as of the end of 2013, DH and I will not have the coverage we chose nearly 3 years ago.

Exchange, here we come!

I didn't believe the article that CA came in lower than expected as I felt that was truly a political article to ward off the shock of the general public. I could be proven wrong on that but who knows.

It will be interesting to see in the next few months what all of our rates actually are. Hoping others post. I certainly will post mine.
I agree also. As I picked up a prescription this morning, I asked the pharmacy technician what she thought of AHC. Her reply, "we'll, it will have to pass first if it does at all". I proceeded to bring her up to date.

Seriously? Wow, I can't believe a pharmacy technician doesn't realize it was passed years ago, let alone made it through the Supreme Court!

Maybe it was just the abbreviation AHC that she was unfamiliar with.

Then why would she confidently state that "it will have to pass first if it passes at all?"

Audrey, based on my experiences dealing with the public, you would be surprised at how little many intelligent, competent people are clueless to anything outside of what
is immediately affecting them in their daily life. That is not even counting the unintelligent... Just a few weeks ago a friend who is in charge of a company was discussing with
me how the healthcare act will have little bearing on their insurance. Then goes into talking about how much money he is going to save my getting his son off his companies policy and buying it through ehealth insurance last month. It never occurred to him that his son will be dumped into the exchange in January and pay more as the "underwritten party" ends December 31.

For a pharmacy tech that is truly amazing!. There will be a ton of scrambling soon...very soon.

I think most of us here understood the enormity of the implementation. Transferring the pertinent and necessary details and knowledge to 300 million plus consumers is an enormous task.
