Health Insurance Marketplace

The New Law

The Affordable Care Act requires everyone legally living in the U.S. to have health insurance beginning January 1, 2014. But it also gives millions of uninsured people access to health plans at different cost levels and it provides financial assistance to those who qualify based on family size and income.

The new online Health Insurance Marketplace, also known as an exchange, allows consumers to  one-stop-shop for a plan that fits their budget and coverage needs.  St. Mary is here to help our community members learn about the law and choose the plans that best fit their needs.

Sign Up for 2014 Ends on March 31

If you do not have health insurance, you are required to sign up during open enrollment by March 31, 2014. You can shop for plans by phone, through a broker, or at the online Marketplace, where you can easily compare benefits and costs. If you do not sign up, you will face tax penalties. Open enrollment for coverage in 2015 will begin in October 2014.

The New Marketplace

The Health Insurance Marketplace is available online, by phone, or through an approved insurance broker, and it’s designed to make buying health coverage easier by comparing plans side by side, in simple language and with no fine print. You will be able to choose between four levels of health plans—Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze—from a variety of approved insurance providers, and each will have different amounts of coverage and different monthly premiums. Only one simple application will be required.

To sign up online, visit www.healthcare.gov.

 Information from St. Mary on the Marketplace

What Will The Plans Cover?

There will no longer be denials for pre-existing conditions. Coverage will include doctor visits, hospital stays, wellness care, prescriptions, emergency services and more. In fact, Ten Essential Health Benefits must be covered in every plan and certain Preventive Care Services will be provided at no additional costs to patients.

Financial Assistance

Starting in 2014, a surprisingly large number of people will qualify for financial help. For example, an individual earning up to $45,900 a year, or a family of four earning up to $94,200 a year, will qualify for a reduction of their monthly premiums, or a tax credit at the end of the year. The calculator below will give you a good idea of how much assistance will be available. Once you apply at the Marketplace, you will find out the exact amount.
