"The Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, makes health insurance available to the majority of Americans. In fact, failure to obtain coverage will result in penalties, but the process of obtaining insurance can be daunting. This brief handbook explains the law and its history and tells readers how to apply for coverage and any exemptions and subsidies if they are eligible. Editor Amadeo, an expert on the act, discusses the benefits of having insurance and how the plan is financed. Each chapter has references, and the book has a glossary and a bibliography to help readers. This is a useful resource, but libraries should also have information about local exchanges if their states have them." Barbara Bibel, BOOKLIST, March 15, 2016 issue
Obamacare can save you money, but only if you know how it really works.
Americans have been barraged with fifteen times more negative than positive news about Obamacare. As a result, 40 percent of the people who dislike it actually qualified for insurance subsidies and don't realize it. Hardworking, middle-class families need facts, not opinions, to get all the benefits they deserve.
Here you'll find:
A guide to buying low-cost health insurance Step-by-step instructions to signing up for insurance Directions to apply for Obamacare exemptions Eligibility requirements for subsidies Definitions of insurance, health care, and Obama terms Real-life stories of people who have already been helped
This handbook refutes the myths about the Affordable Care Act with research-based evidence. It reveals the seven reasons why health care costs so much, as well as how the ACA attacks those costs. You'll learn who really gets benefits from subsidies and who pays for them. Most importantly, this book uncovers how the ACA might save you and your family money in 2016 and beyond.
