I’d say if you’ve got money, you can get high-deductible insurance again.
For people who’ve been without health insurance during the pandemic, relief is in sight.
In January, President Joe Biden signed an executive order to open up the federal health insurance marketplace for three months.
Healthcare in the US is a travesty. Healthcare enrollment for 2021 was already open from November 1st to December 15, 2020. Three more months of open enrollment still doesn’t mean you can pay for it – especially when those $2000 dollar checks are still not sent.
And why on earth are there enrollment periods for healthcare insurance?? Imagine only being able to buy or switch car insurance six weeks a year!
Free market, my left hind leg. It just means insurers have you locked in a bad plan for a year.

from the point swooshing over their heads?
I don’t understand this whole limited-time period for enrollment, anyway. What difference does it make? Is it just to make it easier for the bean-counters at the insurance companies to figure out how much they need to jack-up their rates every year?
