Update on Health coverage
The Health Insurance Marketplace will be a new way to buy health insurance effective
January 2014 as key parts of the health care law take effect.
Marketplace is designed to help you find health insurance that meets your needs and fits your budget. It offers "one-stop
shopping" to find and compare private health insurance options. You may also be eligible for a new kind of tax credit
that lowers your monthly premium right away. Open enrollment for health insurance coverage through the Marketplace begins
in October 2013 for coverage starting as early as January 1, 2014.
"Never neglect little things. Never skimp on that extra effort,
that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not
matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which
should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You Are Special. Act It. Never
Neglect the Little Things"
SNFs are no longer required to submit pre-approval requests to MAC as the patient approaches
the mandatory $3700 medical review threshold!. Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) will conduct prepayment review on
claims reaching the $3,700 threshold with dates of service January 1, 2013 to March 31, 2013. CMS requested MACs conduct these
manual medical reviews within 10 days. At this time, there is no advance request for an exception process. Effective April
1, 2013, the Recovery Auditors will conduct review for all claims processed on or after April 1, 2013. Recovery Auditors will
complete two types of review. Read more
How You can Save Money on Health Insurance Premiums
in the Marketplace
Depending on household income, some people
may qualify to save money and lower monthly premium, but only if your employer does not offer coverage, or offers coverage
that doesn't meet certain standards.
If you have an offer of health
coverage from your employer that meets certain standards, you will not be eligible for a tax credit through the Marketplace
and may wish to enroll in your employer's health plan. However, you may be eligible for a tax credit that lowers your monthly
premium or a reduction in certain cost-sharing if your employer does not offer coverage to you at all or does not offer coverage
that meets certain standards. If the cost of a plan from your employer that would cover you (and not any other members of
your family) is more than 9.5% of your household income for the year, or if the coverage your employer provides does not meet
the "minimum value" standard set by the Affordable Care Act, you may be eligible for a tax credit.1
Note: If you purchase a health plan through the Marketplace instead of accepting health
coverage offered by your employer, then you may lose the employer contribution (if any) to the employer-offered coverage.
Also, this employer contribution -as well as your employee contribution to employer-offered coverage- is often excluded from
income for Federal and State income tax purposes. Your payments for coverage through the Marketplace are made on an after
