Health Care Insurance News

Can small businesses use the ACA’s health insurance marketplaces (exchanges)?

Q. Can small businesses use the ACA’s health insurance marketplaces (exchanges)? A. The Affordable Care Act included an enrollment platform called SHOP (Small Business Health Options Program), an exchange where businesses could compare plans and enroll in coverage for their employees.


Kentucky and the ACA’s Medicaid expansion

HHS approved Kentucky's Medicaid work requirement, but a federal judge rejected the waiver and sent it back to HHH for additional review. HHS reapproved the waiver in November 2018, with a work requirement set to take effect in April 2019, but the judge blocked it again in March 2019, and implementation of the work requirement has been delayed again.


Short-term health insurance in Louisiana

Louisiana state regulations restrict insurers' exclusion of coverage for pre-existing conditions. Short-term health insurance plans are not subject to the restrictions, as long as they have terms of no more than six months. Some insurers offer longer short-term plans, with durations of 11 to 12 months, but their pre-existing condition lookback period cannot exceed 12 months.


Should I keep my grandmothered health plan?

If your current health insurance policy is not grandfathered but was in effect prior to 2014, your plan is considered a transitional, or “grandmothered” policy. These plans are not fully ACA-compliant, and were purchased between March 23, 2010 – when the ACA was signed into law – and October 1, 2013 (in some states, policies purchased through December 31, 2013, are considered grandmothered). In many states, they can continue to remain in force throughout 2019.


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

Medica was the only insurer offering plans for 2018 and that continues to be the case for 2019. Enrollment dropped slightly for 2019, after growing in 2018. Due to the way the cost of CSR is being added to silver plan rates, some enrollees can obtain coverage at no cost, after much larger premium subsidies are applied. For 2019, the average rate increase was just over 2 percent, but that's due in part to the fact that Medica switched their plans from PPOs to EPOs.


Idaho and the ACA’s Medicaid expansion

By a wide margin, Idaho voters approved a ballot initiative to expand Medicaid. But Idaho has enacted legislation that calls for various modifications to the voter-approved Medicaid expansion, including a work requirement.


Short-term health insurance in Idaho

Short-term plans in Idaho can have terms of up to 364 days. Short-term plans were previously defined in Idaho as being non-renewable, but legislation enacted in April 2019 allows "enhanced" short-term plans to be renewable.

North Dakota health insurance

A guide to individual health insurance in North Dakota, including its marketplace, open enrollment dates, insurers, Medicaid expansion, short-term regulations and Medicare.


Medicare in Washington

Washington has several important Medigap consumer protections, but does not require Medigap insurers to offer plans to people under age 65. The state's pre-ACA high-risk pool is still operational, however, and serves as a safety net.
