The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, created some big changes in health insurance. These changes are designed to give consumers increased protection and guaranteed minimum coverage for essential care. Plans that meet the criteria outlined by the ACA are known as Affordable Care Act compliant. All Obamacare approved plans provide coverage for:
- Outpatient care
- Emergency room care
- Hospital inpatient care
- Pre and post-natal care
- Mental health and substance abuse treatment
- Prescription drugs
- Lab tests
- Preventative services
- Pediatric services
- Rehabilitory services after an accident or due to a chronic illness or disability.
In addition, the ACA also mandates that these plans must be available to everyone. Click here for more information about Obamacare.
Health insurance not only protects you from large medical bills but also gives you access to a network of medical professionals in your area helping you find the best care possible. Additionally, the Affordable Care Act mandates that you must have health insurance. If you do not have health insurance, you may have to pay a tax penalty. Although some people may be exempt from this fine, the vast majority of people without health insurance will be subject to the penalty.
ACA Health plans come in five different coverage levels, known as metal plans:
- BRONZE plans: Pays around 60% of healthcare costs
- SILVER plans: Pays around 70% of healthcare costs
- GOLD plans: Pays around 80% of healthcare costs
- PLATINUM plans: Pays around 90% of healthcare costs
- CATASTROPHIC plans: offer the lowest level of coverage and are only available to people under 30 and those with a hardship exemption.
