Affordable Care Act (ACA)
November 1 – January 15
You may have been hearing about open enrollment for the last few weeks. That was for people over the age of 65. Now is the time for people under age 65.
This is going to be a challenging year when it comes to Medical Insurance, rates are going up 30 to 50%, the current administration is determined to get rid of the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare.
I am sure you know about the attempts to repeal the ACA, this year things will remain the same however, many carriers will not be offering coverage and the remaining plans may require you change your doctor.
Good news is if your income falls below 400% of Federal Poverty Level you will still receive your premium reduction and you will not be impacted too much since subsidies or tax credits will keep your premiums under control.
Household # 400% OF FPL
1 $ 48,240
2 $ 64,960
3 $ 81,680
4 $ 98,400
If you own a Business you may want to consider a group insurance plan. You would have more options and access to doctors you want to see.
There are Accident and Illness policys. These plans are not Medical Insurance but they will help with the bills. You can get an Accident policy for under $20 per month, or an entire family for under $50. Many people do these plans with Medical Insurance since deductibles are so high.
There are policys for Cancer, Heart Attack, Stroke and Critcal Illness. These plans let you to choose how much coverage, $5,000 to $500,000 or more.
