In 2014, everyone who has not previously held health insurance is required by law to obtain it through a health care exchange. Unfortunately, the process is seemingly fraught with a number of serious glitches and security issues. What’s an average American to do when he or she wants to sign up for health insurance? With the frustrating setbacks, people are struggling to “convince” the system to let them complete their forms or proceed through a frozen site.
Fortunately, there are other options for those trying to use a health insurance exchange. Private health insurance may seem too expensive at first glance, but the marketplace is very competitive right now. As such, now is the best time to take advantage of price fluctuations. If you want to gain control over the health insurance plan and budget you choose, you may prefer to deal with private insurance companies. Not all government-run agencies are effective, efficient or simple. If you want to ensure that you meet requirements without undue hassle, private insurance likely offers your best alternative.
