Health Care Insurance News

Medicare in Kansas

How immigrants can obtain health coverage

Let’s take a look at the health insurance options for immigrants, and how they’ve changed – or haven’t changed – under the Affordable Care Act.


Medicare in Colorado

Nearly 900,000 Colorado residents have Medicare, and about 13 percent of them are under age 65. Since 2003, Colorado has required Medigap insurers to offer plans to people who are under 65 and enrolled in Medicare due to a disability.


Billions in ACA rebates show 80/20 Rule’s impact

Ever since 2012, millions of Americans have received rebates from their health insurers each fall, refunding portions of prior-year premiums that were essentially too high.


Colorado health insurance marketplace: history and news of the state’s exchange

Colorado has a state-run exchange, Connect for Health Colorado. Colorado enacted legislation in 2019 to develop a reinsurance program, as well as legislation that directs the state to recommend a public option design for lawmakers to consider in 2020. Insurers have proposed an average rate decrease of more than 18%, based on assumption that reinsurance will be approved and implemented.


Ohio health insurance marketplace: history and news of the state’s exchange

Ten insurers will continue to offer plans in Ohio's exchange for 2020, but some insurers are expanding their coverage areas, resulting in just a single county having only one participating exchange insurer (down from 42 single-insurer counties in 2018).


South Carolina health insurance marketplace: history and news of the state’s exchange

Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina's rates will be virtually unchanged in 2020; Centene (Ambetter) is lowering rates slightly and expanding its coverage area for 2020. And Bright and Molina are joining the exchange for 2020.


New Jersey health insurance marketplace: history and news of the state’s exchange

New Jersey has a state-based individual mandate in 2019, and a reinsurance program, which resulted in an average decrease in premiums. New Jersey will have a state-based exchange using HealthCare.gov's enrollment platform for 2020 coverage, and plans to have a fully state-run exchange by the fall of 2020.


Citizenship or lawful immigrant status can deliver coverage

Becoming a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, or lawfully present resident is a qualifying event that triggers a 60-day special enrollment period in the exchanges.


Mississippi health insurance marketplace: history and news of the state’s exchange

Mississippi uses the federally-run health insurance exchange, so residents who buy their own health insurance enroll through Healthcare.gov. Molina is joining the exchange in 19 counties for 2020. Mississippi has the nation's highest percentage of enrollees qualifying for both premium subsidies and cost-sharing reductions.
