"Many people think that this health care law (ACA) is going to cover everyone, and it's not," says Nicole Lamoureux, executive director of the Alexandria, Va.-based National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics, which represents about 1,200 clinics nationally.

"The ranks of the uninsured have risen overall for four straight years. Gallup reported last month that 17.1 percent of Americans have no health insurance, up from 16.8 percent in 2010."

Great ways to give the healthcare gift card:

  • Employers concerned with providing the best benefit coverage for their employees are constantly looking for ways to offset the rising cost of healthcare. Life Gift Cards "Wellness" card offers a low-cost option so employers can offset the cost of a general physical exam for their full and part-time employees.  http://www.lifegiftcards.com/Purchase-Gift-Cards.php 
  • If a son or daughter is away at school or a young adult is out on his own and struggling to make ends meet, then Life Gift Cards "Dental" option, which provides basic dental cleaning, exam and x-rays is the perfect gift this Christmas.
  • With 1 in 8 women likely to face breast cancer in their lifetime, it is widely understood that early detection is a key to beating the deadly disease. "While breast cancer in women under 40 is rare, accounting for roughly 6.5% of all cases, it is more likely to be associated with high-risk features than the cancers seen in older women." — Cancer Network. Life Gift Cards' "Mammogram" card provides a safety net for single moms or family members who might not be able to pay for such early detection.

"We're convinced we have a way to fill the gap between the insured and uninsured/underinsured that is practical, affordable and right for the times," said Joey Truscelli, president and CEO of Life Gift Cards, LLC. We're not going to let friends and family face this healthcare issue alone. The technology is there and we're working hard every day to make more Life Gift Cards choices available."
