HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- At healthcare.gov, you can click on the tab that says 'Individuals and Families.'

On that page you will see a link 'See plans now'.

Click this, answer a few easy questions and you will be taken to a list of 28 different plans and their costs.

Enrollment specialist Andy Bolt said those numbers can't be taken at face value. "It is really important to keep in mind that those prices there don't reflect what they would actually pay if they qualify for the tax credits. If they're interested in seeing if they would be eligible for the tax credits, then they would need to go ahead and fill out an application for the marketplace."

Bolt said that if you fill out the application to see if you are eligible for tax credits or reductions you are not signing up for a plan and are not committed to anything.
