    I make 90% of the poverty level. I realized today that those who make 100% to 400% of the poverty level are eligible for subsidies, but those of us who make less are not.
    [01:06:30 am]: Shannon
    What options are there for people who make less than 100% of the poverty level?
    [01:06:40 am]: Shannon
    My state has not expanded medicare, so I'm not eligible for that either.

    Thanks for your interest in the Health Insurance Marketplace. We have a lot of visitors trying to use our website right now. This is causing some glitches for some people trying to create accounts or log in. Keep trying, and thanks for your patience. You might have better success during off-peak hours, like later at night or early in the morning. We'll continue working to improve the site so you can get covered!
    [01:13:08 am]: Shannon
    That didn't even come close to addressingmy question.
    [01:14:06 am]: Shannon
    Why are bots used to provide live chat? It's rather useless to have "live" chat when the bot at the other end isn't really alive.

    Oh, good suggestion!

    Yep, that makes sense but our bed is on a breathable boxspring and the bottom of the box springs is about 6 inches above the floor
