Buying Health Insurance After Healthcare Reform: Webinar
There is so much confusion on the horizon since the healthcare reform bill was signed into law. With the growing number of medical bankruptcies, how will you know you will not be joining those ranks?
By: Butch Zemar
This is why Elite Benefits of America is putting on a webinar on July 28th at 10am CST about buying health insurance after healthcare reform. "You may have already have a trusted advisor for your health insurance, and I appreciate that. However, you may enjoy this call. I will share with you some of my own insights on how to help prevent medical bankruptcy by insuring against it." Says Butch Zemar, Chief Sales Officer at Elite Benefits of America.
Medical bankruptcies are on a rise according to a Harvard University study*. Updated in 2009, they indicated that 62% of bankruptcies are due to medical bankruptcies. "The sad thing is that nearly three-quarters of them had health insurance at the time of the onset*. So was health insurance the real problem?" Zemar adds. The study also mentioned that medical expenses reached an out-of-pocket of just under $14,000*. This includes deductibles, co-pays and services not covered by insurance. Yes, there are services not covered by insurance or you exceeded your inter nal limit of the policy - virtually every policy out there has limits. This money can add up but I'm sure most, not all, working Americans can manage that size of a bill if their health depended on it.
So what is the real cause that put these Americans over the edge to file medical bankruptcy? If most of them had health insurance the out-of-pocket was manageable, then why so many bankruptcies?
"There are already little known things that can help you avoid medical bankruptcy. It's important that you are on this call. Space is limited", Zemar continues. Those who are interested in in attending the webinar will need to go to http://www.EliteBenefits.net/
