Many middle-income Americans are having trouble finding a healthcare policy they can afford as rates keep rising every year. Health insurance expert Seth Denson says, “We calculate that the U.S. has seen a 10 percent to 20 percent rise in healthcare insurance rates every year since 2014.” He feels the Affordable Care Act affected the rise in prices as well.
Casey Lowrey of Texas Family Benefits says an the average Houston family of five could easily spend around $2,000 a month on health insurance.
Denson says, “Treat healthcare and insurance just like you’d treat anything other commodity you buy. Do your research, compare shop and stay vigilant!” And don’t be afraid to ask for help.
