Sourcing health insurance for U.S. riders and racers was one of our core products that our business was founded on in 2007, and it is still one of the first lines of defense for financial protection against medical bills. As most American citizens and U.S. residents know, the impacts of the Affordable Care Act since enacted in March of 2010 have not been going in a positive direction for the last three years. Premiums have dramatically increased as well as the deductibles and other out of pocket cost. On top of those issues, many of the private health insurance companies in the U.S. that we work with, have decided not to offer coverage to the individual market making it that much harder for us to find you products that will cover you on and off the track.
With that said, for the 2018 open enrollment we will not be taking on any new customers for individual U.S. health insurance plans. However, we can still be of some help. First off, we will still offer employee benefit programs to businesses which give you more options. Second, and most importantly we still want to provide you with as much value as we can. We have put together "The Riders Guide to Purchasing U.S. Health Insurance" that can help guide you in getting a health plan.
