Navigating Obamacare: Helping you sort through the new healthcare changes

The new healthcare law states that everyone over age 18 must have health insurance of some sort by March 31, 2014.  Several informational ‘gatherings’ coming up this week to help you ‘navigate’ the exchange portion of the Affordable Care Act…

WEDNESDAY (OCT 2):   Allegacy Federal Credit Union is hosting a Health Insurance Marketplace Open House TODAY from 4:30 – 7:30pm at their corporate headquarters on Westbrook Plaza Drive in Winston-Salem.    www.allegacyFCU.org    774-3400

THURSDAY (Oct 3) “Making Sense of the Affordable Care Act” – The Shepherd’s Center of Winston-Salem is hosting an educational forum this Thursday evening from 7 – 8:30pm.

 In 2014, the Affordable Care Act requires that all citizens have minimum essential coverage or pay a fine. The Marketplace will enable qualified individuals and small business to shop for and buy qualified health plans online. In this webinar we will discuss the mandate basics, five levels of health coverage (Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Catastrophic), government subsidies, the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP), parts of a qualified health plan, enrollment basics, coverage areas, household income, tax implications, verification process, functions of an exchange, and the latest developments on North Carolina’s version of the Marketplace.

Health insurance experts suggesting to NOT be too quick to sign up.  Do Your Research on which option under the ‘Affordable Care Act’ is best for you.   www.healthcare.gov
