With all the negative news surrounding the Health Insurance Marketplaces, it sure is nice to hear success stories.
WBTV in Charlotte ran this story last Friday. This couple is going to save 3 to 4 thousand dollars a year and get better benefits through their successful use of Healthcare.gov. And the money they’re saving has nothing to do with a government subsidy because they don’t qualify.
Then this weekend the Governors of Washington, Kentucky and Connecticut, all states that are running their own health insurance marketplaces, authored an opinion editorial in The Washington Post that included this statement:
“The Affordable Care Act has been successful in our states because our political and community leaders grasped the importance of expanding health-care coverage and have avoided the temptation to use health-care reform as a political football.”
As more of these positive stories come to light, the supporters of Obamacare will hopefully stop being so defensive. This is going to work. Just be patient.
