Question: I’m 63 and enrolled in a retiree health plan from my former employer. Can I look for better coverage and subsidies in the Marketplace?
Answer: Yes. You can drop your retiree coverage and enroll in a subsidized Covered California plan as long as you do so during the Open Enrollment period (ends January 31, 2017). However, it looks like Obamacare subsidies will not be available for more than another year or two. You may want to hang on to your retiree health plan after all.
