The Affordable Care Act and Adolescents. Health Insurance Marketplaces


The Health Insurance Marketplace will provide a new, simplified mechanism to obtain coverage in the individual market beginning in 2014. Families with household incomes between 100 to 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL) who are not eligible for Medicaid or CHIP may qualify for new tax credits to make premiums more affordable. In addition, any plan available to adults must be available for child-only enrollment for children under the age of 21. Open enrollment begins on October 1, 2013 for coverage as soon as January 1, 2014.
