What Is Health Care Reform and How Does It Impact You?

18,067 views 5 months ago
What is health care reform? It's called the Affordable Care Act -- but what does it really mean for you?

For starters, the law could make insurance more affordable for some. It makes it possible for Americans with health conditions to purchase insurance. It also removes certain limits and restrictions sometimes included in health coverage in the past.

Starting in October, you will be able to shop for these new coverage options on your qualified health insurance carrier's website or through the new health insurance exchanges. You'll be able to calculate your monthly premium, and see if you qualify for tax credits or help paying for the cost of coverage.

By 2014, almost everyone in the United States will be required to have health insurance of some kind. If you don't, you could have to pay a penalty that may increase each year. If you're still asking, "What is health care reform?" and wondering what it means for you, explore our website at http://www.bcbstx.com/healt....

It's simple really: a 2"x 3" card with rounded edges. Your name is on the front, along with codes and some other numbers to help us look up your benefits. The back of the card has phone numbers and websites to help you get the information you need, whenever you need it. All of this is pretty standard. Our card holds something more, though. The Blue Cross and Blue Shield in the left corner means that this card is anything but standard. There are high expectations that come with having this card, expectations that have been built over the years by earning your trust. There is something more, too. It's that special feeling that comes with having a Blue Cross and Blue Shield card. It's knowing that the people standing behind the Blue Cross and Blue Shield card will be here to guide you through times of change. We are different. We care. See for yourself.
