No matter where we live or how we spend our time, it impossible to turn on a television, radio, or to even read a newspaper without hearing about issues surrounding affordable healthcare in our country. In New Mexico, news of lawsuits, changes in providers' offerings, and rumors of providers leaving the state leaves many consumers who are seeking health insurance coverage scratching their heads.
ue to high and continuously rising costs of healthcare, from doctors and hospitals to medicines and medical equipment, most Americans cannot afford to self-insure their most valuable commodities - our health. Add to that the legal requirements of carrying health insurance, combined with the tax penalties we will face if we are uninsured, anyone who is not provided with employment-based health insurance must take responsibility for purchasing health insurance for themselves and their families.
Fortunately for New Mexico residents, Family Insurance Associates is available to offer valuable knowledge and resources about the private marketplace, the federal marketplace, and public health plans to help us make the decisions we need to make to obtain the right health insurance for our needs.
