Personally, I am sick of the adversarial relationship between politicians and the health insurance industry. Everyone is promoting their own agendas. The insurance companies keep raising rates in order to make profits, and the insurance commissioner of California continues to make ludicrous politically motivated comments about the big bad health insurance companies. Would it not make sense for a coalition of these people to sit at the same table and figure out a way to offer affordable health insurance to this country instead of creating questionable programs that may continue to drive rates higher? The people I work with and talk to want one thing, and that's for their health insurance rates to be more affordable.
Instead of striving to reach this objective, everyone is playing a game of one-upmanship, and the consumer winds up getting shafted. The biggest challenge for the near future is separating truth from fiction, as we are about to be bombarded with a multi million dollar advertising program from the State of California regarding the new Covered CA health insurance exchange. Whether it's me or someone else, please consider working with a knowledgeable person who can help you sift through this new health insurance maze.
