A major provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the creation of state-based Health Insurance Exchanges (also referred to as, "Marketplaces") for individuals and Small Business Health Options Programs (SHOPs) for small businesses. Beginning October 1, 2013, enrollment in
Exchanges/Marketplaces and SHOPs will be available. The open enrollment period ends March 31, 2014. Individuals and small business owners can use Exchanges/Marketplaces and SHOPs to compare health plans for benefits and price, and select a plan that fits their needs. While individuals can apply for insurance in October, coverage doesn't begin until January 1, 2014. Small businesses may generally begin offering health coverage to their employees anytime after October 1, 2013. To learn more about Exchanges/Marketplaces and SHOPs, you can refer to the government site, www.healthcare.gov. For customized advice then contact me by e-mail or call 1-800-980-3048 toll free.
