In most states, open enrollment for the insurance marketplace began on November 1st and will end on December 15th. Instead of sticking with a subpar, overly expensive insurance plan, considering switching to MPowering Benefits for your health care coverage.
MPowering Benefits offers a partially self-directed healthcare plan that enables you to set up an HSA with a healthshare plan.
What is a health share plan?
Healthshare programs are not offered by insurance companies, but rather by recognized medical cost sharing organizations.. With one million members (as of 2018), many Americans are experiencing savings up to half of what they paid for traditional insurance.
Healthshare programs do not have “premiums”, but rather “contribution amounts”. Typically, these amounts are half or less the cost of an unsubsidized health insurance policy.
What is an HSA?
A health savings account (HSA) is a medical saving account available to consumers with high-deductible plans. Money contributed is not subject to the federal income tax. Using these savings accounts, members are able to save money for medical expenses that are not covered. Just like an individual retirement account (IRA), the money in your HSA grows tax-deferred if not used for qualifying medical expenses.
Best of Both WorldsAccording to their website, MPowering Benefits “allows you to take charge of your health, choose your provider, and ‘share’ in the coverage of your approved medical expenses through the network.”
Monthly contribution (like a premium) can be as low as $190 a month depending on several factors, including age, number of people in the household, and plan. For most, that’s a significant difference from what they’re currently paying for traditional insurance. As a cherry on the top, health share plans aren’t locked into specific networks, offering more autonomy and choices.
