Delaware Affordable Care Act Rates
September 24, 2013
By Amy De Vore+
Delaware announced its rates and providers for the Health Insurance Marketplace. The First State has chosen to partner with the feds rather to build their own Exchange for the Affordable Care Act Bronze Plan, Silver Plan, Gold Plan, and Platinum Plan.
Delaware ACA Rates
According to Delaware Online, Delaware has a monthly premium range of:
These are of course without federal premium subsidies to help keep the monthly cost of paying your policy. As well as, the Enhanced Silver plan is the only metal plan that offers cost-sharing subsidies for that qualify, to help keep your costs down when you seek medical care.
DE Insurance Providers
There are 19 different plans offered by 3 carriers:
- Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield Delaware
- Coventry Health Care of Delaware
- Coventry Health and Life Insurance
Dental Plans offered in Delaware
As new ACA plans don’t have to include dental and vision, stand-alone plans are available.
- Delta Dental of Delaware
- Dentegra Insurance
- Dominion Dental Services
Off-Exchange Plans in Delaware
Most people are unaware that they have another option: off-Exchange plans. These plans either can be identical to the metal plans or a provider may offer extra benefits outside of the Exchange. Why would you choose this type of plan? If you qualify for subsidies, you wouldn’t. But if you know that don’t qualify then you can save time and protect your privacy, because Exchange plans require a lot of personal and financial information.
Agents, like the team at Medicoverage, can help with either on or off-Exchange plans, figure out which subsidies you qualify for, and if you qualify how much you will save per month. For further questions call 800-930-7956 or contact Medicoverage.
How the Affordable Care Act Helps the Uninsured
May 31, 2013
By Amy De Vore+
The Affordable Care Act helps the uninsured in a few ways. For instance, in the LA Times today there was an article about a woman making $12.68 an hour, mother of one child, lives in Los Angeles, and recently choose to forego surgery because she was uninsured. As of January 1st this woman would have options for health coverage.
How the Affordable Care Act Helps Uninsured
She isn’t qualified for Medicaid, however since she works she may qualify for job-based insurance as 2015. Until then and if her employer doesn’t offer insurance she would qualify for premium subsidies and cost-sharing subsidies, and her daughter would qualify for Medi-Cal.
Costs for Lower-Income Families
The article doesn’t state how old she is, but if she is 30, her Silver plan premium could be as low as $93 a month and her deductible would be reduced from $2000 to $500, and a reduced maximum out of pocket from $6,350 to $2,250. This would apply to any single parent to one child living in the Los Angeles area, making her salary.
How do Lower-Income Families and Individuals Get Insurance?
First, it’s important to remember for anyone purchasing a plan from the Health Insurance Marketplace you need your W2 paperwork and financial information handy like child support, alimony, assets. Then you can either go directly through your state’s newly established call center’s navigators or you can go through your insurance agent. Many don’t realize that agents can help with on and off-Exchange plans.
Lower Income Seniors
Seniors do not have to do anything as of January 1st. Seniors stay on Medicare and do not apply for the new metal plans. Make sure your friends and parents are aware that there is nothing for them to do, because states are vocally expressing their concerns about seniors being tricked by scammers into giving away personal information due to the lack of awareness in regards to the ACA.
