Affordable Care Act's Sign-Up Season Now Open

Can how you vote in the midterms bring down the cost of health care?

"It's very comparable to past year", said Kori Hattemer, the director of financial planning at Foundation Communities.

Open enrollment for Georgia's 2019 exchange, which operates under the Affordable Care Act, runs through December 15.

The agency says short-term plans may or may not meet all of a person's needs depending on what the plan provides and the person's personal health and financial situation.

The SCC says though these policies cost less, they also generally cover less than an ACA-compliant marketplace plan and they are not subject to ACA rules such as requiring certain benefits like maternity care, mental health and substance use disorder services or coverage for prescription drugs.

If you buy your own health insurance, the time has come to consider your plan for next year.

She added, "This year the president and Republicans in Congress have made it more hard for hardworking families to sign up for affordable health care due to their sabotage, including massive cuts for national outreach and enrollment efforts". "When first learning about their coverage options, young people need all the information they can get, and both in-person outreach and advertising make a difference in getting them covered".

"But we are providing enrollment assistance in all 67 counties by way of virtual, as well as over the phone appointments", Ray said.

Consumers should contact GCI at (866) 311-1119 or visit the GCI website to learn if they are eligible to receive financial assistance based on their income and family size.

The Bureau of Insurance says STLD plans may deny eligibility for coverage or exclude services because of pre-existing conditions and may apply daily, annual and lifetime dollar limits on the amount they will pay out. And check with your doctor to make sure the plan is accepted at the office. "The plan you have might cost more or less this year".

Of the 107,000 individuals who purchased individual health insurance in 2018, about 68,000 of them received coverage through a grandfathered or transitional policy.

Among the seven insurance companies that are offering ACA plans in Florida, rate increases range from 2.4 percent to 9.8 percent.

Nationally, the average premium for second cheapest silver plans is dropping by 1.5 percent, according to the Trump administration, which attributed the ACA market stabilization to the repeal of the individual mandate and expansion for short-term health insurance plans. Of that, 39,000 Iowans remain in the individual ACA-compliant market. The Trump administration also cut funding for healthcare navigators and removed the ACA's risk adjustment program. It also said in a statement that the exchanges have become more familiar to Americans seeking health insurance, somewhat reducing the need for federally funded navigators.
