Thanks for the question Karah...the website, Healthcare.gov will have that information because the costs vary with your income level. You can also call the marketplace phone number I posted in the response to Sven below.
Hi Corey, while I don't know the exact numbers as they will vary based on your income level, the information we are seeing shows that they are going to be lower then many commercial providers.
Lori is stepping out for a moment to appear on our newscast. Dr. Davenport will continue to answer your questions.
Hi TM, one of the goals of the ACA is to be able to provide a less expensive insurance option...go to healthcare.gov to see the income levels and costs associated...my bet is that you might find a good option there.
thank you, Jest, the website Healthcare.gov has a wealth of information regarding the ACA and it will be the location to help with signup as well.
Hi Traci...for anyone that currently qualifies for T-19, nothing should change based on the information we are hearing. At just over the 120% of the federal poverty level (FPL), you would also qualify for the new exchanges, but most likely won't need to make any changes.
Thank you for the question, LJ. If your doctor accepts T-19 or chooses to accept the Medicaid expansion, then nothing should change there. I would encourage you to discuss this with your regular to make sure they are going to continue accepting this insurance. I believe Rx coverage is unchanged as well. We are hoping to develop a community collaborative to get all of the clinic in the CR area on board with accepting patients to help care for patients.
Great question, Erik...check out healthcare.gov for information based on your income as it compares to the FPL. this will vary based on how many children you have. for example, if you meet less than 400% of the FPL (
Dave, There will be a tax penalty of $95 or 1%, whichever is greater. Thanks for your question.
Thanks, IanB...on 1/1/14, IA Cares changes. There is some thought that they will auto-enroll patients with providers, but you should be able to re-enroll with any local provider that accepts the insurance plans. This is one of the main reason why we are hoping to set up a community collaborative to provide residents with a single point of contact to help find a provider closer to their home.
Great question, Chuck, and thank you for your service...current members of Medicare/Medicaid and Tricare will not need to make any changes.
Kathy, Thanks for the question. If you aren't claiming him on your taxes as a dependent, I would encourage you to go to the exchange to see if there may be a more affordable option. If you go to healthcare.gov after October 1, he can put in his information and it will say what he will qualify for. Based on his income, he may qualify for subsidies.
