My current health plan compared to the new Obama care plans.
Current private plans are based on health status and age. Older plans have lifetime maximums and do not cover maternity benefits. The new Obama Care plans are guaranteed coverage, regardless of any pre-existing condition or health Status. Obama Care plans have no annual or lifetime maximum’s and provide maternity benefits at no extra charge.
Can I keep my existing health plan?
Yes, you can keep your current health plan as long as it meets as a qualified health plan. Benefits of keeping your health plan are primarily to keep your premium lower, since benefits are not as rich as the Obama Care Plans. It’s suggested to speak to a licensed Broker to determine what will be your best option.
