The Affordable Care Act: Countdown to Coverage
How, exactly, will the new health care law, The Affordable Care Act, affect you and your family? Who will answer your questions? Who will be covered? What conditions will be covered? What are the premiums to be, and how are they set? When does all this start, anyway? Where do you go for information that will clear up the confusion that abounds right now?
One site to search for your options for health care coverage that lays out information on the various plans offered, private insurance plan comparisons, comprehensive benefits and qualification information, and facts regarding cost to you is http://www.healthcare.gov/. This site has the latest data for determining which insurance plans are available to you in your state, and how to enroll in your selected plan.
All of the coverage plans offered under The Affordable Care Act are required to cover a comprehensive set of benefits including doctor visits, wellness care, hospital stays, and prescriptions. Denial of coverage due to pre-existing conditions is prohibited, and everyone must be fairly treated under the prescribed plans.
Coverage starts as soon as January 1, 2014. Check out the government’s healthcare site as soon as possible for how all this works for you and what your benefits will be. There are key deadlines, so visit the site for resources and checklists available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in English and Spanish and other languages. Find out if you qualify for programs such as Medicaid or CHIP or lower premiums and out-of-pocket costs.
The Affordable Care Act is set to make changes in the lives of millions of Americans. Health insurance billed to fit your budget and meet your health needs is set to take effect with the coming New Year. If you need to speak with a knowledgeable customer service representative, call 1-800-318-2596. Get informed, get coverage, and get ready for government-provided health care.
