Richmond, VA (PRWEB) September 28, 2013
Wondering what qualified health plans are and what that term means under the Affordable Care Act (ACA)? Experient Health addressed qualified health plans in their latest post in a new Blog series on Health Care Reform.
“The ACA requires that all health plans offered through a marketplace meet certain requirements,” according to Experient Health.
The marketplace, formerly called exchanges, is the government-regulated marketplace for health insurance.
The requirements for qualified health plans include:
- Being certified by the state marketplace for criteria such as the size of the network, how the plan is marketed, and the how the plan helps improve the member’s health.
- Providing a minimum essential health benefits package.
- Following established limits on cost-sharing, like deductibles, co-payments and out of pocket maximums.
- Charging the same premium both on and off the marketplace.
