In March of 2010 Congress passed the Affordable health Care Act. It mandates several regulations affecting your insurance coverage. Here are the general areas affected.
Under the Act, you have new rights as a consumer. For example, insurers cannot deny benefits to anyone under the age of 19 because of a pre-existing condition. There are several preventative services available at no extra cost – that is, no co-payment or deductible. Perhaps most importantly, you can receive emergency care at any hospital withut prior approval from the insurer.
The law creates – or strengthens – state-based Customer Assistance Programs. These allow the insured individual new rights in terms of grievances, enrollment and education
The Act also offers new insurance choices. The Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan may help if you’ve been denied insurance because of a pre-existing condition. Young adults under the age of 26 can now receive coverage under their parents’ plan. And in 2014, Affordable Insurance Exchanges will make it easier to choose health plans. A
new type of insurer is created, the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan. This type of insurer is a not-for-profit organization – run by the customers!
Insurance costs are affected as well. Large rate increases are reviewed by the government. Lifetime and annual limits on benefits are restricted. The benefits of flexible spending accounts are expanded.
If you’re 65, you’ll be interested in the regulations affecting Medicare. The program is strengthened. You’ll have new protections; the prohibitions on abuses are tightened. In addition, you may be eligible for free preventative services.
Finally, a set of regulations will help small businesses meet insurance costs.
