Insurance Shopping Service Helps the Uninsured Find Coverage
Finding Affordable Health Insurance
According to a recent study conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, over 45 million Americans lack health insurance, leaving 16% of the population at significant medical and financial risk.
Growing health insurance costs are a major issue facing the uninsured. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the average annual premium of health insurance jumped 9.2% in 2005, costing a family of four an average of $10,880: more than a worker earning minimum wage makes in a year.
As a result of rising health insurance costs, more and more employers are dropping the benefit all together, with the Kaiser Foundation reporting that the number of companies offering health benefits has dropped to 60%, down from 69% since 2000.
InsureMe, a leading consumer-agent link for finding insurance online, is taking strides to help those without health insurance find affordable coverage.
The consumer-focused company allows shoppers to compare up to five health insurance quotes at no cost, giving the consumer the freedom to choose the policy that best fits their health needs and their budgets.
"At InsureMe, we take pride in helping consumers find the right health insurance, whether the need is for individual coverage or for a family," says InsureMe President, Tim McTavish.
"In minutes, consumers can submit their quote request on our Web site or contact our customer relations managers to get help in finding the coverage they need."
With health insurance costs expected to rise again in 2006, the InsureMe company may be the answer for millions of Americans without coverage.
InsureMe, an Englewood, Colorado-based company, links agents nationwide with consumers shopping for insurance. Specializing in auto, home, life, long-term care and health insurance quotes, the InsureMe network provides thousands of agents with health insurance leads every year.
