I’d like to introduce myself to the letter writer who doesn’t know anyone who has benefited from the Affordable Care Act or “Obamacare” (Letters, July 17).
Under our new health insurance policy, our rates declined by 33 percent and our benefits for preventative care have improved dramatically. I agree that not many people know this because the health insurance companies are not advertising the new policies.
I am thankful to a progressive, research-inclined neighbor and a great local insurance broker for steering me to the new policy because my insurance company did not make it easy. I advise anyone who buys their own health insurance to research the matter carefully. We are glad we did.
