Millenials and the Affordable Care Act

I cannot take credit for this list of things that millenials need to know about the ACA, but a big thanks to Kaiser Health News for this list.

  1. Even superheroes need health care.
  2. The time has come – a lot of big ACA changes already happened… on October 1st.
  3. Obamacare marketplaces are like shopping online – something millenials are good at.
  4. Your coverage options are affected by a lot of factors, especially where you live.
  5. What’s covered under your plan also depends on where you live.
  6. Employers with greater than 50 workers will have to give employees coverage, but the options vary.
  7. Navigators, available both online and in person, are like the GPS of health care.
  8. Insurers can no longer charge you more or drop coverage because of certain health conditions.
  9. One of the most important things you can do is understand your plan!
