May 2nd, 2014 — Important News for COBRA subscribers!
A recently released guidance by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced individuals currently enrolled in COBRA can qualify during a special enrollment period and purchase insurance through the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace. The time period for the special enrollment period is May 1 through July 1, 2014.
Previously, individuals on the Trust COBRA plan could only enroll on the Marketplace during Open Enrollment or when their plan expired. This new opportunity has the potential to help individuals and their beneficiaries enroll in a plan through the Marketplace that may be more affordable than COBRA.
As a result of the Affordable Care Act and this new CMS guidance, individuals can review plans and benefit options offered by a variety of insurance carriers on the Marketplace. Some individuals may be eligible for subsidies to cover a substantial portion of their premium. The total cost of a Marketplace plan may be significantly less costly than the COBRA plans offered Individuals interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should contact the Marketplace Call Center at 800-318-2596 or visit the federal website at https://www.healthcare.gov/
January 1st, 2014
The Patient and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) passed by congress and signed by President Obama in March 2010 ushered in some of the most sweeping changes to health care financing and delivery in our nation’s history. The changes will affect employers of all size and require significant attention by employers as the law is implemented over the next decade. Although a general understanding of the law is known, a more precise understanding of the many changes will require further guidance and interpretation over the next several years.
The MBA, BIAW NMTA Health Trusts are committed to providing timely and detailed information on the topic and aim to be your trusted partner and resource for navigating the changes. Our team is here to help offer guidance and resources for your company and employees. Click here for our Health Care Reform page.
