North Carolina high risk insurance pool will soon be more affordable

Although Inclusive Health, the state’s insurance plan for people with preexisting conditions, is valuable, the monthly premiums are still unaffordable to many individuals and families.

But a new $1.5 million federal grant will help provide premium assistance for Inclusive Health enrollees beginning today. For approved applicants the discounts will range from 20 percent to 43 percent off of monthly premiums.

This is no substitute for federal reform, or course, but it’s welcome news for thousands of people across the state unable to find affordable health insurance. For more information go to the Inclusive Health website.
