Affordable Care Act- Real Life Examples
Real Life Examples of the Affordable Care Act
The “Affordable Care Act” is coming soon to a theater near you! Now playing are the renewal rates that are beginning to come to those who currently have health insurance coverage.
Our Real-Life Story
Here is a real-life story: at our office, we have received our rate increase last week and here is an example of what the “Affordable Care Act” has done for us who are paying health insurance premiums. One of our employees, a healthy young male, age 29, went from $121.00 a month to $230.00 a month. One of the owners, age 62, is going from $798.00 a month to a whopping $1300.00 a month!!!!! This is under the Affordable Care Act.
According to a website that explains how the health care law benefits us, it says as the number one thing it will “increase access to affordable care” and number 2 is “making care more affordable”. Look folks, this stuff on these websites is written by someone hired as a writer to put information out there that theoretically should be true, but this is our business, every day, 5 days a week, every year and has been for the last 30+ years. Every day we talk to real people who are experiencing the same things we experienced ourselves, huge rate increases!
How We Helped A Family in Colorado and Nevada
We do have good news! Every day we are able to help people find coverage that lowers their premiums and for many actually increases their benefits across the board. Here are some examples of people we helped just this week: a family of four in CO, received an increase to a total premium of $1200/month; we found them a plan with an A+ rated, national carrier with higher benefits for $800.00/month. Another couple in NV received their renewal increase making their new premium an un-affordable $800.00 monthly, we were able to give them 3 times the benefits at $460.00 monthly. Real examples or academic theory; which one do you trust? We are helping lots of Americans solve the problem with affordable health care and as the time is approaching when we must buy it or pay the penalties, it is better to get your plans in place now, than wait for more increases. There are many unknowns facing all of us as we approach the October 1, 2013 deadline; take control of your own health plan now, there is help.
