2015 Open Enrollment is here.

ObamaCare open enrollment starts November 15, 2014 and ends February 15, 2015. During the open enrollment period you can enroll, switch plans, and get subsidies.  Switch plans by December 15th and ensure you have the right plan and right cost assistance.

Open enrollment is the only time of year you can get a major medical plan that count as minimum essential coverage in the individual and family market without qualifying for a special enrollment period. This is true both inside and outside the health insurance marketplace.

Walmart Cuts Part-Time Benefits For 30,000 and Rolls Out Health Insurance Help Centers in 2,700 Stores.

Well looks like the ACA is having an impact on Walmart. They cutting back benefits for part-time workers in an effort to cut healthcare costs before the looming 2015 mandate to insure full-time workers. The end result for the employees (at least in states that expanded Medicaid) won't be too bad, as employees can now get free or low cost health insurance through Medicaid or marketplace subsidies thanks to the ACA (paid for by taxpayers).

On another healthcare note Walmart is also opening health insurance help centers in 2,700 stores to help people sign up for Medicare and health insurance marketplaces.

At least the 5% of the part-time workforce that are loosing their coverage will have a short walk over to the help center to replace their coverage.

This should go over well at the upcoming meeting with shareholders and investors, but it may not sit as well with others. How do we balance the morality and humanity of having a safety-net, with the idea that large employers like Walmart use safety-net subsidies to push their responsibilities onto we the people? 

How do you feel about all of this?

About half of the uninsured across the country are small business owners, employees or their dependents.

When it opens in October 2013, the Health Insurance Exchanges will offer a new marketplace just for small employers. The Small Employer Health Options Program, also known as SHOP, will provide a range of high-quality plans and subsidies for eligible employers to reduce premium costs.

Small Business Facts: 

Employers with under 25 full time employees may be eligible for credits and subsidies on the exchange.

Only the .2% of small businesses with over 50 employees, who don't currently provide health insurance to their full-timers are required to purchase insurance for their employees.

ObamaCare Women's Health Fact: Over half the women in the United States have avoided or delayed preventative care due to cost.

ObamaCare gives 47 million women access to preventative health services at no out of pocket cost and makes it illegal to charge women different rates than men.
