新年度醫保費將兩位數上漲 麻州健康連絡者10/25教你找廉宜計畫

(Boston Orange 周菊子綜合報導)來自華府的消息稱,奧巴馬政府已證實,經由HealthCare.gov網站出售給消費者的醫療保險,明年保費將大漲。
在納稅人提供補助前,由聯邦政府所營運網上市場的中等程度醫療保險計畫,保費將增加大約25%。
在聯邦政府市場上提供服務的保險公司數目,將從232降到167。跌幅約為28%。
聯邦政府官員表示,儘管這數目看來不怎樣,但是依照設計會隨保費一起上漲的補助,將保護大多數消費者免於價格驚嚇。他們也認為想要找便宜醫保計畫的人仍然能夠找得到。
新年度的醫療保險,將從11月1日起開始受理投保,人們已經可以開始尋找適合自己的保費及醫保計畫。
麻州辦理聯邦政府醫療保險的半官方機構,麻州健康聯絡者(Massachusetts Health Connector)為協助州民在購買新年度醫療保險時做更好的準備,將在10月25日這天,舉辦為期一天的”隱藏的寶藏(Hidden Gems)”活動,派人分別到全州15個地點,介紹在麻州醫療保險市場中可以找得到,既符合各人家庭或個人需要,保費又適中的醫療保險計畫。
醫療健康聯絡者將為符合條件人士找到保費,掛號費都低,甚至不需自掏腰包付扣繳額的醫療保險計畫。
目前已經由麻州健康聯絡者購買醫療保險計畫的人,也可以重新尋找價格更合理,更適合各自需要的計畫。
在昆士市的介紹活動,將於下午3:30,在聯合第一教區教堂,也是亞當斯墓穴(The Adams Crypt, United First Parish Church, 1306 Hancock St, Quincy, MA 02169)所在地舉行。
