Health Insurance Marketplace FAQ



Health Insurance Marketplace FAQ


  • What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?

    The Affordable Care Act created the Health Insurance Marketplace, also known as the Exchange. The Marketplace is designed to help you find health insurance that meets your needs and fits your budget. The Marketplace offers "one-stop shopping" to find and compare private health insurance options. You may also be eligible for a new kind of tax credit that lowers your monthly premium right away. Open enrollment for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace begins November 1, 2016 for coverage starting as early as January 1, 2017. 

  • What kind of insurance can I buy on the Marketplace?

    There will be four Marketplace plans offered in Indiana depending on where you live, however Indiana University Health services will only be covered by certain Marketplace products. 

  • Who is “In-Network” versus “Out-of-Network”?

    In most cases, “in-network” insurance products will cover medically necessary services at Indiana University Health. If an insurance product is considered “out-of-network” your services will likely not be covered at Indiana University Health. Individuals with an “out-of-network” product will either be asked to pay for their services in full ahead, or will be referred back to their insurance provider for additional coverage options. 

    The below highlights which providers will offer plans which consider IU Health to be in-network. 

    In-Network

     

    Out-Of-Network

     

    CareSource Just4Me 
    All IU Health facilities and physicians

    Anthem Direct Access Pathway HMO/POS

    After the 15th and the last day of December – January The first day of the second following month

  • Will I be able to afford it? Is there any financial assistance available?

    Marketplace Insurance Affordability Programs can help to lower the amount some eligible consumers pay for premiums and/or co-payments/coinsurance. Premium Tax Credits (PTC) and Cost-Sharing Reductions (CSR) are the two Insurance Affordability programs. Affordability is achieved through advanced tax credits and reduced cost sharing. 

    A federal tax credit is available to help people purchase health insurance on the Marketplace. These “premium tax credits” are available immediately upon enrollment in an insurance plan so that families can receive help when they need it rather than having to wait until they file taxes. Payments of the premium tax credits can go directly to insurers to pay a share of the monthly health insurance premiums charged to individuals and families. 

    Some people receiving premium tax credits to help pay their premiums may also be eligible to receive cost- sharing reductions to help them pay their cost-sharing charges. These subsidies reduce the deductibles, copayments, and other out-of-pocket charges that people eligible for cost-sharing reductions pay when they use benefits covered by their health plan. 

  • Do I have to use the Marketplace exchange to buy private health insurance?

    No. Plans sold outside of the Marketplace exchange will need to meet the same new rules on minimum levels of benefits, and meet limits on how much more insurers can charge older customers. Insurance plans sold both on and off the exchange also can’t discriminate against those with existing health problems and can’t charge women more than men. Plans purchased outside of the Marketplace exchange are not be eligible for the subsidy available for those that purchase Marketplace products.
