New York, New York (PRWEB) July 01, 2013
In October 2013, Ohio will begin implementing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA, ACA, or “Obamacare”), by opening the Ohio Health Insurance Exchange to individuals and small businesses to purchase health insurance plans for coverage effective in January 2014.
To provide information on the upcoming changes, ValuePenguin, a consumer data and research website, has released a comprehensive guide to the Ohio Health Insurance Exchange. The profile identifies the insurers who have submitted health insurance plans for the exchange and outlines the proposed plans under consideration based on the website’s research. Among the fourteen insurers identified by ValuePenguin are Aetna Life Insurance Company, Buckeye Community Health Plan, and the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Ohio.
ValuePenguin has also created a map that visually organizes the state of Ohio’s counties into seventeen rating areas. These rating areas are used by health insurance companies as a variable to adjust premiums they charge to policyholders residing in those areas.
ValuePenguin is a consumer data and research website that delivers insights and tools on consumer spending. Its analysts review and synthesize facts, figures, and fine print into salient and actionable intelligence for consumers and journalists.
