The calculator is if you want to take advantage of the exchanges; there's nothing requiring you to use them. If your current coverage is less, you can keep that. If your current provider decides to raise rates, that's on them. Theoretically, the existence of the exchanges is supposed to foster competition both within the exchange and with companies outside the exchange. If your current provider deems it necessary to raise rates to protect their bottom line, perhaps this is an opportunity for you to shop around. It's not like there's not going to be options =)
