Ashley Flett of Compass Insurance reminded those attending her former employer before she bought Compass was previous Chamber President Rich O’Connell. Flett talked about healthcare.gov, the process in applying for a subsidy credit and how deductibles can be lowered by as much as from $5,000, which the typical family can easily see, to as low as $500. The deadline is at the end of March.

Although four million people have signed up for the health care coverage offering about which Flett spoke, she said a sign-up of six million is projected. Besides two health plans to which she referred, WPS and Medica are also available. However, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, a major company, is cancelling out of this area.

She reported prescription drug plans are becoming mandatory for people when they turn age 65.
