Wellmark’s Answer to Problems with the Complicated Health Insurance Marketplace?

The problems with the Health Marketplace government website continue and a recent CNN article quoted a ConsumerReports.org article which advised consumers:

“If all this is too much for you to absorb, follow our previous advice: Stay away from Healthcare.gov for at least another month if you can. Hopefully that will be long enough for its software vendors to clean up the mess they’ve made.”

This makes me wonder of Iowa’s Wellmark website will help keep things simple and avoid all the problems:

Wellmark Simple

If Wellmark can solve the problems at the state level in Iowa, maybe the Feds can ask us for help. However, Iowans need to be aware of potential problems with shopping for insurance off the exchange.

The question is how much will the Wellmark plans cost Iowans?

    Hi Jim,

    Here is a PowerPoint I made many years ago on delirious mania. It highlights the very high fatality rate untreated and references the original paper – 75% in 1849. No luck with the original reference yet.
