If you are still waiting to fill out a Marketplace application at Healthcare.gov, you can use the Kaiser Family Foundation calculator or talk to a licensed health insurance provider.

Call 804-744-3345 to speak immediately with a licensed health insurance counselor.

This is what Healthcare.gov has to say about the Obamacare insurance cost and savings calculator:

Affordable Care Act Estimate Calculator

The health insurance costs and savings calculator we link to below provides only an estimate. Your final premiums and costs may differ from the estimates, perhaps significantly, depending on the coverage you select and a given insurer’s pricing policies. You’ll learn your final costs for specific plans when you fill out an application in the Health Insurance Marketplace.

Before you use the Kaiser Family Foundation calculator, there are a few important things to know:

  • The calculator provides a rough estimate of costs for insurance. It will give you an idea of what someone with circumstances like yours could pay for Marketplace insurance in 2014.

  • The calculator accounts for some of the most important factors that determine plan costs in the Marketplace: where you live, family size and ages, and tobacco use. Individual plans weigh these factors differently to determine final prices.

  • The prices are based on a plan in the Silver category. Plans in different categories will likely have higher or lower premiums.

  • You won’t be able to get your exact costs for a specific plan until you fill out a Marketplace application and provide specific details about your income and household. Then you’ll see all of the plans available to you, compare features and prices side-by-side, choose a plan, and enroll.
