Delegation promotes Affordable Care Act enrollment

Commonly referred to as Obamacare the ACA was intended to provide coverage for those with no other options

Experts agree that will reduce enrollment, but differ by how much. That has led state officials to advise residents to sign up early.

"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.

"There's a lot of confusion around whether the Affordable Care Act still exists", said Hattemer. The legislation, also known as Obamacare, has become more popular with voters despite numerous repeal attempts. These types of policies may cost less, but they also generally cover less than an ACA-compliant marketplace plan.

The marketplace still draws criticism for being too expensive, although the rate of increase in premiums has declined. Health insurance offered on the state marketplace has to meet certain requirements like accepting people with pre-existing conditions, the department said.

Last week, the Trump administration introduced a proposed rule which, if adopted, would grant states greater flexibility in pursuing health care strategies. The federal government will not call to sell you health insurance.

- If you do not elect coverage by December 15, you will be unable to get healthcare coverage for 2019. While the ACA provides states the opportunity to seek a waiver under Section 1332, sometimes called the State Relief and Empowerment Waiver, they have been hard to obtain.

Insurance companies offering plans in 2019 are Healthy Alliance Life Insurance Company (Anthem), Ambetter from Home State Health (Celtic/Centene), Cigna and Medica. For 2018, that's between $16,753 and $48,560 for an individual or between $34,638 and $100,400 for a family of four.

The overall current average monthly premium in DE is $750, reduced to $223 per month after factoring the tax credit. As well as working to get eligible residents enrolled in Medicaid, the department has created systems that will help connect those who do not qualify for the public health insurance program with other options, including the individual ACA marketplace, and potential sources of subsidies to offset the cost of these plans. "So we are open to everybody around the state who needs help, to the extent that we humanly can do it". It also said in a statement that the exchanges have become more familiar to Americans seeking health insurance, somewhat reducing the need for federally funded navigators.

Plans on the marketplace are spread among metal-level categories - bronze, silver, gold, platinum and catastrophic - and are based on how enrollees choose to split the costs of care with their insurance company.

You can't buy a short-term plan on healthcare.gov or your state's exchange, and as of now you can't use Obamacare premium subsidies to help defray their cost. But the ACA is still the law of the land and financial assistance is still available for low and middle-income consumers.

The Affordable Care Act's sixth sign-up season opens Thursday amid stabilizing premiums and more choice for consumers. All marketplace plans are exclusive provider organizations (EPOs), meaning they do not provide out-of-network benefits, with few exceptions.

Eighty-two percent of Delaware's current marketplace enrollees receive financial assistance to help pay their monthly premiums and/or deductibles and co-pays. For the 82 percent of Delawareans who now receive financial assistance, the average premium after tax credit is $122 per month. There will be many new plans available at new prices.

Mike Hewitt plans to re-enroll.

If you buy your own health insurance, the time has come to consider your plan for next year.

"Through my ENROLL Act, we can ensure that our neighbors keep receiving help finding the right health insurance plan for them".
