I haven't forgotten about this...

Unfortuntely, there is no easy way to toggle age when looking at quotes. However, you can get some quotes through insurer web sites or places like einsurance.com to get an idea - there aren't many questions to answer. I wouldn't bother with healthcare.gov unless eligible for a subsidy (and I believe you need a social security number that can be validated through a credit bureau).

In our case, I think we are going to renew our existing plan with Florida Blue. The only cheaper plans they offer are in a different network that excludes nearby hospitals and at least one or two of our doctors. I looked into Ambetter but they exclude all our doctors. Molina Health is HMO only (also excluding our doctors). None of Cigna / Humana / Aetna offer plans in Palm Beach County, FL. United Healthcare offers only short-term plans and supplemental plans here.
Thanks. Will check into this. I looked into the Marketplace since we last spoke and prices were about $3000/mo for them, which isn't really an option.

Really needs to be $1000 or less a month to make sense.
