Greetings Ashlanders

Open Enrollment for the Federal Healthcare Marketplace and Medicare are coming up!

Despite what you may have heard in the news, 2018 is shaping up to be a reasonable year for consumers who qualify for tax credits and cost sharing measures through the Marketplace. Medicare continues unchanged.

THE DOG DAYS ARE UPON US

The internet told me that the heliacal rising of Sirius occurs this year on August 8. This celestial event ushers in the infamous “dog days”, when pavement gets sticky and cicadas sing. In Southern Oregon, this heat often comes with smoke. The other day my lovely, healthy 23-year-old cat came in from the smoke gasping and choking. This came as a surprise to both of us! And so I will pass on the reminder: pets and other people of all kinds, especially the elderly or unwell, need to be protected from the summer weather, including smoke.

NEW: PET HEALTH INSURANCE!

And speaking of Dog Days, I am excited to be offering Pet Health Insurance. Like human health insurance, pet health insurance can really take the sting out of unexpected medical bills, as well as helping out with preventative treatments to help keep your pet healthy and fit. For a quote, email me: scarney@ashlandinsurance.com

NEW: ACCIDENT POLICY HELPS WITH HIGH DEDUCTIBLES

If you are young, old, active or not so much, super careful or a little careless, or you find yourself at work, at play, at home, traveling, single, married with a family… Accidents happen! And if you have a high deductible health plan, this usually means that you will be bearing most of the costs before you reach that deductible. A supplemental accident policy puts cash in your hand when you need it most, to help with medical bills and accident related expenses. These are some of my favorite policies, because they really make a difference when the going gets tough.

PLANNING SOME MAJOR DENTAL WORK?

We might be able to help. Supplemental dental plans can add valuable coverage to your existing dental policy, to help offset the costs of major dental work, such as crowns, root canals, endodontics and more.
