Obamacare: More than just a big headache?

| November 01, 2013

The Affordable Care Act stands to upend the individual market for insurance, where many owner-operators have traditionally gone to purchase health insurance. Given recent news of so many policy cancellations in that market and the buzz around the ACA, many drivers have been looking toward the new health insurance exchanges for options only to find little more than a dysfunctional website, particularly in states where the exchange is federally run.

Overdrive Senior Editor Todd Dills explored these and other issues with Tom Smith and Marc Ballard of the Healthy Trucking Association of America in the special podcast featured below. HTAA is in the process of setting up a fully-functional driver-specific web portal toward the exchange policies, and they’ve already set up a call center accessible via 855-648-1613.
