Hometown Health CEO Ty Windfeldt weighs in on the Presidential Executive Order Promoting Healthcare Choice and Competition Across the United States, which will lead to future changes to health insurance.
By Ty Windfeldt, CEO, Hometown Health
There has been a lot of talk coming out of Washington regarding
health care over the past six months. Just last week, the President
signed the Presidential Executive Order Promoting Healthcare Choice
and Competition, and this week the Senate addressed the issue.
We at Hometown Health, part of the not-for-profit Renown Health
system based here in Nevada for nearly 30 years, are committed to
keeping you informed of how policy changes such as this may affect
your health care.
Despite recent events, the Affordable Care Act is still in effect and the
Presidential Executive Order and the Senate negotiations do nothing
to change that. What the Executive Order does is direct the various
federal agencies to make changes to regulations within the confines
of the law. For Nevadans, at least for the foreseeable future, these
changes will have no effect.
Hometown Health believes everyone should have access to health care
coverage. Whether you receive health insurance benefits through your
employer or purchase coverage through the Nevada Health Link, health
insurance coverage protects you and your family from catastrophic
medical events and allows you to get the health care you need.
If you have questions regarding what health insurance plan might be best for
you, please talk to a licensed health insurance broker. Their experience
and knowledge of the various insurers and coverage options will allow
you to select an appropriate plan.
