Sen. Moran wants to fix Affordable Health Care program

WICHITA, Kansas - Kansas Senator Jerry Moran is one of many who wants a quick fix to the problems facing people trying to sign up for the Affordable Health Care program.
 
The Affordable Health Care Act has had a slow rollout. Problems have been well documented all over the news, on the web and, of course, in the mainstream media. President Obama has even apologized for the delay.
 
But interest in the program is still very high.
 
"And so, for the first time in one place, without having to go from one insurance broker agent to another," said Julie Brookhart, Medicare & Medicaid Public Affairs.
 
Moran  has offered Senate Bill 1617, the If You Like Your Health Plan, You Can Keep It Act .
 
The bill would allow for more plans to be grand-fathered in meaning that more people could keep their current plan and forget about those cancelation notices they got in the mail.
 
"At least 29 times, President Obama promised Americans that if you like the insurance you have, you could keep it under Obamacare," said Senator Moran. "Despite the President's repeated promises, the fact is that thousands of individuals and families across Kansas are among the millions of Americans who have had their health pans cancelled because they do not meet the law's requirements."
 
For those who are working with the government to make sure people know how to navigate the website and sign up, they say the plans on the exchange are better than many of the old-school major medical plans.
 
They may cost more, but they also offer more
 
As for Senator Moran, he says his plan will simply offer more choice.
