Jilly, you are not alone. I have always had my own health insurance and as far as I know I am still covered. I hate to think of having to go through the exchanges to get coverage.
It is a shame that the systems were not up and running properly. I am sure there are people who desperately need insurance, but maybe the exchanges should be took offline for a month until they get the whole thing working properly. I certainly hope they can, anyway.
Are you planning on signing up for insurance? Has anyone here tried and how did it go? Please share to help us all out, if you can.
