Free Service Helps Parents and Grandparents to Obtain Affordable Health Insurance
The Black Seniors Healthcare Program, a joint venture between Health Plans of America and BlackNews.com, has launched to help African American parents and grandparents (age 50 and older) to obtain an affordable health insurance plan. The program works directly with Obamacare, Medicaid, Medicare, and all the major health insurance companies on a local and national level.
The free program aims to address devastating statistics about African Americans who still lack adequate health insurance. Just this past December 2013, Kaiser Family Foundation released a report showing that minorities will make up 53 percent of the estimated 4.8 million low-income Americans who will fall into the “coverage gap,” leaving them without viable options to obtain health insurance. That means that minorities makeup about 2.6 million of the people in the gap.
The program’s web site, BlackSeniorsHealthcare.org, allows visitors to register for a free quote. No payment is required to receive a quote, and visitors to the web site will also have access to the top resources (organizations and government agencies) that are helping minorities who need health insurance. The service has already helped thousands of families.
