When it comes to the Affordable Care Act changes are coming not only for those on individual plans but group plans as well. New projections are showing that up to 80 million Americans that previously had group health insurance plans provided by their employers may be without coverage as of January 1, 2014.
The ACA is requiring many changes to the minimum levels of coverage that must be offered as part of a health insurance plan. This means a more comprehensive plan for employees and family members that are covered by each plan. Unfortunately, many small businesses may be unable to provide the new minimum levels of benefits because the cost may be too great.
Individuals and families that become affected by the loss of group benefits must then find coverage through the health insurance marketplace. Many individuals that are navigating through the ACA enrollment period have recently learned the value of an agent to assist in the process. An agent can help break the different policies down and also help ensure you have the proper coverage for you and your loved ones.
