Letter about Health Care: Get what you paid for?...

Letter about Health Care: Get what you paid for?...

To the Editor,

It is often said that you get what you pay for. When you are buying equipment, this generally falls true, a purchasing decision that can be considered against your cash flow, profits, and needs. If it was that straight forward with health care, we’d all be in better shape. Unfortunately, with the advances in marketing, it is harder than ever to know what you are actually getting.

Health insurance policies are being sold to us with well-researched and effective marketing up-front and very costly breakdowns that show up later on, demonstrating the lack of value in the policy. Deductibles and maximum out-of-pocket expenses are just deferred premiums. Adding these potential costs up and dividing by 12 is the effective monthly premium. If this premium is out of your budget, you will be setting yourself up for potential long-term, chronic, health care debt.

Fortunately, our state has Minnesota Care, a low-cost, high-value health insurance policy with no deductible and no maximum out-of-pocket expenses available now for nearly 20 years. It is used by a number of farmers and also by many other independent, self-employed people in rural Minnesota. If you don’t qualify, then tell your legislator that we need to expand Minnesota Care as an option for more Minnesotans to get one plan with clear value in understandable terms.
