Ad on Bacon's health care vote is partly true

  • Democrats spent significantly more on health care ads this cycle than Republicans have

"It's very comparable to a year ago", said Kori Hattemer, the director of financial planning at Foundation Communities.

Members of New Hampshire's Democratic congressional delegation are urging residents to carefully consider their health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act. In the past, consumers would pay a penalty if they were not enrolled in a health plan.

This is the first enrollment period after federal officials removed the tax penalty for people who fail to purchase health insurance, a former requirement under the Affordable Care Act.

"But we are providing enrollment assistance in all 67 counties by way of virtual, as well as over the phone appointments", Ray said.

If you buy insurance on the individual market - either because you don't get insurance from your employer or you work for yourself - your best coverage options are likely still in the Obamacare market. To get those lower prices, most of these plans do not cover prescription drugs, maternity care, mental health or substance abuse treatments.

She says there are several low-priced plans - and even plans with no premiums at all - that will give you a discount based on income. "When first learning about their coverage options, young people need all the information they can get, and both in-person outreach and advertising make a difference in getting them covered".

Americans with incomes between 138 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty level may qualify for federal subsidies to help pay for health insurance. About 85 percent of Louisiana residents qualified for a subsidy this year.

"Lack of awareness about coverage options, particularly financial help and deadlines, is one of the biggest barriers in reaching the remaining uninsured".

Consumers should contact GCI at (866) 311-1119 or visit the GCI website to learn if they are eligible to receive financial assistance based on their income and family size.

Open enrollment runs through January 31, but for coverage that starts January 1, you'll have to sign up by December 15.

This year, consumers can also sign up for short-term insurance plans.

If shopping for a health insurance policy online, make sure to use a legitimate site, such as the page.

"These plans are intended as fillers when you're in between jobs".

"Because of changes with the individual mandate we will have to wait and see what Delawareans do, but we're encouraging everyone who is able to purchase and have insurance coverage to do so", said Walker.

Insurance companies offering plans in 2019 are Healthy Alliance Life Insurance Company (Anthem), Ambetter from Home State Health (Celtic/Centene), Cigna and Medica. For small group plans, costs are expected to increase 0.1 percent.

Nationally, the average premium for second cheapest silver plans is dropping by 1.5 percent, according to the Trump administration, which attributed the ACA market stabilization to the repeal of the individual mandate and expansion for short-term health insurance plans.

But federal funding for navigators who help people sign up in Florida was cut from $4.5 million last year to $1.25 million this year. That's compared with 28.1 million Americans without insurance the prior year.
