January 18th, 2014 : Take the Uncertainty Out of Health Care Reform
If you’re not sure what the new health care law means to you, you’re not alone. A poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation revealed that just over a third of the public had tried to find out more information about the law—the Affordable Care Act—in recent months. About half of the respondents to the survey said they remain confused about the law and its provisions.
If you have questions we can provide the answers you need. Among other things, our individual clients should be aware of the Shared Responsibility Provision that becomes effective on January 1, 2014. Under the provision, people of all ages, including children, must either have minimum essential health coverage, qualify for an exemption or make a payment when they file their tax return. We can help you understand whether your coverage meets the law’s requirements, how gaps in coverage will be treated and what circumstances qualify for an exemption. Contact us today to find out how the health care law will affect you.
