« on: December 09, 2014, 11:36:45 AM »
Surprised there isnt one already... (Please correct me if I'm wrong and there is one).
I am trying to decide if i should go with a silver or gold plan for my wife and i. Any one here that's been on it last year that can answer some questions for me?

depends on your medical needs. do a cost/benefit analysis and see which is cheaper. No one can tell you what's best for you other than you.
Do you not get insurance from your employer?

I dont have insurance from my employer ... Not going to pay 10k for no reason.... I know it depends on medical need which is why i asked if people have done already bc then i have a follow up question about specific medical needs that many here may have had....

I don't know about anyone else but I am having a hard time navigating the whole system, it's such a mess. I wish there was someone who could help walk us through the options and available resources?

In in the same predicament. Need to get one for my wife before the 15th. No idea which to get.

Assuming you don't qualify for a subsidy, Is there any benefit to buying on the exchange?
If you don't care why would you comment?

In NY? Which company is offering plans off exchange that differ from the on exchange version?
