The Affordable Care Act:
What does it mean to you?

The Affordable Care Act is now law
and the deadline to enroll is January 31, 2016.





 

Alabama residents are now able to shop through an online Marketplace to compare insurance rates and choose an insurance plan. Plans for the Quality of Life service area are available through BlueCross and BlueShield and United Healthcare.

A variety of plans are available and all plans are required to provide free preventive care. Insurance companies cannot set lifetime limits on essential care. PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS WILL BE COVERED UNDER ALL NEW HEALTH PLANS in the Marketplace.

 

Each of these plans covers a wide range of essential health benefits including:
Ambulatory Patient Services       Prescription Drugs
Emergency Services                    Rehabilitation Services
Hospitalization                               Laboratory Services
Maternity Care                               Preventive Care
Mental Health                                 Pediatric Services

 

Tax credits will make insurance more affordable for those with incomes up to four times that of the Federal Poverty Rate (determined by household size and income). Small business owners can enroll employees and receive a tax credit worth up to 50% of contributions toward employees' premium costs (up to 35% for tax-exempt employers).

 

At Quality of Life, our staff is trained to assist individuals in obtaining more information about securing insurance under the Affordable Care Act and in navigating the online Health Insurance Marketplace.
