Maryland Health Insurance


The Affordable Care Act, also known as the Obamacare Act requires all individual, including children to get insured or pay a penalty through the Obamacare Tax Penalty based on their taxable annual income and household size. U.S News generally advises the citizens to get insured because unexpected emergency medical expenses can easily bankrupt anyone who is not covered under any insurance. Those people whose income falls below the threshold to file a tax return are exempted from the Obamacare Tax Penalty. The Obamacare also determines whether the person qualifies for a tax credit or subsidy to pay for the health insurance. To avail the subsidy, it is advised to opt for a health plan that has been approved by the government of Arizona or federally approved. An Exchange Program is provided to the people who are not qualified for a subsidy, otherwise one can buy the many private health insurance plans available in Arizona’s policy marketplace. The official portal to buy Obamacare Health Exchange Plan is Health Insurance Marketplace.

The health care reform has included numerous affordable health insurance options for women, particularly pregnant women. The Affordable Care Act provides affordable coverage and also offers financial assistance to minimize any personal expenses. Legally all health insurance plans must cover maternity, prenatal care visits and newborn care health benefits without any personal out of pocket cost-sharing.
