Seattle Times letters to the editor

Health-care: Allow open group enrollment

Also, address the chargemaster pricing problem

Thank you for publishing Andrew Reding’s guest column on health insurance [“State’s health-insurance exchange site remains down,” Online, Dec. 5]. Like Reding’s Blue Shield experience, my Lifewise policy is canceled as of the end of the year. I will be transferred to a new plan with premiums that increase almost 20 percent and a deductible that increases 81 percent to $6,350.

But the “upside” to this is that I will have maternity coverage, just what I need as I approach my 60th birthday.

Reding’s ideas about open group enrollment and addressing the chargemaster pricing problem are both solid ideas that should be reviewed as future changes are made to this very flawed law.

— Diane Adam, Medina
