ACA: Anthem Connecticut Grandfathered Plans Cancelled
All Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Connecticut’s grandfathered plans will be cancelled and will be enrolled into an Affordable Care Act compliant plan. There have been some articles written that say “some” plans, but according to our individual broker contact at Anthem Connecticut ALL grandfathered plans will be cancelled.
What are ACA Compliant Plans?
An ACA compliant plan is one that includes the essential health benefits such as $0 preventive care, maternity, and child dental and vision. These plans will have a maximum out-of-pocket cost ($6,350 for 2014), Anthem must cover a minimum of 60% when you seek in-network medical care, guaranteed issuance regardless of preexisting conditions, and there are no lifetime limits on what Anthem will have to cover.
If you have a grandfathered plan don’t worry they will enroll you in one of the new plans, but remember you have options. So if you want to check out your options call 800-930-7956 or contact Medicoverage.
