Save 30% Or More on Medical Insurance

If the cost of Medical Insurance has you down, this might be the option for you.

In 2018 Medical Insurance rates grew by more than 30% for all the companies listed on  If your income is too much for you to qualify for a subsidy every month is a challenge.  You don’t want to be uninsured and you don’t want to pay the penalty.   A family of 4 is paying well over $1,000 per month for coverage, and not very good coverage at that.

Would you be interested in a plan that cost a lot less, lets you see the doctor as often as you need to, and you have no copays to pay when you do? 

Then the EverMed Direct Primary Care (DPC) + Unity Healthshare is the answer you are looking for.  See doctor as often as you need to with no copays or percentages.  Covers annual physicals, mammograms, chronic and urgent care needs.

Affordable Care Act - Open Enrollment November 1 – January 15

Affordable Care Act (ACA) 
aka Obamacare
Open Enrollment
November 1 – January 15

You may have been hearing about open enrollment for the last few weeks.  That was for people over the age of 65.  Now is the time for people under age 65. 

This is going to be a challenging year when it comes to Medical Insurance, rates are going up 30 to 50%,  the current administration is determined to get rid of the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare.

I am sure you know about the attempts to repeal the ACA,  this year things will remain the same however, many carriers will not be offering coverage and the  remaining plans may require you change your doctor.  

Good news is if your income falls below 400% of Federal Poverty Level you will still receive your premium reduction and you will not be impacted too much since subsidies or tax credits will keep your premiums under control.

          Household #             400% OF FPL 

               1                           $  48,240 
               2                           $  64,960 
               3                           $  81,680 
               4                           $  98,400 
               5                           $115,120 
               6                           $131,840 
               7                           $148,560 
               8                           $165,280 

But,  if your income exceeds these amounts prepare to be upset.  Premiums are increasing, you can expect sticker shock.   Regence, Bridgespan and Lifewise will not be offering coverage.  Many of your doctors will be Out-of-Network in the plans that remain. 

If you own a Business you may want to consider a group insurance plan.  You would have more options and access to doctors you want to see. 

There are Accident and Illness policys. These plans are not Medical Insurance but they will help with the bills.  You can get an Accident policy for under $20 per month,  or an entire family for under $50.  Many people do these plans with Medical Insurance since deductibles are so high.

There are policys for Cancer,  Heart Attack, Stroke and Critcal Illness.  These plans let you to choose how much coverage, $5,000 to $500,000 or more.
