Letter: We found terrific savings from health law
My wife Susan and I enrolled in the Affordable Care Act Wednesday night. I am 63, and she is 54. The website was very easy to get through, and the questions were quite simple.
We will have a total monthly premium of $106 for the best of the three Silver plans offered. The Bronze plan would have had cost nothing because the tax credit would have paid for it all. This is going to be great for all those people on low incomes who never had a chance to get insurance. And for those middle class folks with properties who live week-to-week with no health insurance, it’s going to be a great help to them.
We were so happy with the savings, we splurged and went to Delta Dental and bought its Preferred Plan.
Sure, it doesn’t beat single payer, but it beats unfettered capitalism’s options of the past.
