Health Care Reform

openenrollmenttimeline_______________________________________________________________

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law in 2010, forever changing the way United States citizens receive health insurance. This piece of legislation still has an overwhelming amount of issues that need clarification, but we will continue to provide you with current information, define and explain insurance changes, and how it will affect health care providers, insurers and consumers.

While obtaining health insurance may have changed, reasons to have health insurance have NOT changed:

  • 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.
