Self-Employed Medical Insurance coverage is changing dramatically in 2014. Coverage will be guarantee issue meaning no one will be declined coverage. You will however need to apply during initial open enrollment (10/1/2013 until 3/31/2013), annual enrollment (10/15 until 12/7 each year) or special enrollment periods (for example, within 30 days after you have lost coverage). Do you qualify for tax credits or subsidies? If so, you will want to apply for coverage through the California exchange, Covered CA. What if you don’t have medical coverage? For most, this will result in a tax. For more information go to Resources: Educational Videos and click on “ACA and Individual and Family Coverage Basics.”
Small group coverage is also changing! Deductibles are limited, waiting periods have tighter limits and the way employees are rated is changing. If your company qualifies for the small business tax credits, you must obtain your plan through the California group exchange, called the SHOP. For more information go to Resources: Health Insurance Education and click on “ACA and Small Group Basics.”
