Congress Doesn’t Have To Wait As Long As Most Workers for Health Insurance

leave a comment »

Did you know that average waiting period for coverage on health insurance is 2.2 months? And 33%  of covered workers face a waiting period of at least 3 months? About 74% of covered workers have to ride through a waiting period before coverage is available!

Republican elected Andy Harris of Maryland, politician and physician, was shocked when he found out he had to wait a month for his government-provided private health insurance to kick in.

“This is the only employer I’ve ever worked for where you don’t get coverage the first day you are employed”
