      By the way.. I am a US citizen but have been working in Canada for the past 7 years. Company is renting our housing for us. Healthcare is “free” here but the cost of housing is way high. So if we retire and want to stay here for a while we would have to move somewhere away from big cities to get reasonable housing.

          I own AKP Health Insurance. I am constantly amazed at how many people are not using the subsidy dollars that they are entitled to on the exchange.

          Also, there is misinformation about who qualifies. A couple of 60 year olds, making over $150,000 a year can still benefit from the ACA.

          For those who’s AGI is high there are private underwritten plans that can fill the void until Medicare.

            ACA works beautifully. I’m 57 and am in my 5th year of it. With PTC subsidies we have never paid more than $350/mo for me and my wife. Best coverage we’ve had as a married couple. Without subsidies, it is indeed a crippling cost. Subsidies are possible due to keeping income low; they aren’t based on net worth, only income.

              ACA is what most people are going to end up using. It might be expensive if you don’t qualify for subsidies but it’s doable.

                An asset for every expense.

                I have a “vehicle duplex”, “food and entertainment triplex”, “vodka fourplex”, “healthcare duplex” “travel (house hack) duplex” etc.

                  Planning to buy health insurance coverage via ACA (Obamacare).

                    We are early retired and using the ACA at a shockingly low cost. If you have control over what you show as “income” then you may be able to get it at a very good cost.

                      Get raped by health insurance providers. I am basically going to work part time for cash just enough to pay for my healthcare premium between 60-65. Then full retire mode.
