The story about Chad being a solid “I’ll think about it” instead of a confirmed sale is lulzy (the government is just a down and out salesguy who has to flub sales reports, ha ha) but focus on the rates. $225 for a 21 year old. Can someone really afford that on his income? And he in on the lowest plan meaning he will have to pay 40% of all medical expenses until he reaches the out of pocket maximum of which is thousands and thousands of dollars. That’s a lot of money.
Plans prior to Obamacare or that are exempt from Obamacare (like the ones sold by my company) would be less than a quarter of that rate for someone this young. Try $50 a month.
