The New Jersey Obamacare Law
The New Jersey Obamacare Law passed in January of this year was a big win for the Affordable Care Act. This law merged the state’s three health insurance plans into one, creating a single insurance company to provide coverage to New Jersey residents. The new plan was dubbed the New Jersey Health Benefit Exchange. If you are a resident of New Jersey and do not have health insurance, you are required to purchase coverage through the Exchange if you want to keep your current health benefits. The Exchange offers a variety of plans and is open from October 1st through December 15th. Coverage begins on January 1st, 2014. If you are an employer with more than 50 employees in New Jersey, you must also offer coverage to your workers or pay a penalty. If you are an individual who does not have any dependents, you can purchase coverage through the Exchange without having to pay a penalty. However, if you have children under 18 and you do not have coverage through your employer or the government, you must purchase coverage through the Exchange or pay a penalty. If you are not eligible for coverage through the Exchange but still wish to have health benefits, you can continue to receive them through your current health

Three Areas Where Obamacare Could Be Improved
1. Health plan design: Obamacare mandates that all health plans cover a certain number of essential health benefits, but leaves it up to the states to decide what these are. This means that some Plans may have more limited coverage than others. 2. Coordination between healthcare providers: In order to make sure that everyone who needs healthcare is able to get it, Obamacare requires insurers to contract with at least one healthcare provider in each area served by the insurer. However, many providers don’t yet have contracts with insurers, which can lead to delays in care. 3. Financial transparency: Many consumers don’t know how much their health insurance costs and whether it covers the services they need. Obamacare requires insurers to provide information about their rates and coverage, but this information isn’t always easy to find or use.
Moving Forward With Obamacare in 2018
In 2017, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) went into effect. The ACA is a series of laws that were designed to provide health insurance for everyone in the United States. The ACA has been controversial since it was first proposed, and many people still don’t have health insurance because of it. However, Obamacare didn’t go away after 2017. In 2018, theACA will continue to be in effect. This means that millions of people who currently don’t have health insurance will be able to get coverage through the ACA. There are several things that people need to know about Obamacare in 2018.
