Well, I checked the healthcare.gov website today and actually got results. I decided to choose the Platinum Plan details because it most matches what I get with my Medicare Advantage Plan. BTW, I got over thirty total results for all plan types (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum). I did not see anything about a subsidy for me. Anyway, it costs $405 per month for myself and 80 percent coverage. Plus, my deductibles and copays. My Medicare Advantage plan is $104 per month and covers 100 percent except copays and "donut hole" for prescriptions which amount to $300 per month for me. Bottom line is my Medicare Advantage Plan is better than the Platinum Plan being offered. I don't like playing the percentage game and much prefer fixed costs anyway. My conclusion is the plan offered by the exchange is not horrible, but also not cheap for what you get. Hope others have good luck with the exchange.
