Health Insurance Marketplace Woes? We Can Help!

Well, the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) had a health fair on November 9, 2013 and I’m continuing to post the access to a couple of useful links for helping people be successful getting through the Health Insurance Marketplace. The link to the UIHC page, for now, is Univ Iowa on Health Care Reform.

The other new item is HealthSherpa and, for now, three guys have made available an easy way to shop for insurance premiums. Just enter your zip code and, boom, you’re there. Although you can’t actually enroll on Health Sherpa, you can compare premiums and then go to healthcare.gov to finish the job. I have a hunch that this might be available for free for only a limited time. The link is also on my home menu under the Header; just click on “Health Sherpa.” [Geezer Update: The Health Sherpa site has been identified by my antivirus software as unsafe].

A sherpa is a member of a people who live in the Himalayas who are often hired to do the heavy lifting of equipment and act as guides. I get it!

I know a lot of people don’t like Obamacare and the computer glitches on healthcare.gov haven’t helped. But we can get through it. I don’t like Maintenance of Certification (MOC) either…but I do it anyway. If you’re having problems, we can help.

Sing the lyrics below instead of Billy Swan’s:

Sung to the Melody of Billy Swan’s “I Can Help”

If you got a problem, don’t care what it is

If you need a hand, I can assure you this I can help, I got strong networks I can help

It would sure do me good, to do you good Let me help

It’s a fact that people get sickly, ain’t nothing new

But a woman like you, baby should never have the flu

Let me help, with Obamacare,

Let me help

It would sure do me good, to do you good Let me help

When I go to work, you know, I nearly always can find you a plan

Helping you enroll despite a glitch the size of holiday ham, don’t you hear?

Don’t forget me baby, all you gotta do is call

You know Websites for Dummies can’t do anything at all

But I can help, if your child needs a checkup, I can help

It would sure do me good to do you good

Let me help

When I go to sleep at night prescription coverage colors my dream

Wellness and maternity, emergencies, and hospital stays, don’t you hear?

Don’t forget me baby, all you gotta do is call

Exchanges may confuse you, but I’ll do anything at all

To get you help, if your child needs a checkup, I can help

It would sure do me good to do you good

Let me help

  1. Great post! Now what we need is a YouTube video of you singing this version of the song with your red pants on! Hey, Obama himself might “Like” it! 🙂

    • That’s a great idea…except for the “fair use” restriction on Billy Swan’s song and most of his lyrics. And you have never heard me sing 🙂
