Health care reform is taking us on a previously unprecedented journey.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA), was upheld by the United States Supreme Court, and will forever change the way health insurance is provided to Americans. This piece of legislation still has an overwhelming amount of issues that need clarification, but we will continue to do our due diligence to provide you with up to date information and explain the new rules and how it will affect health care providers, insurers and consumers.

While the way health insurance is obtained may change the reasons as to why you should have it remain the same:

  • Insurance companies negotiate prices with service providers, such as doctors and hospitals, which means you get a better deal on your health care.
  • Health care costs are the leading cause of bankruptcies. Having insurance can protect your savings.
  • Studies show that insured people are healthier because they make regular trips to their doctor. This process means that they are able to prevent future health problems while treating any current health problems in a timely fashion.
