I support the Iowa Stopgap Measure.  I am not affected... for many years I had worked for corporate America, and had excellent benefits.  Now, I have joined our family farm operation and was then to purchase insurance as the other 6,000 Farm Bureau members.  I have seen my insurance premiums sky rocket, and although have been perfectly healthy, I'm very aware of the need for good insurance.  This economy is hitting small town people hard--- and this insurance issue can break many of these self employed, small business owners and farm families!

Please help something get done--- health insurance is a necessity.  I'm VERY disappointed to lose BCBS - and hope they re-enter the scene as they are my preferred carrier.  I want the flexibility to have a good provider network, and value MAYO clinic and other specialists if needs arise.  Please help us keep health insurance--- we are professional and working Iowan's, that deserve to have that available to us!

Sincerely,
Kristin B.

Mary H. - Arvada, CO - August 17, 2017

Thank you Iowa Insurance Commissioner for understanding the non subsidized healthy individual insurance predicament. We are in the process of relocating to Dubuque mid 2018. We are renting in that city while we transition a small business and sell home in Co. I have followed your Stopgap Measure and listened to you at one of the public hearings online. Currently the least expensive Medica premium for 2017 in Dubuque for my age 62 is $965/month. My husband is on Medicare and a Purple Heart veteran so his healthcare is affordable(grateful). The Medica(as you know only individual provider for 2018 so far in Dubuque)rate increases for 2018 have caused me to question that I may have to go w/o coverage which is very concerning. I am one of the older healthier people we need but very high deductible Bronze coverage nearing $1500/mo is not sustainable even at upper middle class income.  You are probably the only person I have heard or read that speaks to the non subsidized , healthy , older individuals buying insurance and understands the financial burden as well. My situation is unique but there may be another person in similar situation getting ready to relocate to Iowa so thought it important to speak up. Thank you for your work . We need more individuals with your level of intelligence and care about healthcare working to make it for all no matter your income, health, etc.


Kristin B. - Story City, IA - August 17, 2017
