Obama Care… Better Than I Thought!!

I have not been able to keep up  with trying to follow the political process to learn about the new health care system or the Affordable Care Act, more recently known as “Obamacare.”  It is getting close to the launch of it and I thought I had better find out what this means to me as a consumer who is currently uninsured for health care.

Here is what I found.

First we have 3 choices:

1) Select employer provided private insurance coverage:

  a. Must meet employers eligibility requirement i.e., full-time employees, etc.

  b. Advantage:  Can deduct premiums from taxable income

  c. If premium exceeds 9.5% of yearly income, eligible for a tax credit

  d. Insurance Providers must follow new laws which are designed to protect the citizens: 

     i. Can not deny you coverage because of  “pre-existing conditions”

     ii. Can not cancel policy arbitrarily when you get sick, i.e, mistake on application

     iii. Accountable for rate increases

     iv. All plans must provide a Summary of Benefits & Coverage (SBC) standard form so we can easily compare apples to apples.

2) Select coverage from private insurance coverage in the Marketplace Exchange.

   a. Competitive marketplace where all insurance provider must obey new laws which protect the citizens:

      i.    Can not deny you coverage because of  “pre-existing conditions”

      ii.   Can not cancel policy arbitrarily when you get sick, i.e, mistake on application

      iii.  Must provide easy to understand Summary of Benefits & Coverage

      iv.  Accountable for rate increases

      v.  OUT OF POCKET set at Max and insurance companies must pay all over

      vi. No pay limits for Insurance companies and they can not impose limits.

      vii. All plans must provide a Summary of Benefits & Coverage (SBC) standard form so we can easily compare apples to apples.

      viii. Can carry adult children up to 26 years

  b. All providers must provide “Preventive Care Services” FREE without a copay or co-insurance. 

Preventive Care

      can include:

      i. Breast Cancer, free mammograms, screening

      ii. Colonoscopy

      iii. Blood pressure

      iv. Sexually transmitted infections

      v. Immunization vaccines/shots

      vi. HIV screening

      vii. Diabetes screening and lots more


a. Taxable income includes premium payments

3)  Opt to be un-insured:  Must pay the Individual Responsibility Payment

      i.    Payment for an adult, 1% of yearly income or $95/year per person (the greater) beginning 2014. Will increase every year until up to $695/year per person. 

      ii.   Payment for  un-insured child is $47.50/year or $285 maximum per year, per child.

      iii.  Payment due when file taxes, unless exempt.

      iv.  Must apply for exemption. Qualifications to be exempt include:

  a. The lowest plan you can find in the market place exceeds 8% of your yearly salary

  b. Income too low to require filing taxes

  c. Federally recognized tribes

  d. Recognized Health care sharing ministries

  e. Religious objections to insurance, including Social Security and Medicare

  f.  Incarcerated

  g. Not lawfully present in the US

  h. Hardships Exemptions:

     i. Homeless

     ii. Eviction or Foreclosure

     iii. Utilities shutoffs

     iv. Domestic Violence

     v. Death of a close family member

     vi. Disasters (both natural and man-caused)

     vii. Bankruptcy within the last 6 months

     viii. Existing medical expenses

     ix. Someone pays for child health care

     x. Your state did not expand eligibilities for Medicare under the Affordable Care Law
