Getting Started
What is the Affordable Care Act (ACA)?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires qualified insurers to provide individual health insurance plans to enrollees that meet the minimum essential coverage requirements. These plans are designed to make healthcare more affordable and to provide coverage to everyone, including those with pre-existing conditions.

When you enroll in an ACA health plan, you pay a monthly premium and typically, a co-pay when you visit your doctor. It’s important to look at the deductible, which is the amount of money you pay before your insurance “kicks in,” and your out-of-pocket maximum, which is the total amount of money you pay annually before your insurance covers you 100%.

While all ACA health insurance plans include dental and vision coverage for children, they may not include it for adults. If you need vision and dental coverage, and your plan doesn’t include it, you’ll have to purchase it separately.

The Benefits
Most Popular Benefits of ACA Insurance
Comprehensive Coverage
ACA (Affordable Care Act) health insurance plans are required to cover a set of essential health benefits, including services like preventive care, mental health services, emergency services, prescription drugs, and more. This ensures that policyholders have access to a broad range of healthcare services.
No Discrimination Based on Pre-existing Conditions
Prior to the ACA, insurance companies could deny coverage or charge higher premiums based on pre-existing conditions. The ACA prohibits this practice, ensuring that everyone can get coverage regardless of their health status.
Subsidies and Cost Assistance
The ACA provides subsidies and other forms of financial assistance to make health insurance more affordable for low- and middle-income individuals and families. This can significantly reduce the monthly premiums and out-of-pocket costs for eligible people.
Preventive Care at No Extra Cost
ACA insurance plans are required to cover certain preventive services, such as vaccinations and screenings, at no additional cost. This encourages early detection and treatment of health conditions, potentially saving lives and reducing overall healthcare costs.
Coverage for Young Adults
The ACA allows young adults to stay on their parents' health insurance plan until they turn 26, which can provide a critical safety net for young people who are just starting their careers or who may not have access to employer-sponsored health coverage.
Caps on Out-of-Pocket Costs
The ACA sets limits on the amount of money you have to pay out-of-pocket each year for covered healthcare services. Once you've reached this limit, your insurance company will pay 100% of the costs for covered benefits. This helps protect against the financial devastation that can come with a serious illness or injury.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Affordable Care Act (ACA)?
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires qualified insurers to provide individual health insurance plans to enrollees that meet the minimum essential coverage requirements. These plans are designed to make healthcare more affordable and to provide coverage to everyone, including those with pre-existing conditions. When you enroll in an ACA health plan, you pay a monthly premium and, typically, a co-pay when you visit your doctor. It's important to look at the deductible, which is the amount of money you pay before your insurance "kicks in," and your out-of-pocket maximum, which is the total amount of money you pay annually before your insurance covers you 100%. While all ACA health insurance plans include dental and vision coverage for children, they may not include it for adults. If you need vision and dental coverage, and your plan doesn't include it, you'll have to purchase it separately.
What is a Fixed Indemnity Plan?
Fixed indemnity plans are not the same as standard health insurance coverage. Rather, they serve as a supplement to your primary health insurance by compensating you for expenses incurred on eligible medical treatments and procedures that are not covered by your primary insurance. For instance, if you have a $500 deductible for emergency room visits under your health insurance, you will need to pay that amount if you receive treatment at the ER. However, you can seek reimbursement for this cost by submitting your receipts to the fixed indemnity plan provider. It's important to note that fixed indemnity plans do not provide coverage for pre-existing conditions, and they usually have a predetermined list of treatments and procedures that they cover. It's advisable to understand which expenses are covered and which ones are not before purchasing a plan. Furthermore, the amount of compensation you receive from a fixed indemnity plan may impact your eligibility for Medicaid (if you are eligible).
What is a Community/Cost-Sharing Plan?
Cost-sharing plans are not genuine health insurance plans, but rather they are intended to act as an addition to your existing health insurance coverage, to assist you in managing your expenses. Essentially, when you obtain a cost-sharing plan, you are not actually obtaining health insurance. Instead, you are joining a group plan, where every member contributes a monthly payment, which is then used to help pay for the medical expenses that each member incurs. It is important to note that each cost-sharing plan has its own set of guidelines, so before you decide to purchase one, it is advisable to fully understand which medical expenses are eligible for reimbursement.
What is a Short-Term Plan?
Short-term health insurance is specifically designed to bridge any gaps in healthcare coverage. It is most suitable for individuals who find themselves in certain circumstances, such as switching jobs and experiencing a temporary lapse in benefits, awaiting eligibility for Medicare, not qualifying for an ACA plan but expecting alternative insurance coverage soon, or moving from their parent's health insurance plan to an individual plan. It should be noted that short-term health plans are not required to comply with the same regulations as ACA plans. Consequently, many of these plans do not cover pre-existing conditions, which may include pregnancy. Furthermore, some short-term plans may impose limits on the maximum payout amounts and waiting periods before coverage begins. As a result, it is crucial to carefully assess what is and isn't covered under a short-term health plan before purchasing it.
Why is it important to speak with a licensed agent?
When it comes to finding the right ACA health insurance plan, speaking with a licensed agent can be invaluable. The healthcare system can be complex and confusing, and understanding the nuances of ACA plans can be challenging. A licensed agent can provide you with valuable guidance and advice, helping you navigate the various options and find a plan that meets your needs and budget. They can also explain the various types of plans available, such as bronze, silver, gold, and platinum, and help you understand the different levels of coverage provided by each plan. By working with a licensed agent, you can ensure that you are making an informed decision about your healthcare coverage and that you are getting the most out of your ACA plan.
What important questions should I ask my agent?
When speaking with a licensed agent about ACA health insurance plans, there are several important questions you should ask. For example, you should inquire about the different plans available in your area, how much each plan will cost, and what type of coverage is included. You should also ask about any restrictions or limitations on coverage, such as pre-existing conditions or network restrictions, and what type of out-of-pocket expenses you can expect to incur. Additionally, it is important to ask about any incentives or discounts that may be available for enrolling in certain plans, and whether or not the agent has any personal experience with the plans they are recommending. By asking these and other important questions, you can ensure that you are making an informed decision about your ACA health insurance plan.
