The Affordable Care Act (ACA) put in place comprehensive health insurance reforms that roll out over four years (beginning 2010) and beyond.
The ACA requires new benefits including tax credits that make coverage more affordable, and prohibits insurers from refusing to cover or charge more if someone has a pre-existing condition – like MS. Learn about what the law means for you through these information and resources:
As of October 2013, most people who did not already have health insurance could sign up through the Health Insurance Marketplace. However, Marketplace open enrollment ended March 31, 2014. Unless you fall under special circumstances, you can’t get private health insurance inside the Marketplace until the next open enrollment period starts Fall 2014.
