Affordable Care Act

The U.S. Census Bureau released their annual report on health insurance coverage in the United States which shows the number of uninsured Americans rose from 2017 to 2018.
Ever since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s (PPACA) main requirements were implemented in 2014, individual health insurance markets across the country have been struggling. Premiums have doubled and even tripled in some states.
Today we are taking a major step toward empowering states to address the problems caused by the ACA by issuing new guidance giving them broader flexibility to waive ACA regulations through State Relief and Empowerment Waivers.
Millions of Americans enjoy the flexibility, lower premiums, and tax advantages of enrolling in a Health Savings Account (HSA) through their jobs. But did you know that you can also enroll in an HSA-eligible High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) in the individual health insurance market through HealthCare.gov?
