    I called the marketplace they told me that I could not get health care for February because it was to late and i had to pay a month in advance so in January I signed up for March with Molina Healthcare , they took my payment for March sent me a bill for April that I paid , then without me knowing they applied it to February in the middle of March so I had health care in February with them but did not know it, once I talked to the marketplace supervisor name Patrice Monroe and explain to her that her organization told me that I could not get Healthcare in February because I did not meet the deadline , she replied that there was special exceptions then I asked her to read me the special exceptions and she refused so the outcome is I paid for February and didn’t even know I had insurance and was never billed for February.what a scam

    Here is my experience. Everyone says that you only have to pay a fixed amount every year, especially for wellness checks. I had a wellness exam done and got a bill for $2,500. I called the insurance company to find out what happened and went through every item on the bill with them. The bottom line is that the insurance company can decide what they consider a wellness check exam, and everything they don’t like, you get billed for. Also, if you get billed for it, it does not go against your deductible or the yearly allowance. And yes, they will send the bill collectors after you.

    Also, I just found out this year that if I go to my local hospital while on Medi-cal, that if I get blood work done, the hospital does not accept payment from Medi-cal. But they will give you a 40% discount.

    Just finished doing my taxes for 2016, Am on fixed Social security income with wife not working. I paid $232/month for the year as my share with my income for my wife. Because I had $5000 deductible, I had to use out of my 401K money to pay the deductible. Because of this added income from the 401K my Federal tax bill went from $0 to $880. Thanks Obamacare a non deductible expense from the federal government aid while still using health coverage.
