Here Comes Healthcare Reform

ing January 1, 2014, most Americans will be required to have health insurance or risk paying a hefty fine. It's part of President Obama's Affordable Care Act. Whether you love it, hate it or are just plain confused, come January, the ACA will be the law of the land.

Don't Panic!

We're here for you. We can guide you through this process, no matter your situation. If you have private insurance you may be able to keep that insurance. If you would like to look at the California Exchange, called Covered California, we will be certified to help you with that. If you own a small business, we will be certified to help you choose between private insurance and Covered California.

Starting January 1, 2014, all health insurance will be guaranteed issue, whether through the private marketplace or through Covered California. No carrier can deny you due to preexisting conditions.

All health plans must cover a range of services called Essential Health Benefits. These include services like doctor visits, hospitalization, emergency care, maternity care, pediatrics, prescriptions, medical tests, mental health care and more.

Plans must cover preventive care services like mammograms and colonoscopies with no out-of-pocket cost to consumers. All newly sold health plans, whether offered by Covered California or in the private marketplace, will be required to meet these basic requirements.

We will keep you updated as we get closer to open enrollment, which starts October. We want to help you make this transition as easeful as possible! In the meantime, please call us at 323.848.7795 with any questions.
