Share Article

Experient Health launched a Health Care Reform FAQs Blog series on its web site to help keep the community informed on changes they could face under the Affordable Care Act.

Experient Health has experienced professionals who help guide individuals through buying an Individual Health Insurance Plan.

Experient Health benefits consultants are frequently asked how much will health insurance cost in the marketplace and how will marketplace plans be priced. Both were answered in Experient Health’s latest post in a new Blog series on Health Care Reform.

Basically, according to Experient Health, “prices of marketplace plans have not been set yet. Prices will be available Oct. 1, 2013, when open enrollment starts and you can begin shopping.”

All insurance plans available through the marketplace will be offered by private insurance companies. The insurance companies will decide which plans to offer and how much each will cost. All marketplace plans must be approved by state insurance departments. Prices are approved by state insurance departments as required by state law.

The marketplace, according to HealthCare.gov, is “a new way to find health coverage that fits your budget and meets your needs. With one application, you can see all your options and enroll.”

Application for the marketplace can occur online, by mail or in person with the help of a navigator.

“While all insurance plans are offered by private companies, the marketplace is run by either your state or the federal government,” according to HealthCare.gov. “Open enrollment starts October 1, 2013.”

Experient Health offers a private insurance marketplace.

“Some marketplace health plans will have lower monthly premiums and may charge you more out of pocket when you need care,” according to Experient Health. “Some will be higher-premium plans that cover more of your costs when you need care. Others will fall in between. All plans will cover the same list of essential health benefits.”

Starting in October when individuals use the marketplace to compare plans, they will see prices for all plans available. Prices will show cost savings based on your income.
