Bronze, silver, gold, and platinum are not just precious metals. They are now precious choices of health care plans for the uninsured
As of Oct. 1, 2013, it was possible to logon to the healthcare.gov Web site or call (866) 547-2793 and obtain insurance. The telephone number will reach a healthcare navigator who will help you plan your insurance coverage. If completed by Dec. 15, 2013, you will be insured as of Jan. 1, 2014. Those who enroll after March 31, 2014 will pay a penalty.
Four price options allow people to choose the coverage that they can afford. This is a huge step toward universal healthcare for all in the United States.
A big fringe benefit to the nation is that the United States will be more competitive in world markets because the cost of healthcare will no longer be included in the price of American goods.
