During the health care debate there has been no shortage of press coverage. Many of these articles and press releases coming from opposing sides of the debate with vested interests in the outcome. With the debate scheduled to resume in Washington after Labor Day Florida health insurance brokerage East Coast Health Insurance has seen a dangerous trend of people letting their current health insurance policies lapse or bypassing coverage entirely. In many of the cases, this is because of the confusing and opposing news stories that lead people to believe that they will wake up one morning very soon and have free health coverage.
Mr. Courtland Twyman one of the principal partners at ECHealthInsurance has said repeatedly that the health reform debate is, causing massive confusion from both clients and their brokers.
"Coupled with the crippling recession and the still rising costs of health insurance coverage, it is getting easier to let health insurance either lapse or just not bother with it often in the hope that a new Federal program that will offer free coverage," said Mr. Twyman.
"The danger of canceling your medical insurance policy or going without health coverage are very understated, as once you develop a condition it will become impossible to insure yourself with the current laws on the books " he goes on to say.
East Coast Health Insurance has been quite vocal in their support for health reform as they make it quite clear on their website that without cost controls, the economy cannot sustain the growth of the health care industry. The company has even gone so far as to offer the current public health assistance program guides all online at http://ECHealthInsurance.com
Their website also quotes a surprising figure that nearly 35% of the uninsured in Florida actually qualify for a public assistance plan if they just know where to look.
ECHealthInsurance.com has written a guide to obtaining public assistance programs in Florida at their website, as well as offering all reputable providers of health insurance in Florida company quotes and plan information. They also are on the cutting edge of health reform and are now affiliated with the Cover Florida plans as well as the new Miami-Dade Blue plan which they hope is part of the answer to the health reform debate. Their Miami health insurance section also includes a listing of every free clinic and social service in Miami-Dade County.
