“Scams are proliferating as more families scramble for affordable health coverage
The way Dana Christensen sees it, she and her husband got scammed. In early 2001, seven years after Doug had successfully battled bone cancer, the couple needed new health insurance. So they were all ears when a representative from a group called the National Association for the Self-Employed knocked on the door of Doug’s boat repair business in Marina del Rey, Calif.

– My advice, when it comes to buying health insurance for yourself, it to be very, very carefull and read all of the fine print in your contracts. It is scary to think that a small mistake on your part could harm you so dramatically but that is the current situation in consumer purchased health care. Hopefully, this article helps at least one person avoid making a mistake that could dramatically effect their lives in a negative way.
