Main market trends

High-deduction health plans are gaining popularity with the public

These are plans with a higher deductible than any traditional insurance plan. The monthly premium is usually lower, but you pay for more health care costs yourself before the insurance company starts paying its share (your deductible). A high-deductible plan (HDHP) can be combined with a health savings account (HSA), allowing some medical expenses to be paid with money free of federal taxes. The IRS defines a high-deductible health plan as any plan with a deductible of at least $1,350 for an individual or $2,700 for a family. An HDHP’s total annual out-of-pocket expenses (including deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance) cannot exceed $6,650 for an individual or $13,300 for a family (not applicable to out-of-network services ).

ACA and Health Care

0.7 million people were enrolled in coverage through the health insurance marketplaces created under the ACA, including 9.2 million who received premium tax credits and 5.3 million who have obtained cost-sharing reductions. In Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Nebraska and Oklahoma, at least 95% of market enrollees receive premium tax credits and/or cost-sharing subsidies.

Insurers can no longer deny coverage for pre-existing conditions, charge higher premiums based on health status or gender, revoke coverage when someone becomes ill, or impose annual or lifetime limits.
