Court ruling on the ACA does not affect 2019 enrollment or coverage

The most important thing Kansas and Missouri consumers need to know about the recent Texas v. Azar ruling is that it does not impact current health insurance coverage or coverage for 2019. Key points to keep in mind:

  • The ACA remains the law of the land
  • Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma confirmed, “There is no impact to current coverage or coverage in a 2019 plan.”
  • Consumers can and should effectuate the 2019 insurance plans they enrolled in through the Marketplace by paying their monthly premiums.
  • Consumers can still enroll in Health Insurance Marketplace plans if they qualify for a Special Enrollment Period.
  • The legal process will continue and we will keep you updated as new information is available.

 

Financial help is available.

Low-cost health plans are still available through Healthcare.gov. In fact, 85 percent of current Marketplace enrollees receive tax credits to lower their monthly premiums.

Educate yourself!

Marketplace plans cannot deny coverage or charge you more for having a pre-existing condition. Short-term plans or temporary insurance can discriminate based on your medical history.
Know the facts!
