The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is set to come into effect on January 1, 2014. With it, a lot of changes will be made to the way insurance functions in the United States. Individuals will be required to maintain a certain level of health coverage, and those that are not provided health coverage by their employers and are under a certain income level will be able to get assistance from the government for their health care plans.
Businesses will need to offer affordable health care to their full-time employees, and they will be required to offer their health care options to their employees once they have worked for them for 90 days. In addition to this, there will be many changes to health care policies themselves. Insurance companies will need to provide a certain standard of health care in their insurance policies, and they will be required to accept anyone regardless of preexisting health conditions.
Businesses and individuals alike will need to make adjustments for the new changes in health care coverage. For more information about how the PPACA act will be changing health coverage in the United States contact the insurance experts at Steve Wilk Insurance Agency.
