Hi Glenn

Although it is very confusing to actually go through the enrollment process online, I do think that this change may work for your benefit. At least I hope so.

TVA is offering help with medical insurance through One Exchange, the company they have partnered with, and in order to receive help with your medical insurance premiums, you must enroll through One Exchange. Please see below:

You can purchase private health insurance else where but if you want help with your medical insurance premiums through TVA, you must enroll through One Exhchange.

One Exchange is not an insurance company. It is similar in nature to purchasing health insurance through the "Market Place" as part of the Obama care plan.

I don't know about you, but trying to go through the Market Place just thoroughly confuses me. If I were you, I would call a representative of One Exchange at 1-***-***-****, and have a representative talk to you about your options and helping you find the best plan for you. Please see One Exchange contact information below:
