Cale P. - Douds, IA - August 21, 2017

Dear Insurance Commissioner Ommen,

I am the 5th generation on my family farm, and need you to pass the stopgap measure so that I can afford health insurance.

Sincerely,
Cale P.


Kathy W. - Belmond, IA - August 21, 2017

Dear Insurance Commissioner Ommen,

I support the "Iowa Stopgap Measure."  Without it, people like myself will not be able to purchase health insurance in Iowa.  Please give this serious thought and consideration.  Thank you.

Sincerely,
Kathy W.


Rachel M. - Waukon, IA - August 21, 2017

Dear Insurance Commissioner Ommen,

I support the Iowa Stopgap Measure. As someone who will be losing coverage January 1, this is extremely important to me.

Sincerely,
Rachel M.


Connie F. - Audubon, IA - August 21, 2017

Dear Insurance Commissioner Ommen,

Greg W. - Sidney, IA - August 21, 2017

Dear Insurance Commissioner Ommen,

We have two small children and I prefer they have health insurance. Without it, we would be in debt for what doctors charge. I know of a handful of farmers, the majority of them Farm Bureau members, that will lose their insurance coverage on January 1, 2018 if something isn't done.  This is why I support the "Iowa Stopgap Measure". It is important for hard working middle class Americans that are providing the food for our tables and clothes for our backs to be covered for years to come. Please act to approve Iowa's stopgap plan to ensure that thousands of Iowans aren't left without health insurance options.

Sincerely,
Greg W.


James B. - Ringsted, IA - August 21, 2017

Dear Insurance Commissioner Ommen,

Health insurance for tens of thousands of Iowans is in crisis. Over 72,000 Iowans who purchase their own health insurance are in danger of losing their coverage in 2018. This includes over 6,000 Iowa Farm Bureau members whose plans are subject to the Affordable Care Act requirements.
My wife and I run our families crop and livestock farm, we are self-employed, and have seen our health insurance costs sky rocket over the last 8 years, now we are told that we may loss our families access to health insurance altogether in 2018 if something is not done. We have many friends and neighbors here in Emmet County who are in the same situation as our family, and support the " Iowa Stopgap Measure"
I strongly urge you to approve Iowa's stop gap plan to ensure that thousands of Iowa's farm families like ours aren't left without health insurance options.

Sincerely,
James B.


Brian R. - Estherville, IA - August 21, 2017

Dear Insurance Commissioner Ommen,

I am a young farmer self employed with my family farm. We are Farm Bureau Members abd have had our insurance rates increase dramatically  over the past few years. I fear soon I won't have any choice for health insurance options. I support the Iowa Stopgap Measure and ask that you act to approve the plan to ensure Iowans have health Insurance options. It would be a shame if thousands of Iowa families like mine were to lose their health care options.

Sincerely,
Brian R.


Susan D. - Sibley, IA - August 21, 2017

Dear Insurance Commissioner Ommen,

I support giving additional health insurance options to those who will be losing their coverage in 2018.

Sincerely,
Susan D.


Iowa State Representative Megan Jones - Sioux Rapids, IA - August 21, 2017

To whom it my concern:
I write to express my support of Iowa's Stopgap Measure that will stabilize the individual insurance market and give 72,000 Iowans a health insurance option in 2018. Doing nothing is not an option as it could potentially leave 72,000 hardworking Iowans without health insurance.
Thank you for your time and consideration,

Rep. Megan Jones
State Representative

State Representative Gary Worthan - Storm Lake, IA - August 21, 2017

The Federal Government needs to repeal and replace Obamacare posthaste.  In the interim, stopgap measures as suggested by Governor Reynolds must be implemented so that Iowans are able to maintain coverage until remedies can be put in place.

I am fortunate to have health coverage as part of my compensation as a State Representative but I hear from my friends and neighbors, mostly self employed farmers, what their health insurance premiums are costing them and from personal experience I know the toll this is taking on independent entrepreneurs.

My son, who farms and has a trucking business, has had his health insurance canceled twice in the last two years and has been notified that his current policy will be canceled for a third time in December as the carrier is withdrawing from Iowa.  All three of these cancelations are a result of Obamacare outlawing the policy he had in place and forcing him into an Obamacare policy.  Last year when he was canceled the best Obamacare policy that he was offered for his family of four was a policy that cost $1800 per month with an $8000 individual deductible.  $21,600 in premiums and $32.000 in out of pocket deductibles if all four members of his family max out. $53,600 in health insurance expense with out a dime of return.  I can predict that would exceed his entire net income in this year of drought and low prices.

This waiver is essential to the health and well being of many Iowans.

State Representative Gary Worthan
