The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) 101
Making complex things like the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) easy to understand is one of our passions at Lift Advocacy. Health and well being is one of the most important things in our lives and in the lives of those around us, and it is something we all need to understand better. We have put together some short videos to help educate and empower you. Enjoy! Please let us know if we can answer any questions you might have. We are here to help.
Health Insurance Basics
Here are some of the topics you can discuss with us. (1) Deductibles--what are they and how do they work? (2) Out-of-Pocket expenses--why is this concept misunderstood so often? (3) Co-insurance--why would I need co-insurance if I already have insurance (hint: co-insurance is not what you think it is) (4) Provider networks--the doctors, hospitals, and labs that work with your insurance company.
Although we do not yet have materials to explain these and other important concepts, we can answer your questions if you call.
