Young, healthy, in-your-prime Millennials. Where health care costs are concerned, we’re among the least risky demographic, as a whole, right? The Affordable Care Act will favor our generation’s overall vitality — right?
Health insurance is a confusing thing. The fact is, increased access to coverage doesn’t necessarily mean decreased premiums for the masses. In fact, costs are set to bump up significantly this year. You voted, you care, so SHOUTAmerica is making sure you have information to continue being an engaged citizen now that the next term has been signed, sealed and delivered. Just what is a “balanced insurance pool”? What is an “age band rating”? And, more importantly, how can you be sure that we’re moving in the right direction for a healthy, empowered future?
SHOUT created Young Americans for Affordable Health Care as a way to find out how it adds up for you. Get the facts, calculate your costs and let Congress know you are paying attention. In his inauguration speech yesterday, President Obama touched on the changes ahead: “We must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. But we reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future.”
