Philadelphia Group Health Insurance   I   Health Reform Notice of Exchange
 
01:22
http://www.gmgins.com/ Philadelphia Group Health Insurance: Health Reform Notice of Exchange Under the Affordable Care Act, employers are required to reach out to each employee with a written notice providing information regarding the new Health Insurance Marketplace (previously called the Health Insurance Exchange). The notification requirement was initially effective March 1, however the Department of Labor delayed it until after the guidance is issued. Here is a breakdown of what you need to know about employee notification: Who is Required to Provide the Notice? All employers subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are required to provide the Notice of Coverage Options to employees regardless of whether or not they offer a health plan. Providing the notice is the sole responsibility of the employer- insurance carriers and third-party administrators of group health plans are not responsible for providing notice on behalf of an employer. Who Must Receive the Notice? Every employee should receive a Notice of Coverage Options, regardless of plan enrollment status or if they are part-time or full-time. However, employers are not required to provide the notice to employees' spouses or dependents. When & How Must the Notice Be Provided? New hires must receive the Notice when they are hired beginning October 1, 2013. All current employees should receive the Notice no later than October 1, 2013. The Notice must be providing in writing understandable to the average employee- it may be provided by first-class mail and/or electronically if the requirements of the DOL's electronic disclosure safe harbor are met. Below are two links for Model Notice of Coverage Options- one for employers who offer a health plan to employees and a model Notice for employers who do not offer a health plan. Model Notice for employers who offer a health plan to some/all employees: www.dol.gov/ebsa/pdf/FLSAwithplans.pdf Model Notice for employers who do not offer a health plan: www.dol.gov/ebsa/pdf/FLSAwithoutplans.pdf If you have any questions about our Philadelphia Group Health Insurance, please contact our Group Benefits Department at groupbenefits@gmgins.com or call us at 855-407-4450.

Health Care reform and its affects on individual and group health insurance coverage.
 
02:18
http://www.moorebenefitsinc.com/video-center/ A lot of people are wondering how the new health care reform will affect them? And, it will impact everybody in some way, I think the way that it's going to be most helpful is that it will increase access to health care to alot of Americans. The very first segment who will be impacted are people under the age of 26. Employers who offer health coverage to their employees and who provide dependent coverage will be required to allow employees to keep dependents on the health coverage up to age 26 and that's even if they're married and not dependant upon them for support. Another increased access is that an insurance company will no longer be able to limit coverage to people who have pre-existing conditions. That means people who are already experiencing health problems will still be able to get insurance which is exactly what insurance is there for. If you are an employer and you offer health insurance to your employees you may be eligible for a small business tax credit. You have to have less than 50 employees and there are income guidelines which may or may not apply to you. In 2014 when most of the provisions roll out if you're an employer and you have 50 or more employees, you'll be required to offer health insurance to those employees. Where as right now, employers are not required to offer health care to employees. If you have over 50 employees and you don't offer health insurance and your employees have to use a voucher to get it through the state exchange, you'll be penalized 2000 dollars per employee per year. And so, if you're an individual and you don't have access to employer sponsored health coverage, you'll still be required to buy health insurance and if you don't, there will be a penalty. And so, I think overall, more people will be in the system and the thought is, that the more people who are insured, the more we're able to level the costs among the population. Because the fact of the matter is, we're paying for the uninsured's health coverage anyway, 'cause the costs of the uninsured are shifted on to the private pay people. So I think overall it will be a positive thing.

