When Chris C. left his previous job to start his own company, he had to make large COBRA payments to retain health coverage for himself and his family.
Stuck in a job he was no longer passionate about, Chris C. decided to resign in order to follow his dreams. He founded a small company that sells bubble products and performs bubble tricks for children’s birthday parties. Though he enjoys the happiness that his new business brings children and their parents, leaving his old job meant that Chris had to pay a large COBRA premium to retain health insurance. He and his wife started looking into more affordable plans through the NY State of Health Marketplace, but they had many questions about their options. Both Chris’ new business and his wife’s job as a freelancer made their annual income unpredictable and did not know what they were eligible for. After hearing about the CSS Navigator Network on the radio, Chris decided to contact a Navigator to get some answers.
With the Navigator’s help, Chris reviewed his options and selected an affordable plan that best met his family’s needs. Now Chris can continue growing his company without worrying about his family’s health. “Navigators are an amazing service. Anyone who needs to use the NY State of Health Marketplace should definitely take advantage of it.”
“It’s so reassuring to have someone who can explain your options to you. It gives you that peace of mind that you got the best plan for your situation.”
