Enroll in a healthcare plan that works with your budget.
Obamacare, formally known as The Affordable Care Act, was signed into law in 2010 by President Barack Obama. This law significantly overhauled the healthcare system in the U.S. and reduced the amount of uncompensated healthcare a family was required to pay for. Originally, under Obamacare, everyone in the country was required to have a health insurance plan. Those who could not afford a plan independently were provided with cost assistance.
Obamacare also established the health insurance marketplace, and you can purchase an Obamacare plan through North Carolina‘s market specifically. When you enroll in a health plan on the marketplace, you will be pay a monthly premium to keep and use your plan. Depending on your income, you may be eligible for a subsidy to help cover the cost of your plan.
Every healthcare plan sold on the marketplace and provided by private employers must cover certain medical services under Obamacare. These include preventative care, emergency care, outpatient care, hospitalization, pregnancy and newborn care, mental health services, rehabilitative services, pediatric care, and laboratory services.
Even though shopping the healthcare marketplace can be a beneficial way to find a healthcare plan, understanding all the coverage options, premium amounts, and other details can be overwhelming at first.
