 ACT FAST before it is too late. Obama Care is on its way out.

Do you feel wore down, not sure where to turn. Have you lost your medical insurance? Do you wonder how you’re going to pay for your prescriptions, let alone what would happen if you or someone in your family gets sick. Where do you turn? What do you do?

Medical insurance is a must in today’s society. We use it on a regular basis, and no one wants to go without it. Now, you don’t have to! The Health Insurance Marketplace (Obama Care) is a one stop shop for your low cost health insurance needs.

 

What is Obama Care?

low cost health insuranceObama Care is the common term used for low cost health insurance, but the actual name is the Affordable Care Act. Due to the regulations passed with the Affordable Care Act, all individuals are now required to have basic health insurance that meets the minimum essential coverage. If you don’t you must file for an exemption or pay a shared responsibility fee at the end of the year when you file your taxes. The requirement to have insurance is known as the individual mandate.

Healthcare.gov is the official marketplace for low cost health insurance and is the only place you can get cost assistance. By using the marketplace you will find out if you qualify for cost assistance and out of pocket expenses. The cost assistance is based on your income. If you have an income between 100%-400% of the Federal Poverty Level you may qualify for cost assistance. In states where Medicaid has been extended individuals who make less than 138% of the FPL may qualify for Medicaid.

Individuals who have insurance available through their employer can still purchase low cost health insurance at healthcare.gov but are not eligible for the cost assistance. Six out of 10 Americans can purchase health care at around $100 a month and Nine out of 10 individuals who apply receive some sort of cost assistance.

 

Obtaining low cost health insurance through healthcare.gov can only be done during the open enrollment period.
