BATON ROUGE – Louisiana may be known for its rain, but not every neighborhood in Baton Rouge is prone to flooding.

There is limited coverage for fire, windstorm, theft and vandalism, and there is typically a $500 to $1,000 deductible. You also may not have coverage while traveling, but check the policy.”

WATCH NOW: ‘Is this right?’ New federal law drives down health insurance costs in marketplace | Govt. and Politics

Last week, Torres-Barrera called “out of the blue” and suggested that LeBlanc resubmit her application to the marketplace. The result? Her monthly premium fell from $339 to $209 a month, a monthly savings of $120.

“I feel for people who don’t have support,” she said.

The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that the new law will expand health coverage to 3.7 million uninsured Americans, an increase of 20%.
