Lucie Got Covered for $15.10 a Month!
November 4, 2014
Lucie in Texas hadn’t had health insurance in over a decade.
That’s why she was so glad when Obamacare came around. She signed up for a Silver plan that’s just $15.10 a month with financial help (which saves her about $215 a month!). And she got dental coverage for an extra $19 a month.
Not too shabby!
Now, Lucie can get the quality care she needs for her high blood pressure. And she doesn’t have to worry about medical bills piling up
Wondering if you could get help paying for your health insurance? Go ahead — see for yourself!
Great Coverage, Great Savings
December 5, 2013
Before the Affordable Care Act, Amy Lynn Smith of Michigan had three strikes against her when buying health insurance: living with type 2 diabetes, being a woman, and being self-employed.
Although her current insurance plan covers a lot, annual price hikes have driven the cost up to $1,400 a month plus out-of-pocket expenses.
That’s all changed now that she can no longer be discriminated against for having a pre-existing condition or being a woman, and isn’t stuck paying top dollar to buy an individual plan.
Here’s what she wrote after enrolling in a new gold-level plan at Healthcare.gov:
“Starting January 1, I’ll be paying $530 a month for almost identical coverage. Actually, my annual deductible is less — $150 instead of $250. My prescription co-pay will be just a tad higher, but that still won’t bring me anywhere near what I’m paying per month now. The cost to see a doctor is just about the same if I stay in-network, and the nationwide network is huge. All the other benefits are comparable, with the added bonus of programs to help me better manage my diabetes. Plus, I can keep every single one of my doctors.”
Amy estimates she’ll save nearly $10,000 a year with a plan that covers 80 percent of her expenses. Plus, her coverage can never be canceled or limited.
With her new plan, Amy not only has the peace of mind that comes with knowing she’s covered, no matter what. She also has more money in her pocket to spend on other things.
Virginia’s #GotCovered Story: Relief at Half the Price
October 18, 2013
Right now, Virginia Lindahl pays $600 each month for health insurance that barely covers the care she needs and leaves her with huge out-of-pocket costs. But because Virginia found a new plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace, all of that will change on January 1st.
With the new plan she chose, Virginia’s monthly bill will soon go down to $300 a month — half her current rate — for far better coverage. After nine years of searching for better options, this new insurance comes as a huge relief.
Virginia is like so many other Americans who can finally choose a health insurance plan that’s right for them. Here’s what she had to say about her new health insurance:
