Will you be sticking with your current health plan or signing up for a new one through Obamacare? Or something else?

I am a state employee and get insurance for myself and entire family through work for $28/month. And it's excellent insurance that covers things like unlimited physical therapy sessions with no co-pay. It's pretty awesome.

If you have a plan there's no need to switch. The program is mainly for people who previously weren't offered and/or couldn't afford insurance.

I have a decent plan through work, but there is only an employer contribution for me. For my wife and kids, they have to pay the full price. So to insure the whole family through my work insurance is $1300 with no tax credit. Through Obamacare is $1300 with $600 tax credit. But the plan might not be as good for me, and I'm not sure if you can mix and match. BTW, we don't have $1300 each month so the wife and kids are uninsured right now.

Except of course that over time all current plans will be forced out of the market. The trend has begun already.

You should find out before you sign anything or spend money.

After the last few years I've had, my insurance has really been nice to have. Course even with it, an ambulance ride still cost me $900.

I already had insurance, but my company is offering more options now so I'm going to switch to a Health Savings Account because it's less shitty than paying premiums for the privilege of having a deductible if I ever had to use it for something other than doctor visits.

Hmm, do you happen to be one of those who "hope" for the zombie apocalypse?
