Health Care Advocate Releases Affordability Report The Office of the Health Care Advocate (HCA) has released a report demonstrating the affordability crisis that Vermonters face when purchasing health insurance and health care. In the paper, “The Cost of Health Insurance: Quantifying the Vermont Affordability Crisis,” the HCA assesses the affordability of health insurance on Vermont Health Connect and shows that many Vermonters cannot afford health insurance. The HCA’s paper demonstrates that unaffordability is both quantifiable and measurable, and that health insurance plans offered on Vermont Health Connect are unaffordable to a wide range of Vermonters. Together, the HCA’s three methodologies reveal the severity of the health care affordability crisis in Vermont. Chief Health Care Advocate Mike Fisher said “as health care costs rise, many Vermonters must make the heart-breaking choice between paying for health care and paying for basic needs like food and housing. This is particularly relevant given the Governor’s budget proposal to increase out of pocket costs for low income families by cutting the Vermont Cost Sharing Reduction.” The HCA has helped Vermonters with health care issues, including affordability, since 1998. Every day, Vermonters tell the HCA stories of struggling to pay health insurance and health care costs. An advocate with the HCA described, “I recently spoke with a woman who had an unexpected health emergency. After she and her husband paid her ER bills and paid for his regular medication, the family couldn’t afford their premiums anymore. They lost their health insurance.” This is not an uncommon scenario for Vermonters, many of whom cannot afford their premiums, out of pocket health care costs, or both. In its paper, the HCA presents three different ways of examining and quantifying health insurance affordability in Vermont’s individual market. First, the HCA compares the cost of health insurance to Vermont wage and economic growth and demonstrates that health insurance costs have outpaced these macroeconomic indicators. Second, the HCA uses a rule-based model that includes premium affordability standards codified in the Affordable Care Act and the deductible affordability standard used in the Vermont Household Health Insurance Survey. This model demonstrates that large segments of Vermont’s population have health care premiums and deductibles that they cannot afford. Third, the HCA uses a market-based model that evaluates whether Vermont families can afford health insurance and health care and still be able to purchase basic necessities such as food, clothing, transportation, and housing. This model demonstrates that many Vermonters with a wide range of incomes are unable to pay for the basic necessities of life, including health insurance, without spending more than they earn. Many Vermonters have to make painful decisions about which necessities to forego. “A Vermont family of four making $35,000 could find themselves more than $25,000 short after paying for their basic needs for the year,” Fisher stated. “Even Vermont families with moderate incomes may find themselves without enough money to cover their basic needs.” The HCA’s paper shows that this is because of the high cost of health insurance and other necessities, and the sharp drop-offs in federal and state assistance that occur at certain in e levels. The Office of the Health Care Advocate (HCA) helps Vermont consumers with a broad range of problems and questions related to health care services and health insurance. The HCA acts as a voice and advocate for consumers in health care policy matters before the Vermont legislature and government agencies that oversee insurance and health care programs. The Office of the Health Care Advocate is a project of Vermont Legal Aid. Vermont Legal Aid (VLA) is a nonprofit law firm that provides legal advice and services to individuals and families throughout Vermont who are facing a civil legal problem that threatens their rights, shelter, job, health or well-being. VLA began serving clients in 1968. • • • Vermont Professional tax & financial serVices LLC • Personal & Business Tax PreParaTion • small Business ConsulTing gerard m. galvin, Jd CPa 802-839-6929 Certified Public Accountants Comprehensive Tax Preparation *Individual & Business Tax Returns *Authorized by IRS E-File for all Clients *On-going tax planning based on current tax laws *Accepting new clients *Free initial consultation for new clients 1 Conti Circle, Barre, Vermont 05641 (802) 476-9490 / Fax (802) 476-7018 Gifford Offers Free Prostate Screenings Urologist Dr. Richard Graham is offering prostate screenings at Gifford Medical Center on Thursday, February 15, 2018 from 4:45 to 7 p.m. Each free screening includes PSA testing, a prostate exam, and a follow up plan if needed. “Twenty seven thousand men die of prostate cancer each year in the US,” Said Dr. Graham. “A PSA test, while not a test for cancer, helps us know if we should be looking for something that needs monitoring or treatment.” The free prostate screenings are open to everyone (not just Gifford patients) but limited spaces are available; please call 802-728-2430 to register.
