Letter: My Experience With Obamacare

To the Editor:

I would like to add my voice to those commenting about Vermont’s Health Connect. While navigating the website took patience and perseverance, it was well worth it, as I have managed to get better Blue Cross coverage for my family for much lower monthly premiums than we have been paying. Not every employer can afford to cover its workers, and not everyone is eligible for coverage through a place of employment. But everyone should have access to good and affordable care. It will cost us less as a society if people feel they can afford preventative care and will seek help before a health issue becomes a crisis. I encourage everyone to explore the Health Connect options — either on the website or with the navigators. Let’s give the Affordable Care Act a chance!
