Your Map to the Healthcare Maze
I was approached by small business owners asking about affordable health insurance option. So I thought, “what the heck” and I compared group health insurance with Obamacare. And guess what?!? Same result! Obamacare was a better deal than traditional health insurance through employment!
Getting health insurance was my top priority when I left my corporate job. And health insurance was also the biggest anchor holding me back from leaving my corporate job! So as much as I wanted to work on my new business, I spent considerable time and effort going over my options for health insurance. Read this blog to see how COBRA compares with Obamacare. You’ll be surprised with the result!
Figuring out health insurance was the biggest concern I had when I left my corporate job. This concern is shared by almost every other entrepreneur I meet. This blog post lays out the options for anyone needing health insurance when they change jobs. I use personal experiences and actual insurance costs, in order to help you identify the best option for you and your family.
In this blog, I will help you navigate the healthcare system, including your healthcare benefits. Think of me like your captain on this journey. But rather than tell you the what, why, and how to navigate the healthcare system. I thought it best to start by telling you a little bit about myself and how I’ve navigated the healthcare system for my healthcare needs.
Everyone remembers their first day at work. As a newly minted pharmacist, I went in thinking that I’d change the world, one patient at a time. But within my first hour, I met someone that would end up changing my world instead. A mom came in with a prescription for her daughter. The prescription was for a common antibiotic that we’ve all probably taken before. However, this mom did not have insurance and the prescription came out to $40. The mom did not have $40 to pay for that prescription. So I did what I thought was right and took out $40 to pay for her daughter’s prescription. The daughter was grinning from ear-to-ear and the mom was on the verge of tears. The mom left with a prescription that her daughter needed; and I felt like I was making a difference in the world.
