Grocery store workers have been on the front lines of the pandemic since it struck the U.S. in early March. Now more than ever, it is imperative that grocery store workers and other essential workers are covered and ready for what ever health challenges may come their way.
Studies show that roughly 20% of grocery workers have contracted the COVID-19 virus, and most of these individuals never experienced any symptoms. These essential workers are placed at extremely high risk of contracting the virus, mainly from exposure in the workplace.
At Simple Choice, we understand how important the health of our essential workers is. In the thick of a global pandemic, these groups have kept our country going, and we want to make sure they are taken care of.
Under the Affordable Care Act, grocery store workers whose annual income is under $50,000 could qualify for a significant cost reduction. This means lower premiums, lower out-of-pocket costs, and financial and physical freedom.
