If you’ve tried to buy healthcare insurance since open enrollment began under the Affordable Care Act, you have probably experienced significant delays and frustrations. If you’re like most people, you are coming up with a lot more questions than answers.

If you’d like to hear a clear, concise explanation on whether ObamaCare is the right choice for you, (without any political wrangling or finger pointing), join us as we speak with Mike Bertrand with the iCan Group. Mike talks about how the Affordable Care Act has changed the benefits of all healthcare insurance policies. He points out the difference between buying your insurance through the federal and state sponsored websites and private insurance brokers. You will learn about the different types of policies that are available to consumers, and the income level and type of policy you need to buy in order to qualify for a government subsidy.

Elaine also shares some insights into Caregiver Anger, along with an excerpt from her book, “Letters from Madelyn, Chronicles of a Caregiver”.

Each module features downloadable pdf journal/worksheets, an introductory video, excerpts from live presentations and one or more animated videos.
