We promise they’re quick and easy! But if you’re in a rush, here are the top four things you should know about health care:
Health insurance covers more than 80 percent of the total cost of medical care.
Expanded health insurance benefits – like housing, employment, education, and food services – are shown to decrease emergency health spending. They’re a top priority for health insurance providers, who are expanding these programs every year.
Health insurance providers approve more than 98 percent of all claims.
Insurers negotiate with drug companies, doctors, and hospitals to lower premiums for patients.
Health care shouldn't be complicated and confusing.
That’s why we’re providing more tools and resources to improve what’s working and fix what isn’t in today’s health care system. We’re committed to working together to make health care more affordable, protect pre-existing conditions, and strengthen benefits. Because your health is our top priority.
