WAYNESBORO, Va. – As Washington tangles over health insurance, many Americans are taking matters into their own hands.
“I wanted something that wasn’t going to be the same sort of trap that I had been in,” said Stephen Strosnider.
Strosnider is an attorney at a small law firm in Waynesboro, Virginia. His wife, Jennifer, is a stay-at-home mom and they have three young boys and a baby on the way.
Two years ago they paid $500 a month for insurance. The premiums have been steadily rising since then, and this year would have hit $1,200 a month – a 52 percent jump from where they started.
“We try and find the best deals that we can, and even the best deals that we could find were going up and up and, according to our insurance broker, everybody’s was going up because of Obamacare. We could choose a different provider but the difference was 10 or 15 dollars a month, there wasn’t going to be a huge savings whichever insurance company we went with,” Strosnider explained.
