How Affordable IS the Affordable Health Care Act?
The deadline to enroll in insurance through government health exchanges is March 31st. Millions of Americans must now buy health insurance and yet polls show many are still confused about Obamacare, including how it will affect their pocket books. With more individuals paying for their own policy, they could be in for serious sticker shock. But there are options for shopping for health insurance other than their state exchange orhealthcare.gov. Unlike a gasoline or real estate index, there has been no readily available data to educate people on how much they should expect to pay. The brand new eHealth Price Index* shows for the first time what it will cost you for an off-exchange health Insurance plan and what others in your area are paying as well.
eHealth Consumer care expert Carrie McLean shares specific data on what the average cost of a plan is, and offers practical tips on how to save money when shopping for a new plan.
