WSJ: You can’t see the Premium Prices, because the Gov’t doesn’t Want you to See them
The only health insurance prices that the public can see, are those with the subsidy applied.
So, you have to be eligible before seeing plan options — which means they are masking the prices to cover up the premium shock caused by ObamaCare and only want Americans to see the price with the subsidy, for political reasons. From the WSJ’s HealthCare.gov Flaws Found, Fixes Eyed:
“Federal officials had debated internally whether to allow users to view plans without applying, according to people familiar with the process.
An HHS spokeswoman said the agency wanted to ensure that users were aware of their eligibility for subsidies that could help pay for coverage, before they started seeing the prices of policies.”
