We want you to be as informed as possible about ACA plans.
On March 23, 2010, the Affordable Care Act, also referred to as Obamacare, was signed into law. It was designed to overhaul the healthcare system and ensure that anyone can apply for health insurance and be accepted without health underwriting. When you consider the complexity of the original enactment and the subsequent changes, it is understandable if you are confused about the process of enrollment and the various ACA plans from which you can choose. At Jeannie Pierce Insurance Agency, our agents specialize in walking you through the ACA plans and the process.
We want you to be as informed as possible about ACA plans and the ten essential benefits they provide, namely:
- Laboratory services
- Prescription drugs
- Maternity coverage
- Pediatric vision/dental
- Ambulance services
- Outpatient care
- Emergency services
- Preventive care
- Rehabilitative services
We can also help you understand the legislation that provides affordable coverage based on household income and household size. The assistance is called a subsidy, also known as an advanced premium tax credit (APTC). To qualify for this credit, you must apply for ACA plans through the health insurance marketplace. We can help you with that process. Alternatively, you can apply for coverage directly through the carrier, but the premiums can be costly without assistance.
We want you to have peace of mind that you understand ACA plans and have chosen the right one for your unique situation. We take the time to learn about your Hickory, North Carolina family, so that we can make a recommendation. If you would like to know more about ACA plans, just give us a call, and we’ll schedule a free consultation.
