Houston group health insurance is more affordable and accessible than ever to millions of individuals and families who were previously uninsured or underinsured. And as insurers expand the Affordable Care Act into more states and counties, look for the already-low uninsured rate to continue to fall to record-setting lows in the months and years to follow. According to a Forbes article, the natural uninsured rate has reached 8%, but the current administration is doubling down with bigger investments and regulatory changes to continue improving enrollment numbers. This includes last month’s historic investment of nearly $100 million on navigators that help connect more people to health coverage.

The Inflation Reduction Act signed into law in August extends subsidies for millions of Americans who buy the Affordable Care Act. This includes individuals and families with group health insurance in Houston who were previously uninsured or underinsured. Now that it has been signed into law, Forbes quoted several studies that suggest an estimated 13 million people will continue to save an average of $800 per year on their Marketplace health insurance. Naturally, health insurance companies have also launched expansions into new markets, pushing the total to 16 by the end of next year.
Rick Thornton, a Houston health insurance agent, echoed a comment from Lisa Lough, president of Cigna’s Individual and Family Plans, who was quoted by Forbes in a recent article on this matter as saying, “By continuing to expand and enhance our individual and family plans, more people will have access to quality, affordable care that supports whole-person health.” Thornton said more health insurance companies are expected to follow suit, and as this happens, their expansions should continue to reduce the ranks of the uninsured across the globe — providing unprecedented access to affordable healthcare.
