Liz Benz began trying to access the Obamacare website to purchase health care back in October. The first time, she could not even get on the website. After many failed attempts, she was able to visit the website, but was not able to shop for plans. On her third attempt, she was finally able to shop for plans, only to find that the plans offered were too expensive and that her rates will be soaring under the new Obamacare health exchange.
Benz needs insurance for her husband, who has a pre-existing condition and whose job does not offer coverage. The cheapest option that Benz found for her husband is more than $400 a month, with a sky high $5000 deductible.
