What’s Happening with the ACA?

There’s been a lot of conversation around health insurance this year—but just like in previous years, you’re still able to sign up for coverage. The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is still in effect. That means that birth control—including IUDs and the implant—is still covered without a copay. In Minnesota, you can sign up for coverage during open enrollment between November 1, 2018 and January 13, 2019.
What is the health care law?
The health care law, sometimes called “Obamacare” or “The Affordable Care Act,” has made health insurance accessible and affordable for millions of people.
The law includes important benefits for all Americans:
○ You can stay on your parents’ health insurance plan until age 26.
○ Insurers can no longer deny you coverage if you have a pre-existing condition.
○ Women can get birth control and other preventive care, like cancer screenings, for free, with no copay.
What’s going to happen to Obamacare?
The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) is still in effect—and will be unless there's a change in the law. Minnesotans who enroll during the current open enrollment period will have coverage throughout 2019, guaranteed, as long as they pay their monthly premiums on time.
