How the Health Care Reform will help the residents of Arizona
According to the Department of Health and Human Services web site, there are 746,000 residents in Arizona who could qualify for premium tax credits for the purchase of Arizona health insurance. Another 853,000 seniors are now eligible for free preventive care services and 151,000 seniors will see their brand-name drug costs (in Medicare Part D) cut in half by 2011.
For Arizona families, the new law provides consumer protections against insurers placing lifetime limitations on coverage. Plus, the insurance companies will not be able to arbitrarily drop coverage like they have done in the past. People who have been turned down for insurance because of pre-existing conditions will soon be a part of a high-risk pool that will enable them to find a health insurance plan that is affordable.
These are just a few of the ways that Health Care Reform laws will benefit the residents of Arizona. If you have questions about a specific health plan or need advice about purchasing coverage in light of these changes, contact Jerry Anderson of Anderson Insurance Services today.
