The Obamacare will surely affect everybody in various ways. The medical insurance exchanges will open a way for the health insurance plan shopping. Everyone is encouraged to have this type of insurance. The following are some ways on how the Obamacare can clearly affect you.
If You Already Possess Insurance
If the insurance that you have was created before the 23rd of March 2010 (time when the law was signed) the plan that you have will not change. It is already considered grandfathered in and doesn’t have to be give the needed Obamacare advantages. Therefore, you can compare the two plans and decide if which one will be a better deal for you and your family.
If the plan that you have was made after 23rd of March 2012, it may either be given the chance to be changed and necessary requirements will be asked from you or it will be canceled and you will be asked to avail a new insurance. As an example, the ACA will let you keep all the insurance plans that you have until the time that you will suddenly become ill, even if you have mistakes in applying for those insurances. The scope of the benefits of the insurance is lifetime and these plans cannot deny you as a beneficiary if you have a pre-existing situation. The rate hikes should all be approved by the state where you belong and it give you the freedom to increase your children as long as you are not yet 26 years of age. These are some of the essential benefits that the law has for you.
If you have an existing insurance from a company, that company will give you a subsidy in order to give you the chance to avail the Obamacare health insurance. If these companies will not do this procedure, they will be paying a penalty that might be difficult for the smaller businesses. The other industries might even stop the exchanges in order to gain better deals. It is estimated by the CBO that about 3 to 5 million workers might lose their current plans as an outcome.
Always remember that companies provide health insurance for the advantage of attracting competitive employees. They are willing to give greater salaries since it will give them a higher tax advantage. So, maybe numerous companies will not change.
If You Don’t Have Insurance Yet
You must have a plan before the 31st of March 2014 or you will pay about 1 percent of your income. You are free to choose and purchase a plan that will match to your healthcare. This will also help you determine if you are qualified for government tributes or tax credits. Each of the states is given considerable Federal grants to finance the exchanges.
If the income that you are having is 133 percent or less, the Medic Aid will cover your insurance costs, unless you are living in a state that is not covered by the Medicaid.
If income is below 400 percent of the poverty line, each month you will get a tax tribute to guide you in paying for the insurance.
