Access to Healthcare

New Health Insurance Options
Health Insurance Exchanges (HIE) under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) opened across the country on October 1, 2013. Through the exchanges, heath insurance coverage is available to the general public regardless of current health status.

Health Insurance Exchanges

The ACA established Health Insurance Exchanges, also known as “marketplaces”, in each state for proper health coverage expansion.  The Health Insurance Exchange offers cost-effective options to uninsured individuals seeking the most suitable and affordable health plans.  Each state may establish and run the exchange in their state, or defer responsibility to the federal government.

Medicaid Expansion

Under the Healthcare law, states have the ability to expand Medicaid coverage with federal funds to individuals with incomes at or below the federal poverty level.  This expansion includes adults under the age of 65, who have not been previously eligible in most states.
