To the Editor:
For enrollment into the Affordable Care Act, CoOportunity Health has registered 65,000 customers in Iowa and Nebraska, according to CEO Dave Lyons. These registered customers are three to four times more than the insurance cooperative company had expected during the first open enrollment.
CoOportunity Health is one of two insurance companies who are insurers on the Marketplace website in central Iowa. Many CoOportunity Health direct callers waited until the last minute just like those going onto the website.
It is exciting that over 6 million Americans have signed up for health care coverage. It means that 17 million children with preexisting conditions can no longer be denied insurance. It means that 100 million Americans have access to free preventative care services. Both of these predict a healthier future for Americans.
