Questions about the Wilds of the Affordable Care Act

With another provision of the Affordable Care Act being implemented - new healthcare marketplaces, or “exchanges” are set to come online October 1st - we’ve been hearing many questions. For example...

 

Are families who can’t afford the employer provided health insurance eligible for subsidies through the new health insurance marketplace?

It’s nearly here! October will bring the unveiling of your state’s health insurance marketplace. There will be no more guessing. You’ll be able to go to the marketplace and find the health coverage that’s right for your family, discover whether you qualify for federal subsidies, and how much insurance might cost for you.

If you have questions or need to know where to look, one place to start is www.healthcare.gov, or call 1.800.318.2596. Now, on to your questions!

Rural Areas Lacking Dentists

Rural America has too few dentists, and some counties have no dental services at all. A recent University of Nebraska Medical Center study that focused on that state reflects a problem found across rural America. Further complicating the shortage of dental care is the fact that many dentists in rural areas are nearing retirement.

The exodus of soon to retire dentists from rural practice will further accelerate the situation. Sadly, too few dentists are being educated to replace them. Even fewer are trained to handle unique, rural dental challenges.
