In this Politico article, Andrew Steinmetz and Zeke Emanuel discuss easy to
use websites to aid in plan selection.Zeke Emanuel was amazed with what he found using Morse’s site.I have written about this site earlier. See http://tinyurl.com/hraplanfinder
Morse’s site will tell you the costs of the plans, premium subsidy, quality
ratings, and provider participation, etc. for all 50 states and D.C.Morse can easily make additions to this site.Morse’s site is http://stevemorse.org/obamacare/obamacare.html
His site also presents all the plan options in one table. No other site has all that information and in one convenient table. And you can change the parameters very easily, e.g, change the state, etc.
