South Florida consumers who are able to penetrate the "Obamacare" computer system are sorting through dozens of health insurance plans and finding some of the lowest — and some of the highest — premiums in the country. The result is an odd mix of sticker shock and pleasant surprises. After bumping into the usual error messages during six days of failed attempts, Ed Davis, 55, of Coconut Creek, finally got into, the government website for buying insurance, and immediately liked what he saw: 132 plans at a range of prices. He picked an Aetna plan that offers a $6,000 deductible, $20 co-pays for primary-care visits and $10 co-pays for generic drugs — all at $327 a month after applying a tax credit that reduced his cost by $165.
