Ad Feedback

If you lost your job and are paying for health insurance through Cobra, you may pay less in a matter of days.

Money from the recently passed stimulus package is making it possible for people to reduce their Cobra costs up to 65 percent, beginning March 18.

Stimulus package funding is also being given to 126 community health centers to the tune of $155 million.

Many are concerned about President Obama's plan for health care, like Rick Scott of Conservatives for Patient's Rights.  Click play for his comments to CBN News.

The Obama universal healthcare plan will take center stage Thursday at the White House as the President discusses it with people on both sides of the issue, not just lawmakers, but doctors, patients and representatives from insurance and drug companies.

The Nation's 45 Million Uninsured

The plan includes insuring everyone by allowing America's 45 million uninsured to buy into a health insurance plan currently offered to federal employees, and to get a subsidy if they can not afford it.

It also mandates that all small business offer health insurance to employees, but also pays small businesses up to 50 percent of that insurance cost.

Saving administrative costs by computerizing health records and by emphasizing prevention will save an average family $2,500 a year on health expenses.

Right now, half of all personal bankruptcies filed are due to the inability to pay medical bills.
