Companies Urged to Prepare for Obamacare in 2014
January 30, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- To date, the US Government urges large companies to prepare for Obamacare to be implemented in 2014. The said act, which is previously known as The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aims to offer better healthcare plans to employees.

Obamacare will affect hundreds of businesses and employees, as it imposes penalties to young workers who choose to have cheap health insurance rather than an expensive one. To adjust with the policies stipulated in the act, companies and employees will be given one year to prepare.

One of the provisions entailed in the new law on healthcare commands open market creation for the healthcare industry. Healthcare insurance exchanges will permit uninsured employees to buy affordable healthcare plans. It is expected that there will be a stiff competition among healthcare insurance companies, so the consumers will emerge as winners.

In due course, employees may also choose to provide subsidies for employees to look for coverage through the exchanges instead of providing plans sponsored by the company. As of now, it is still not clear as to how the newly enacted law will affect the insurance's cost once it is officially implemented next year. Some expect that the prices will rise as more ill individuals will enter the pool of health insurance. On the other hand, some expect that it will be more affordable as a higher number of healthy people will buy health insurance.

There is also a possibility that the health benefits will be reduced, as Obamacare will make individuals pay more for their company-sponsored health insurance. To deal with this, individuals must have a spending account or health savings account that goes along with their health plans. This will permit them to pay for their medical expenses with pre-tax money, so they can save 20%-30% on a portion of their health expense.

The implementation of Obamacare is fast approaching. This is the reason why the government currently urges companies and employees to prepare for this act before it is finally implemented. There are several ways on how to prepare for Obamacare. Individuals just have to know the step-by-step procedures for them to reap its benefits.