How Health Insurance Works
 
06:30
When I consider purchasing an individual health insurance plan for myself or my family, do I have any financial obligations beyond the monthly premium and annual deductible? Answers: It depends on the plan, but some plans have the following cost-sharing elements that you should be aware of. Co-Payments: Some plans include a co-payment, which is typically a specific flat fee you pay for each medical service, such as $30 for an office visit. After the co-payment is made, the insurance company typically pays the remainder of the covered medical charges. Deductibles: Some plans include a deductible, which typically refers to the amount of money you must pay each year before your health insurance plan starts to pay for covered medical expenses. Coinsurance: Some plans include coinsurance. Coinsurance is a cost sharing requirement that makes you responsible for paying a certain percentage of any costs. The insurance company pays the remaining percentage of the covered medical expenses after your insurance deductible is met. Out-of-pocket limit: Some plans include an out-of-pocket limit. Typically, the out-of-pocket limit is the maximum amount you will pay out of your own pocket for covered medical expenses in a given year. The out-of-pocket limit typically includes deductibles and coinsurance. But, out-of-pocket limits don't typically apply to co-payments. Lifetime maximum: Most plans include a lifetime maximum. Typically the lifetime maximum is the amount your insurance plan will pay for covered medical expenses in the course of your lifetime. Exclusions & Limitations: Most health insurance carriers disclose exclusions & limitations of their plans. It is always a good idea to know what benefits are limited and which services are excluded on your plan. You will be obligated to pay for 100% of services that are excluded on your policy. Beginning September 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (health care reform) begins to phase out annual dollar limits. Starting on September 23, 2012, annual limits on health insurance plans must be at least $2 million. By 2014 no new health insurance plan will be permitted to have an annual dollar limit on most covered benefits. Some health insurance plans purchased before March 23, 2010 have what is called "grandfathered status." Health Insurance Plans with Grandfathered status are exempt from several changes required by health care reform including this phase out of annual limits on health coverage. If you purchased your health insurance policy after March 23, 2010 and you're due for a routine preventive care screening like a mammogram or colonoscopy, you may be able to receive that preventive care screening without making a co-payment. You can talk to your insurer or your licensed eHealthInsurance agent if you need help determining whether or not you qualify for a screening without a co-payment. There are five important changes that occurred with individual and family health insurance policies on September 23, 2010. Those changes are: 1. Added protection from rate increases: Insurance companies will need to publically disclose any rate increases and provide justification before raising your monthly premiums. 2. Added protection from having insurance canceled: An insurance company cannot cancel your policy except in cases of intentional misrepresentations or fraud. 3. Coverage for preventive care: Certain recommended preventive services, immunizations, and screenings will be covered with no cost sharing requirement. 4. No lifetime maximums on health coverage: No lifetime limits on the dollar value of those health benefits deemed to be essential by the Department of Health and Human Services. 5. No pre-existing condition exclusions for children: If you have children under the age of 19 with pre-existing medical conditions, their application for health insurance cannot be declined due to a pre-existing medical condition. In some states a child may need to wait for the state's open-enrollment period before their application will be approved.

Understanding healthcare costs: The employer-sponsored insurance system
 
02:54
Who is paying for your healthcare? To understand how healthcare is financed in the United States, you must start with the flow of money into and out of the employer-sponsored insurance system, which covers almost 60 percent of the US population under age 65. Of the remaining 40 percent, nearly half are uninsured, and the rest are covered by Medicaid, individual insurance policies or other public plans. Our focus in this video is on the 60 percent of people covered in the employer-sponsored market, though some of these dynamics may also apply to the other 40 percent. Here's how the employer-sponsored system works: For each employee, employers contribute towards the group health insurance plan. The employer contribution has been growing each year. Employers usually make payroll deductions from employee pay checks to cover the employee's share of the cost of the group health insurance plan. The plan has certain co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance and out-of-pocket limits that determine how much plan members pay to receive care. The combined share of payroll deductions and out-of-pocket costs that represent the employee cost of healthcare has been growing in recent years. Together employer and employee contributions form the pool of funds that pays for the care provided to members of the group health plan. Funds may be used for trips to the doctor, in-patient and out-patient care, and for pharmaceuticals and other medical services. The cost and volume of usage for each service vary geographically. The difference in cost from one city to another reflects differences in how care is delivered and differences in the amount that providers and payers negotiate as payment for healthcare services. While there is a great deal of variety in how these cost dynamics behave, the common driver of increasing cost is the underlying cost of care—the cost of seeing the doctor, going to the hospital, buying prescription drugs—and the volume of each are what most determine healthcare costs. And in 2012 that underlying cost for the typical family of four will exceed $20,000. Without significant changes to the healthcare system, such as improved efficiency or better coordination of care, this cost will continue to rise. For more on the dynamics of healthcare spending, read the Milliman Medical Index, available at http://milliman.com/mmi, or follow us at healthcaretownhall.com.

All group health insurance plans are required to have an easy-to-understand summary of benefits and coverage. http://www.bcbsla.com/State/Pages/Benefits.aspx This requirement applies to all health plans whether through an employer or through the health insurance marketplace. The Affordable Care Act requires that all health insurance plans use the same summary form provided by the federal government. This includes a uniform glossary of terms commonly used in health insurance coverage and coverage examples. These are a comparison tool that allow you to see what the plan would generally cover in common medical situations. The Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC) must be provided at key times, such as during open enrollment. And, anyone can request an SBC when shopping or enrolling for coverage.

http://bit.ly/11avEuW The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires large employers to offer qualifying health insurance coverage to all full-time employees -- or face potential penalties. Findings from a new study by the ADP Research Institute can help employers understand the relationship between an employee's income and his or her likelihood to participate in a group health plan. This insight can help employers adjust their employee benefits plan design to address compliance, improve participation rates and balance overall costs.

