Health Care Reform Timeline
There have been some big changes made to health care and more are on the way.Click the milestones to explore how the changes might affect you.
Patricia Wanderlich got insurance through the Affordable Care Act this year, and with good reason: She suffered a brain hemorrhage in 2011, spending weeks in a hospital intensive care unit, and has a second, smaller aneurysm that needs monitoring. But her new plan has a $6,000 annual deductible, meaning that Ms. Wanderlich, who works part time at a landscaping company outside Chicago, has to pay for most of her medical services up to that amount. She is skipping this year’s brain scan and hoping for the best.
Today we return to our series exploring lingering questions small-business owners have about the Affordable Care Act. Today’s question is a basic one: Will premiums for small businesses rise in 2015, and if so, how steeply? If you asked someone in the health insurance industry earlier this year — the executives at the insurance carriers or the brokers and agents who sell their policies — the word on premiums was grim.
Efforts by employer groups to establish caps on medical procedures and identify quality providers may get a boost from data derived from Medicare and other data bases by a patient advocacy group. The data reveal vast differences in billings for similar procedures, and uncovered major overbilling trends — exactly the kinds of situations employers are attempting to control.
Rep. Sam Graves, R-Mo., who chairs the House Small Business Committee, has sent a letter to Internal Revenue Service commissioner John Koskinen asking the IRS to do more outreach and education to help small businesses deal with the new forms required for the Affordable Care Act.
