Buying through a broker as opposed to the .gov exchange may not give you access to the same doctors. Even if you are not getting a subsidy. Verify with your doctors first if they are in network and if there are restrictions on the method to sign up. I know people that got screwed when they used a broker because they could not get through the dysfunctional healthcare.gov site. Their doctor would not accept the same plan because they signed up through a broker, not the exchange.

I am pointing to the details that are important in the all-too-short-sign-up-period forced on us when people concentrating on getting thru the holidays. Providers, brokers and healthcare.gov don’t warn people about these problems until it is too late. Often not discovered until your worthless insurance kicks in next year and your doctor suddenly tells you no dice, “I’m only in the network if you sign up via the exchange” for the exact same plan. The system continues screwing the consumer.
