What does this mean? Well, it means that you have an abundance of choices. That’s truly what it means. Applicants will come to find that if their employer already offers insurance that meets the minimum requirements, they can choose to continue coverage through their employer, or opt for an Obama Care plan, minus any governmental discounts in most cases. However, if your employer does not meet minimum standards for health insurance, then you may be eligible for certain discounts under ObamaCare that your employer’s insurance company cannot provide.
If you have opted to buy insurance on your own in the past, you will likely qualify for more discounts through one of the four ObamaCare plans. This will be greatly dependent upon your regular income and ability to pay premiums. If you already insured, the best way to find out what your options are with Obama Care is to simply visit the government website and start the enrollment process. You are under no obligation to accept any of the plans at that time, but it will give you more details so that you can make an informed decision regarding your health care plans.
Visit www.healthcare.gov to start a new application for enrollment and find out your options as a United States citizen that is currently insured. Once you have completed the application you will receive your eligibility results shortly. They may request additional documentation if you are applying for discounts, so be sure to promptly send them what they need to get your health care plan started.
