It is better. It takes a lot longer until you reach the dreaded 404 message. Figuring out whether the plan I buy allows me to keep my doctor has been remarkably difficult. You hit “provider directory” and get sent to the insurance company’s website, making connecting up the plan with the doctor not particularly easy.

And then you hit the 404 message. I will keep trying. It no longer seems impossible, just difficult. I welcome readers, who, like me, need insurance, to report their experiences on Healthcare.gov in the comments section.
