I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Aflac. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
I have not brought my political views to the blog very often and I believe it was actually only once before this that I have even mentioned it. If you are on Twitter or have friended me on Facebook then you probably don’t know where I stand. I have switched to the Libertarian party and I admit I am not a fan of the Health Care Reform Act, but regardless of that we need to be informed about Open enrollment. I want to talk with you today about Open Enrollment Concerns that you might have, things that Aflac has done a great job of informing people about.
So many people are confused and do not know what to expect. This new Health Care Reform Act Open Enrollment went live October 1st and there have been many problems and thousands of questions being asked by both employees and businesses about what to expect and what changes will be coming in the upcoming months. Recently Aflac ran survey in which they found out that 60% of employees have not begun to educate themselves on the changes that are coming and nearly a third of employees are confused, worried, and/or unsure about the changes that heir employers will be making to their health insurance plans.
Aflac has a ton of Open Enrollment Resources available online for both employees and small business owners. I urge you to not be one of the people in the 60% that are not informed on what is coming. Do your research and learn what these changes can mean for you and your family because if you do not do this then you might be in for a shock when the changes hit. There has been a lot of talk about insurance premiums and deductibles rising for many people and this is something you will want to watch for- to make sure you have a health insurance policy that is in your monthly budget.
