Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act began on January 1st, 2014. Open enrollment for plans and medical benefits usually falls on November 1st and lasts until December 31st of each year. Arlington Insurance Services is here to provide you with information on what the Affordable Care Act means to you.

Key features of the Affordable Care Act health insurance policies include:

  • Coverage will be guarantee issued and required; therefore, pre-existing condition exclusions or waiting periods no longer apply. In addition, most Americans will be required to have health insurance coverage.
  • All new medical insurance plans will have essential health benefits. These comprehensive benefits will include preventive services, maternity and newborn care and emergency services.
  • Based on your income, you may qualify for premium and cost assistance. Premium tax credits and cost-sharing may be available for those who qualify.
  • You will be able to access the Health Insurance Marketplace in order to compare plans and pricing from various health insurance carriers.
