Health Insurance Marketplace
Starting in 2014, there’ll be a new way for people to buy health insurance. As you know, the Affordable Care Act created unprecedented opportunities for millions of Americans to access health insurance. This includes establishing the Health Insurance Marketplace, sometimes called “Exchanges.”
Help us spread the word about this new program
People will be able to compare all their health insurance options in one place, and know that plans are meeting state and federal standards. Health insurance will also be more affordable for many families, thanks to new rules that make it easier than ever to get help with costs.
Different financial assistance programs will be directly linked in, including Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and tax credits that can help pay private health plan premiums in advance.
New options for small employers, too
Small employers will be able to use this new program to make health insurance available to their employees. They’ll have the option to choose the level of coverage they’ll offer and define how much they’ll contribute towards their employees’ coverage.
