CHARLESTON, WV (WVNS) — Millions of Americans still struggle to get health insurance.
Most Americans get their health insurance through an employer, but there are still some who can’t get health insurance because they work part-time, hold multiple jobs, are self-employed, or simply because their employer provides no benefits.
Senator Kaine recently spoke about the benefits of the Medicare-X Choice Act, which would help give Americans another health insurance option that meets their needs, instead of having to use exchanges.
“What Medicare-X would do is direct the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services, CMS, to develop an insurance policy. It’s like a non-profit insurance policy that they would put on the Exchange to compete, so there would just be, we would just add one more option to the Exchange,” Senator Kaine said.
Senator Kaine hopes this bill will in turn help households, employers and the government save billions of dollars and reduce the number of uninsured Americans.
