What Is Affordable Coverage?

Kelley-Jensen2Author: Kelley Filice Jensen

I keep hearing that my employer needs to provide affordable health coverage, and if not, I am eligible to buy an individual health insurance plan and apply for subsidy (premium assistance credit).  How is affordability determined and who determines it?

Is my employer required to offer me health insurance or not?  I have heard conflicting information and I do not know where to look for health insurance or if I am eligible to apply for subsidy (premium assistance credit).  How is affordability determined and who determines it?

Health Insurance: Should I Ask My Boss About It?

I have a friend that got a notice from her work about the new health care law, but I have not gotten one from my employer.  Should I ask about it?  What does the notice say, and will it help me get health insurance?  Right now I do not have any health insurance, it is not offered at work, but I know that I am supposed to get some in 2014.  Will my boss start providing it, is that what this notice is about?

Health Insurance When Working For A Temp Agency

I work for a temp agency that calls me when they have an assignment.  I never know how many hours I am going to work in a given month, but one assignment can keep me at a Company for 6 months, it just depends.  Right now I have no health insurance, but would like to get some, starting in 2014, with the new law.  Can I get it through the temp agency, one of the company’s I have been assigned to, or do I have to buy it myself? 

Health Care Reform and Small Businesses

How does health care reform affect small businesses?  What classifies a business as small?  Does reform help or hurt small business owners?  There is a lot of confusion about this new law and the impact it will have on small businesses and owners of those businesses.  Maybe the business has never provided health insurance benefits to employees, but would like to and would like to know more about the state exchanges set up for small business owners.  Or maybe, the business owner has no legal obligation to provide insurance for his employees, even under the new law, but would like to help his employees enroll in affordable health insurance plans available with health care reform.  Questions and answers for small businesses are right here.
