Maine Story from Paula H.

I moved to Maine in October of 2013 and dealt with Cheney insurance for my home and car insurance.  I received a letter from them saying they had a representative, Rachel to help me through the signup process for health insurance.  I had received notification from my previous health insurance carrier that my monthly payment would be going up from $577 to $714 monthly with an out of pocket of almost $5,000.  Because I have an ongoing health condition, I always reach my out of pocket for the year.  I was going to have to pay around $13,000 in 2014 for my health insurance.

Rachel was able to easily find me a plan that, with financial help, only costs me $3.20 a month.  I do have an out of pocket of $6,350 which is still alot of money, but HALF of what I was expecting to pay.

Rachel was almost as giddy as I with the savings!

I am a self-employed period costume historian and hand bookbinder who has needed to get health insurance for myself but could never afford a very satisfactory one.  I signed up at a workshop set up by Pen Bay hospital and after a couple hours I was able to be enrolled.  I am glad I did!

I had great health insurance until I was laid off in July 2013. There was no way I could afford the cobra as it was going to be over $1000 a month.  I was anxiously waiting for the Affordable Care Act to take effect. I also found out that all the plans in the Affordable Care Act have great coverage for people with diabetes.

Tip to others: Get local help.  I found Lisa Lemieux and believe it or not Ms. Lemieux answered the phone.   How many times have you called a number gained from a website and the person you called actually answered the phone? Long story short, I am pleasantly surprised, have good coverage, and met the deadline.  I highly recommend folks find a local enrollment specialist and they will help you all the way.
