    Inching Along in Enrollment at Marketplace Exchange

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     k3vsDad continues to have difficulty signing up for Obamacare in Indiana: ' To date, while Iohn has learned he’s eligible for a $242 per month tax credit subsidy, he still cannot access or see what plans, coverage and options are available to him. When we are able to click to choose a plan, it is always the same response: “that page cannot be found on HealthCare.gov”. It is frustrating. Our state, Indiana, is one of 34 nationwide leaving it up to the federal government to operate the Marketplace Exchange. Will there be success sometime today and actually see the plans? Who knows? So far this is a nightmare.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    On  Saturday in the wee hours of the morning, my life partner Iohn and I  were able to finally register and begin the process of reviewing plans  available on the Marketplace Exchange for health insurance in the  Cornfield. But since then there has been little to know progress.

    While  today we were able to learn that Iohn is eligible for a $242 per month  tax credit subsidy and may be deducted monthly from the premium amount,  what we still are ignorant about is what plans are available, the cost  and the options and coverages under those plans here in the Hoosier  State.

    Once  we learned about the subsidy amount Iohn qualifies to receive, Iohn  elected to have the subsidy deducted each month. Learn more about how  the subsidy works and the three option for use by reading: Tax Credit Subsidy Has Options.

    Following  along with the process, we were finally ready to check out the plans,  see if any were affordable even with the subsidy, and how the coverage,  deductibles, co-pays, out-of-pocket expsenses, prescriptions and caps  compared between the four type of plans: Bronze, Silver, Gold and  Platinum.

    When we clicked the link to see the plans, the result is show in the image: 'Sorry, we can't find that page on HealthCare.gov'.

    We have tried several times without success.

    From  the Cornfield, on this chilly fall Sunday night Iohn and I sit still  waiting for the Marketplace Exchange web site to work the way it has  been promoted to work.

    Tonight, Iohn and I still have no clue what plans are being offered in Indiana and the associated costs and coverages.
