Recent Changes in the Healthcare Industry

Every American should be focused on staying healthy and keeping fit, regardless of their political view, especially since Obamacare has meant some big changes in health care. A US citizen with a preexisting medical condition can’t be refused insurance coverage anymore, under the Affordable Care Act, (ACA), and that is one of the most significant changes.

Visiting your doctor and receiving the medical treatment that you need should be a lot easier and a lot more affordable. If you are currently paying a high premium for your health insurance, perhaps because you are an aging baby boomer or a self-employed generation Xer, it’s highly recommended to use the state and federally administered health care marketplace to compare prices and packages.

One of the other big changes that have been introduced by the ACA is legislation requiring health insurance companies to reduce the gap between the low-cost premiums paid by young adults, and the higher amounts paid by older people.

You probably won’t experience any major changes in your healthcare if your health insurance is provided by your employer, as the ACA rules concerning large employers take effect. If you pay for your health insurance, it’s worth comparing your existing coverage to the options offered under the ACA, even if you feel you are satisfied with your coverage.

Like any other industry, supply and demand affect the healthcare industry, and you may want to make a doctor’s appointment as soon as possible if you need to. Appointments became more affordable for more people as new insurance policies come into effect.

As the number of physicians has remained about the same, but the demand for healthcare services has increased, making appointments as soon as possible is a good idea.

    Well as they say “the early bird gets the worm!”. So in this time where healthcare appointments and demand is at an all time high, you’re definitely right in advising to set appointments early on. Great article, thanks for sharing.

    While it is true that the health reform act has definitely made a headway into affordable healthcare, there is still much to be done. I just wish that politicians on capitol hill will also realize that healthcare is as basic as their need to breathe and eat.

    I think it’s great that a law has been passed that people with preexisting medical conditions can now have insurance coverage. Moreover, health insurance is now more affordable and not just limited to people with more money.

    This blog gives us awareness on the benefits and privileges of health insurance. Especially now that the Affordable Care Act is implemented, various people in different aspects of life and income can now afford to have a doctor’s appointment. I hope more of this implementation to reach the underserved people.

As this article illustrated, that the ACA will bring a paradigm shift in the health insurance industry, as aware citizens we should try and make use of all the privileges of this act. Thanks for the article.
