*Open enrollment in the Insurance Marketplace begins October 1, 2013 for coverage effective January 1, 2014.

The Affordable Care Act Individual Mandate requires all individuals to have health insurance as of January 1, 2014 or pay a fine.

The forthcoming health care changes are confusing and will impact all individuals and businesses differently.  The new Health Insurance Exchanges or Marketplaces have been created to provide an easy solution to shop for and purchase health insurance.  Government subsidies are available for qualified individuals and small businesses.

Review the questions below to learn how you may be impacted and how your association’s private health insurance exchange may help you through this process.


•  Do you make less than $94,000 in Household income?  If so, you may qualify for a significant government subsidy.
