NASRO of Washington State is a non-profit with 20 years of service to the community and a solution to achieving affordable health care. We lead the way for small businesses to join the vibrant coalition of health care providers and religious activists who broke through the resistance of the health insurance industry to require universal health care access in Massachusetts. From the Massachusetts Landmark Health Care Reform law came the federal Affordable Care Act.
Big changes in health insurance are coming changes, that we have been fighting for going on 20 years. We expect to be part of that change going forward with new plans that will be implemented in 2014 protecting everyone with a pre-existing medical condition, providing subsidies based on income and offering more affordable plans.

There are no complicated telephone matrixes, waits or impersonal service from out of state telemarketing centers when you call NASRO .
The Impact of Health Insurance Reform
Every day that goes by that Washington state health insurance is allowed to continue individual medical underwriting and deny people affordable Washington health insurance coverage is a major waste of resources. It ruins more families and makes Washington weaker in the global marketplace, as this practice contributes to the annual rise in health insurance prices. Hopefully, government regulation will soon do away with this practice.
Now that health insurance reform has passed there will be many opportunities to simply call us up regardless of your pre-existing conditions and explore your health insurance options as we have always done with the private sector administration of health insurance.
That still leaves employer groups with the major problem of controlling costs and preventing the health insurance & health care companies from shifting costs from individuals to employer groups. From our 28 years in the industry we know that the health insurance carrier profits are squeezed in one sector, they move like the air in a balloon over to another area. NASRO can stop this practice from happening.

A self employed business owner and spouse from Seattle in their 40’s with two children, all in good health, with no chronic medical conditions has just received a major rate increase from their insurance company. NASRO is able to take the time to review the situation and make recommendations on some of the newest plans available from well respected Washington State carriers that can lower the monthly premium increase. NASRO is fighting for health care reform that will outlaw the practice of individual medical underwriting as part of a new federal law. Although we have said this before over the past decades, we now believe this type of basic reform will become law very soon.
