CAN I STILL KEEP MY SAME DOCTOR IN FLORIDA IF I SIGN UP FOR OBAMACARE?
The Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, works with different insurance agents in your area. As long as you choose an insurance carrier that your current doctor in Florida accepts, then you should be able to keep your current doctor.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PLANS I CAN SIGN UP FOR UNDER THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT IN FLORIDA?
Florida residents can choose from 4 different levels of plans: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. These levels differ mostly in the amount you pay in copayments and deductibles. The higher the level is, the more you will pay on a monthly premium, but the less you will pay on a copayment and overall yearly deductible.
I have a pre-existing condition and heard that ObamaCare still allows me to get insurance. Is this true in Florida?
Yes. Regardless of what state you live in, you will no longer be denied insurance coverage due to a pre-existing condition. Therefore, in Florida, your insurance will cover any and all pre-existing conditions.
I am a Florida Senior. Will I get any additional benefits as part of the Affordable Care Act?
Yes. Just to name one, seniors are eligible for additional discounts on their regular prescription medications.
What are the different ways I can sign up for health coverage through the Affordable Care Act?
There are four ways. You can call 1-(800)-318-2596 to sign up with an agent over the phone. You can sign up in person by finding a location via the website localhel.healthcare.gov.
