This is the year that the Affordable Care Act takes effect, and I thought this flow chart from the Federal Office might help anyone needing some guidance on insurance. This information is found here: 2014 ACA decision flow chart for Christian Scientists.
Beginning in 2014, under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), virtually all Americans will need to have a medical health insurance plan that meets federal requirements, or pay a tax penalty. So, like other Americans, Christian Scientists must think through their options under the ACA and how to comply with the law.
Looking for some guidance as you think through your options regarding the health care reform law in 2014? Check out this flow chart we’ve created for informational purposes (the Church does not provide legal advice).
If you don’t have qualifying or any coverage and would like to purchase a plan, you can visit your state’s online health insurance marketplace to see what your options are and enroll.
