NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- November is National Family Caregivers Month, and caregiver advocate Peter Rosenberger is reminding Americans to consider the importance of healthcare policies. "The challenges of soaring premiums and deductibles of ObamaCare (ACA) create additional obstacles to caregivers who themselves are often in need of significant medical care," said Rosenberger in a statement made today. "It is vitally important that the Trump administration and Congress repeal and replace this program. Better competition among insurance providers will drive down health insurance costs to customers—and lower costs will help incentivize caregivers to seek care for their health needs." Rosenberger —an author and radio host—draws upon his own thirty-year journey as a caregiver through his wife's disastrous medical journey following a horrific car accident that led to 78 operations, multiple amputations and more than $10 million in medical bills. His latest book, 7 Caregiver Landmines and How You Can Avoid Them, stresses the importance of caregivers seeking medical treatment for themselves. According to Rosenberger, "There are more than 65 million Americans serving as a family caregiver, and 72 percent of those caregivers fail to see their own doctor regularly." He continues, "Nearly half of those serving as caregivers are employed—and the workplace, as well as the national economy, will be detrimentally affected as this vast population continues to grow in response to the needs of the massive and aging baby-boomer population."
