I recently retired and signed up for health insurance under the ACA.
The coverage is comparable to what I had before and I am saving about $700 a month. I could have signed up for a little bit better plan and still saved about $500.
Sure this program has some bugs to fix but all new programs have problems starting out.
Since I have been working starting in 1979 I have seen my insurance continue to get worse every time it comes up for renewal. The problem with insurance rests with the companies not someone who is trying to make it better for working people. Why can’t we work together to make a system that works, instead of complaining about a system that is broke and yet no one wants to take on the insurance companies to fix the problem?
I know this will probably not change anyone’s mind, but it is something we all should think about. After all, who pays for the uninsured? Don’t we all end up paying in the end?
