Federal Health Care Insurance Reform

In March of 2010, the federal government passed health care insurance reform. This included the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) signed into law on March 23, and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 signed into law on March 30. Together these bills are referred to as the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Additional information and links are provided below to assist Floridians in understanding these new changes.

Federal Health Care Reform Consumer Premium Impact Notices:

These consumer premium notices were filed by 28 health insurers and health maintenance organizations who will be offering major medical health insurance plans on the new Federal Health Exchange and off of the exchange. The notices show the impact of Federal Health Care Reform on health insurance plan costs in Florida by comparing the premium for the new coverages to the premium costs of the insurer's most popular plan prior to Federal Health Care Reform. Consumers can view the summary sheet containing all companies and notices or select a particular health insurance company and look at the various health insurance plans available in either the individual and/or small group market. The plans vary by cost and by the level of benefits offered in each type of plan: bronze, silver, gold, and platinum.
