Record-Breaking Numbers

The uninsured rate by state rankings is shocking, most notably Texas with an estimated 659,000 Texans losing their healthcare. The report also stated that the past few months have been the “deepest economic crash since World War II.” The pandemic has left more people uninsured than ever recorded. It surpasses the previous record by 39% from 2008-2009. Those who are not currently covered due to job loss should look into COBRA plans, which allow you to keep current coverage that your workplace provided. You also might be eligible for a special enrollment period which is a time you can sign up for health insurance outside of the yearly Open Enrollment Period. Talk to your agent today and see how they can help provide you guidance with your insurance questions.
