Portuguese to English: Consumer health at the crossroads
Source text - Portuguese A vida nunca esteve tão complicada para os usuários de planos de saúde. Os que possuem planos individuais ou familiares, principalmente se o contrato foi assinado antes de 1999 entraram em luta nos últimos meses. As ameaças vieram de todos os cantos: algumas empresas aumentaram seus preços mensais de forma incomensurável e outras tentaram forçar a clientela a migrar para planos mais caros e os médicos de vários estados resolveram não aceitar mais clientes de alguns planos, como protesto contra o congelamento de preços desde 1994. Assim sendo, os consumidores foram atingidos tanto no bolso quanto no atendimento, praticamente ao mesmo tempo.
Translation - English Life has never been so complicated for users of health plans. Those who have an individual or family health plan, especially if the contract was signed before 1999, have been buffeted in the last few months. Threats have come from all sides: some companies have raised their monthly fees sky high, others have tried to force clients to migrate to more expensive plans, and doctors in several states have decided to discontinue taking patients from various plans, protesting against the freezing of their fees since 1994. Thus, consumers have been hit in both their pockets and care level, almost at the same time.
