Indigo advocates for healthcare security.
Indigo Care Partners is dedicated to advocacy, education and assistance to small business, proprietors, individuals and families that are unable to find help and resources that larger companies offer to their workforce.
In the recent decade, the cost of healthcare insurance premiums AND healthcare services have escalated at 15-20% year-over-year. For many hardworking Americans both have become unaffordable.
Consider this, if in 2011 a gallon of gasoline cost $3.00, a 15% year-over-year increase would mean paying $12.14 per gallon in 2011. Now calculate an average Individual premium of $300 per month in 2011, that premium is now $1,214 per month. More than most house payments! Families of four are being asked to pay over $2,000 per month in premiums.
No one should live in fear of needing a doctor or hospital. A single overnight hospital stay can exceed $10,000. Heart surgery exceeds $100,000 and electives run between $25,000 and $50,000.
Healthcare insurance can not be considered a luxury. It's essential, but what happens when the premium is no longer affordable? An accident or unexpected illness can be devastating to a family.