Health Care Reform for Small Businesses California
 
07:27
This video by http://www.benefitscafe.com , 323-721-9121, describes Obama care for business owners. The video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcQ5j8mu_Bk tells employers what's going to change in 2014. The new law requires that "California small group health insurance plans" must cover specific medical services or benefits. The way the rates, or prices, are calculated , changes dramatically. Starting 1/1/14, businesses need at least one eligible W2 employee to qualify for a group medical insurance plan. A sole proprietor or partnership without an employee must enroll in an individual health insurance plan. In California, you can't wait more than 60 days to enroll newly hired employees -- in all other states the "new hire waiting period" is 90 days. This means that when your group insurance plan renews in 2014 your waiting period will likely become the first of the month following one month of employment. The "Affordable Care Act" (ACA) also limits the number of plans an insurance company will offer. Blue Shield of California , for example, currently offers 40 plans. In 2014 they will offer only 16 plans -- and these include full and narrow network HMOs. Note that Blue Shield currently offers more PPO plan options than all of the plans they'll offer in 2014 under ObamaCare. Or, consider Kaiser Permanente, they currently offer 17 plans. In 2014 they will offer only 13 plans and number of their popular co-pay HMO plans with no deductible will drop from 5 to 2. This means that you'll likely have to pay a much more each month to the insurance company for a richer benefit plan -- whether you want it or not We know that some changes will likely increase small group rates. The "Risk Adjustment Factor" or RAF -- where rates can go up or down 10 percent based on the health condition of enrollees - goes away in 2014. So, groups with the lowest ,0.90 RAF will likely see higher rates. Beginning in 2014 the exact age of an employee will determine his/her premium. So a 31 year old will cost more than a 30 year old. Currently, employees in a certain age range, such as 30-39 get the same rate for the same plan. Also, the way rates are calculated for dependents will change. In 2014, each dependent will have a separate rate based on his or her age. Currently, there is one rate for a family, regardless of the ages of a spouse and children. These changes will likely increase the cost of health insurance for most people. So, what should you do to save money? The insurance companies have seen the 2014 health insurance plans and rates and they know that most people will pay more for their coverage. To delay the sticker shock, all insurance companies are allowing small groups to RENEW EARLY. "Early renewal" means that you can keep your current plan at the 4th quarter 2013 rates for a full 12 months. Many people are hoping that something will change between now and December 2014 that will reduce the rates...

Increasing Profits with more productive employees- By focusing on preventative care, the health insurance plans may improve the quality of life for employees and their families – and this is a return on investment to the business, to employees, and to our communities 3. Avoiding Health Care Reform assessments- Starting in 2015, employers with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees are required to offer affordable, minimum-value group health insurance. If they don’t, they may be assessed government penalties.. 4. Gaining Tax Advantages - Employers can deduct 100 percent of their employees' health insurance cost as a business expense. If the business is incorporated, the business owner’s own insurance costs are also deductible. 5. Receiving a Tax Credit - Small businesses with fewer than 25 employees may be able to receive a tax credit if they purchase small group health insurance for their employees and meet other criteria. 6. Passing along the lower health insurance costs to the employees - If you have 50 or more employees, you may find that our large group health insurance rates are lower than individual rates. Your employees may pay less and it makes a great addition to your business’s benefits package 7. Lessening financial worries for employees - With health insurance, employees feel more secure knowing they can pay medical expenses, especially in an emergency. That peace of mind can mean more focused and loyal employees. 8. Making employees feel valued. Employees will go the extra mile if they feel responsible for the results of their work, have a sense of worth in their jobs, believe their jobs make good use of their skills, and receive recognition for their contributions 9. Building higher morale – access to healthcare reduces employee absenteeism, and improves health and morale. Also it helps strengthen an organization’s culture and build employee pride, trust, and commitment. 10. Benefiting the entire society - The potential economic value to be gained in better health outcomes from uninterrupted coverage for all Americans is estimated to be between $65 and $130 billion each year.

Young Adults Get Health Coverage
 
02:00
Caryn Powers is one of those young adults who already benefits from the Health Care Reform Act. At 24 years old, she has Crohn's Disease, an immune disorder that attacks the stomach and intestines. "It's like having the stomach flu but its 100 times worse," says Caryn, Her medicine alone costs more than 3000 dollar a month. If she couldn't stay on her parents health insurance she says, she'd be bankrupt and unable to work as a nurse. "If I had to go off policy, I wouldn't get the meds I need, wouldn't be able to go to doc,"says Caryn. "I would be very sick." The Obama Administration says 2.5 million young adults can now stay on their parent's health plan up to age 26 thanks to the act. Congressman Henry Cuellar calls this an accomplishment because young adults are in the most likely age group not to have health insurance. "It meant that the coverage to those young folks in the nation went from 63 to about 74 percent in that category and that's a big plus because they now will have health insurance," said Cuellar. But as life saving as this was for Caryn, the young adult provision is not without limitations. Last year, the administration itself projected this one benefit alone could increase group health insurance premiums nationwide by up to 1.2 per cent. "In the state of Texas you have two insurance companies that really control the market," said Cuellar. "So instead of having two insurance companies, we will have four or more. "When you have more insurance companies controlling the Texas market, you'll have more competition. This will help us lower insurance premiums." High cost projections are precisely why republican candidates like Mitt Romney say ending the health care reform act is the first thing they will do. "If I'm president, on day one, I will take action to stop Obamacare in its tracks and I will get it repealed," said Romney. But Cuellar says if you look at the insurance premiums before the health care law, they kept rising every year.
