So you are allowed to purchase your own insurance and if you purchase a plan and pay the premium without subsidy that is exactly what the new rules appear to be directing you to do.

A lot of people are going to get an education in terms like, coverage, deductibles, stop loss cap, network vs non-network, etc........

Each case is different and we shouldn’t link every health insurance thread any more than we’d link every thread related to every CR1 or K1 applicant.
 

Mods for you guys some of these are specific case questions and do not belong in the “whining about the new rules” megathread.  Use judgement.

 

@OP the issue isn’t buying insurance on the exchanges it is collecting subsidized premiums to do it.  If your petitioner is enjoying subsidized premiums it appears that this is already a strike against based on the question “you or any member of your household...”


So you are allowed to purchase your own insurance and if you purchase a plan and pay the premium without subsidy that is exactly what the new rules appear to be directing you to do.

 

I appreciate that so much! Thank you for reading my questions and understanding what i sought and also answering it as simply as possible!

Since the following statement is about Kaiser,  then yes it concerns you as she qualifies on a low-income

 

Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing high-quality, affordable health care services to all the communities we serve. ... Kaiser Permanente's Charitable Health Coverage (CHC) program is open to low-income individuals and families who have no access to public or private health care coverage.

There are lots of people who buy O Care with no tax credit.

Anyone can buy their own insurance /Just need to be aware of the costs

but there is so much more to know like what is the yearly deductible and do you need a coinsurance policy as the main one only covers 80 % of hospital visits

it gets quite expensive

 

Here is everything you need to know about the costs of individual health insurance. According to eHealth, the average of an individual health insurance plan is $440 for an individual
