“A few years ago, I had Medicaid coverage. When I started making more money, I was no longer eligible,” said Kay Greenwood of Bennington. This year, I reached out to an assistant to help me find out about health insurance costs and what they included, the process was stress-free, there were no gaps in health care or coverage, and I was able to find a plan that was right for me. I signed up.”
