Bedford Park, IL (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
“It is extremely unfortunate when any American loses their job and along with it their job-based health insurance coverage,” began Bill Hallberg, Chief Enrollment Officer, ACA Marketplace Enrollment Solutions (ACAMES). “The good news is that with the Affordable Care Act, consumers now have two laws that protect them by providing health insurance coverage options and potentially saving them money on their health insurance premiums. Additionally, for the first time, consumers have an affordable choice beyond the traditional extended job-based health insurance coverage, COBRA.”
Educate Yourself On The Facts Surrounding Loss of Job-Based Health Insurance:
“It’s a fact that many consumers choose COBRA coverage due to lack of information about their other health insurance options. They may not be aware of the new laws that protect them as a result of the Affordable Care Act,” remarked Hallberg. “Additionally, many individuals do not realize that they have a 60-day window under the special enrollment provision to consider their options and decide on whether to enroll for quality and affordable insurance in the Health Insurance Marketplace, or elect the Cobra continuation of coverage option” Hallberg concluded.
Many people shy away from the Marketplace option because they do not know where to turn for Health Insurance Marketplace enrollment assistance. This is where ACAMES’ team of licensed and CMS certified health insurance professionals could assist consumers.
