ACA Update as October Approaches

btn-ppacaThe deadline of October 1 for employer ACA notices is almost upon us. October 1 is also the date that the ACA Health Insurance Marketplace will become operational. Open enrollment begins October 1 with coverage starting January 1, 2014.

As that happens, more information is being made available.  The federal government–calling the Exchanges a simple and affordable way to get insurance coverage under the ACA–is promoting the system through several sources.

According to a White House release, “A new report shows that the Marketplace will give uninsured Americans access to affordable health insurance — and finds that average premiums are even lower than experts initially projected. For instance:

  • A working family making $50,000 a year can get health insurance for less than $100/month.
  • A 27 year-old making $25,000 a year could get coverage for an average of $93 a month.”
