    Dear Family,

    Because being uninsured will NOT be an option for 95% of all households going forward in 2014 … it is imperative that you choose! Why? Because, by ignoring your benefits of “Healthcare “ … you’ll be subject to strict financial penalties. Why? Because the only way for the Healthcare Plan to work, is through maximum participation.


    Getting Covered:

    A one-page guide to the Health Insurance Marketplace

    A quick rundown on the most important things to know about the Health Insurance Marketplace, sometimes known as the health insurance “exchange.”
    The new Health Insurance Marketplace helps uninsured people find health coverage.

    When you fill out the Marketplace application they will tell you if you qualify for:

    1.Private health insurance plans. We’ll tell you whether you qualify for lower costs based on your household size and income. Plans cover essential health benefits,pre-existing conditions, and preventive care. If you don’t qualify for lower costs, you can still use the Marketplace to buy insurance at the standard price.

    2.Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). These programs provide coverage to millions of families with limited income. If it looks like you qualify, we’ll share information with your state agency and they’ll contact you. Many but not all states are expanding Medicaid in 2014 to cover more people.

    No matter what state you live in, you can use the Marketplace. Some states operate their own Marketplace. In some states, the Marketplace is run by the Federal government. Find the Health Insurance Marketplace in your state.

    Most people must have health coverage in 2014 or pay a fee.If you don’t have coverage in 2014, you’ll have to pay a penalty of $95 per adult, $47.50 per child, or 1% of your income (whichever is higher). The fee increases every year. Some people may qualify for an exemption to this fee. If you enroll by March 31, 2014, you won’t have to pay the fee for any month before your coverage began.

    You’re considered covered if you have Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, any job-based plan, any plan you bought yourself, COBRA, retiree coverage, TRICARE, VA health coverage, or some other kinds of health coverage.

    If you’re eligible for job-based insurance, you can consider switching to a Marketplace plan. But you won’t qualify for lower costs based on your income unless the job-based insurance is unaffordable or doesn’t meet minimum requirements. You also may lose any contribution your employer makes to your premiums.

    If you have Medicare, you’re considered covered and don’t have to make any changes.You can’t use the Marketplace to buy a supplemental or dental plan.

    Marketplace open enrollment ends March 31, 2014. If you enroll by December 15, 2013, coverage can begin as soon as January 1, 2014.

    Greetings Everyone,:)

    I was led to begin this thread because of conversations I've had with my People throughout this country concerning healthcare. I'm sure that it wouldn't surprise anyone to know how poorly we are covered within almost every economic level that we've achieved!

    But when we get sick & we've been smoke-screened into thinking that our current plan is sufficient (that's if we're blessed enough to have coverage) and we find out the inadequacies ... WHAT THEN????

    OR
    We own a business ... a business that employs others - to the levels that "require" that we carry healthcare benefits for employees ... WHAT THEN???

    The SHOP Marketplace is Open for Business!

    Questions about SHOP? Call 1-800-706-7893 (TTY: 1-800-706-7915) Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST

    What is the SHOP Marketplace?

    he Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) is a new program that simplifies the process of buying health insurance for your small business.
    For 2014, the SHOP Marketplace is open to employers with 50 or fewer full-time-equivalent employees (FTEs). The advantages of using SHOP include:
    • You control the coverage you offer and how much you pay toward employee premiums.
    • You can compare health plans online on an apples-to-apples basis, which helps you make a decision that's right for your business.
    • You may qualify for a small business health care tax credit worth up to 50% of your premium costs. You can still deduct from your taxes the rest of your premium costs not covered by the tax credit. Beginning 2014 the tax credit is available only for plans purchased through SHOP.

    In the Spirit of Update,




    Why the Assault on Obamacare Is Unfounded and Sadistic


    This week a Republican friend of mine sent me an email asking why I had suddenly gone silent on Obamacare, except he called it Nobamacare, and went on to gloat about how it was a disaster. Other than the fact that I have written about it, what struck me was the barely hidden sense of glee in his message. He was taking pure pleasure in the ACA's rollout problems.
    The glitches with the HealthCare.gov website and the abrupt cancellation of insurance policies for some Americans are certainly problems that need to be addressed, but they are by no means a death sentence for the landmark law and nor are they as calamitous as the GOP would like us to believe they are.

    Thank you Clyde!!!

    Thank you for the diligence you show in TRUTH telling!

    Our President has been vilified for DARING to go where NO Caucasian has gone before! Our President, an African American MAN ... mastered the political game of politics long enough to see into law, that every human-being in this land could be afforded "substantially good" health insurance!

    And the ONLY retort from his haters has to do with the "fake" - overblown "glitches"???? of a website??? A website??? Really???

    Did you know that there are factions sourced DEEP in the GOP (aka David & Charles Koch - The Koch brothers), that have a ground game - going state to state, trying to "strong-arm" Governors & other state legislative officers to deny certain portion of this plan / Law to their own citizens ... in hopes to ahhh ... DERAIL Obamacare???

    yvw ... Gracious, it's the least we can do, keep our peeps informed with Affordable Care Act (Obama he cares) information that's readily available. It was easy post here:)

    Yes, I'm all too familiar with the grievous plot against President Obama's signature accomplishment, rivaled on by the Clinton's failed attempt at universal health care; its tracked daily in the Politics from the Black Perspective Thread.

    Actually, he put pressure on Mr. Obama by indicating the President should make his word good for the 5% in the individual market to keep their junk insurance; a promise he didn't make before Congress, clearly, a political move to distance Hillary from the President.

    Another sad example of how some of us can find glee in the fact that the HealthCare begin offered by POTUS is there to help us, just as much if not more than anyone else. How can people be so heartless. There are prolly ppl in his family or someone he knows that need this service very badly, and to be able to get it regardless of existing conditions, is an amazing feat that Mr. Obama pushed thru.
