Final California Health Benefits Exchange Plans Released

The California Health Benefits Exchange (Covered California) has released the final standard health benefit designs for 2014.  

Designs include two Platinum plans, two Gold plans, 5 standard Silver plans (3 Individual and 2 SHOP small group exchange), six Silver low-income plans, two Bronze plans and one Catastrophic plan.

HSA -compatible plans are available in the Silver and Bronze tier, one plan each tier.

Now we wait for the insurance carriers to design their versions of these standard designs for placement in the California Health Benefits Exchange.  All insurance carriers may not participate in in the exchange nor will they necessarily provide exchange health plans at each metal tier.

Also a reminder that insurance carriers will be selling metal tier plans outside of the CA exchange and those plans will not be quoting on the exchange web site.

Mo Brooks Introduces One Line Bill to Repeal Obamacare

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

Kaiser Foundation Interactive Subsidy Map (TrumpCare vs. ObamaCare)

An interactive subsidy map provided by Kaiser Foundation allows you to see the impact of tax credit subsidy (2020) versus income-based subsidy (current).  Sorted by county in all 50 states.  Those above 400% federal poverty level would do much better, those below, depends on county and income.  Most below 200% would do much worse.  

Subsidies under ACA are based primarily on income.  Tax Credits would be based primarily on age.
