Here are some frequently asked questions about the new Healthcare Law.I keep hearing about Exchange deadlines, when is the real deadline that I have to buy health insurance? -The Exchange deadline is December 24th, 2013 to buy a health plan if you currently do not have it. However, there is a grace period and the government will not imply a tax penalty if you go without health insurance for 90 days in Utah. Since you have to enroll and pay a couple weeks in advance for your plan to start, you need to enroll and pay by the fifteenth of the month before you want your Utah plan to start. However, please do not wait in case there are problems with the enrollment process.I already have health insurance, do I need to switch plans? -If you already have a insurance plan, you will not face a penalty at tax time. You may want to take a couple minutes and see if you qualify for lower premiums as many people in Utah do.I received a cancellation letter in the mail saying my current insurance is going to be cancelled, I thought the President said we could keep our health plan? -If you received a cancellation letter and are confused about the Presidents’ statement saying you can keep your plan, this is where Utah is at on the issue: Utah has not yet decided if they are going to honor the Presidents’ announcement of people keeping their current health plans for another year. However, fill out the quote box because it may save you hundreds of dollars to change insurance plans now!Why are Maternity Benefits on my plan when I don’t want them? -The reason Maternity Benefits are on all New Plans is because it is one of the ten (10) Essential Health Benefits that all health insurance plans are required to have. In addition to this, healthinsurancecarriers can no longer rate higher or exclude pre-existing conditions for plans starting January 1st, 2014.There are four (4) levels of plans available for the New Health Insurance Exchange. 1.
