Now, they believe they can’t afford a new policy, or they fear they may be rejected if they try to get an individual policy,” Bernstein says. “Most of those people are wrong. In fact, unless a person has serious health issues, buying an individual policy -- not part of an employer program -- will cost less and offer more benefits.”
