Transcript of Healthcare Reform: Affordable Health Care Act

vs. Disadvantages A shared responsibility requirement, commonly called an individual mandate, requires that all individuals not covered by an employer sponsored health plan, Medicaid, Medicare or other public insurance programs, purchase and comply with an approved private insurance policy or pay a penalty, unless the applicable individual is a member of a recognized religious sect exempted by the Internal Revenue Service, or waived in cases of financial hardship. Firms employing 50 or more people but not offering health insurance will also pay a shared responsibility requirement if the government has had to subsidize an employee's health care The new law will provide new coverage options for young adults. Advantages The law will make prescription drugs affordable for seniors 2010 2015 2013 2011 Current Healthcare Plan March 23, 2010 Obama signed the Affordable Care Act. Which one is better? New Consumer Protections Improving Quality and Lowering Costs Increasing Access to Affordable Care (cc) photo by theaucitron on Flickr Increased access to care - Insurance companies will be required to sell policies to everyone regardless of current or past health issues. As a result, over the next two decades, tens of millions more Americans will get health coverage under the new systems. Health insurance tax credits- Starting January 2014, if your household income is less than $88,000 for a family of four, and your job doesn’t provide coverage you can afford, you are eligible to receive tax credits to assist you with paying for insurance. An advance payment can be made to your insurance company to help cover the cost of premiums. Non-compliance penalty- Most Americans will be required to obtain qualifying health coverage by 2014 or face a penalty. Lowering Costs Holding Insurance Companies Accountable The topic of healthcare is definitely a "hot button issue" right now. It is a great concern for the citizens in the upcoming elections. Some people argue for Obama's healthcare policy while others support Romney's healthcare plan, but overall, they are essentially the same plan. The healthcare plan is what keeps people from breaking the bank when they get sick or injured. It is worth thinking about since your own life could depend on the existence and quality of the healthcare you receive. Why should you care?

Health insurance exchange program- Starting January 2014, if your employer does not offer health insurance, you can buy it directly from an Affordable Insurance Exchange. The insured- For the other 256 million Americans who already have health insurance through their employers or another source, the impact isn't as dramatic. Parents will still get to keep kids on their insurance plans up to age 26 and many insurers will continue to offer preventative services, such as immunizations, without a co-pay. Big and.... ... small According to John Boehner, the minority leader of the House of Representatives, more than 87 million Americans can lose access to their current health care plan The Affordable Care Act added new requirements for charitable hospitals. On June 22, 2012, the IRS issued proposed regulations which provide information on the requirements for charitable hospitals relating to financial assistance and emergency medical care policies, charges for emergency or medically necessary care provided to individuals eligible for financial assistance, and billing and collections. *Preventive services will be covered with no deductible or co-pay.
*The law forces insurance companies to provide consumers with greater value by spending at least 80% of premium dollars on healthcare and quality improvements instead of overhead, executive salaries or marketing.
*Health promotion by means of illness prevention.
*Increase support for community health centers.
