I'm not surprised at all, but so many people are for some reason.
Currently in 2013 I have very good coverage. I get Health, Prescription, Vision and Dental with great coverage (100% Preventative, most other things covered at 60-80%, prescriptions never cost me more than 20) and for all of it I pay less than 100 a month for just myself.
I just got married this year, but if I had added my wife (who has her own, pretty good but not as good insurance) the cost per month would have been 250 per month.
For 2014, all either of our companies are offering are HSA (Health Savings Accounts). Which IMO are terrible. It's pretty much just putting money into a savings account to pay the doctors, the only advantage over doing it yourself is that it's pretax income going in instead of post tax. Granted there is a max out of pocket (of like 6 grand) so the most you'll ever have to spend in a year is 6K. Course the government only allows you to put 3300 into the account per year.
I've been trying to see what's available on the exchange out of curiosity but they can't even keep the website running.
