Ready To Learn About Health Insurance Options and Exchanges?

Last year we visited the emergency room three times. We have two little boys who are extremely active, and while we are used to tumbles and booboos, we rather be safe than sorry and still rush to our local ER anytime something looks like it could leave a scar. Luckily, we have medical insurance through my husband’s job at the present, but not everyone does, and before I was married I had to shop around for my own health insurance…it was utterly confusing and the resources to help me were scarce.

There are few things I think are more important to invest in than health insurance (because you never know), so finding affordable health insurance that can help more people have access to quality healthcare is something that should matter to all of us. Everyone should have health insurance, and you can shop around for the right plan for your family- one that offers quality coverage and is affordable for you too. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) claims to help more people get access to affordable health insurance and guarantees coverage for pre-existing health conditions, and financial assistance for those who qualify.

Find The Right Healthy Insurance, Armed With The Right Information

– Did you know the ACA has raised the Medicaid limits in some states so more people are eligible?

– Did you know that if you do not qualify for Medicaid, but are still struggling, subsidies are offered that may help you?

– Did you know almost 87% of health insurance exchange applicants saved $250 a month or more on their health insurance just last year…that’s a lot of money!

You should know, because it can save you both worry and money when you have the information that helps you make better choices for your family.

United Healthcare is sharing a new campaign to offer tools and assistance to help you learn more about your options and to find the right health plan for you and your family during their open enrollment period. If you’d like to learn more about the Affordable Care Act, visit the UHC website and read more in the privacy of your own home. The ACA may even include savings on your health insurance premiums via a tax credit or a government program, such as Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), or Medicare, but if you don’t know about what’s available to you, you won’t save money.

Open Enrollment Ends February 15th!
