Believe it or not: Gail #GotCovered for less than $2 a month
November 8, 2013
Gail Roach of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania had a couple of things to worry about when she retired from the job she’d held for decades at the local school district.
If she wanted to continue her retirement health care option, Gail would have to pay more than $500 each month on her premium. But if she dropped her plan, she was concerned that a pre-existing condition, Type 2 Diabetes, would stand in the way of affordable coverage.
But Gail was in store for good news when she shopped for a new plan in the Health Insurance Marketplace. She called the Marketplace hotline at 1-800-318-2596 and had a trained professional walk her through the options — more than 30 different plans to choose from.
After listening to the options she qualified for, Gail found a plan that fit her needs and definitely fit her budget: With the financial help available, Gail determined that she could get covered for less than $2 a month.
In the end, Gail didn’t have to worry about paying for health insurance or being denied for having a pre-existing condition. Gail was covered in the Health Insurance Marketplace for almost nothing — believe it or not.
