New Health Insurance Marketplace Does not affect Medicare recipients


Posted on Oct 04, 2013

The Health Insurance Marketplace Goes Live

The time has finally arrived! On October 1, Americans can begin signing up for health care coverage under the Affordable Care Act. What does this mean for Americans? More Americans now qualify to get medical coverage that fits their needs and budget.

What does this mean for people also receiving Medicare? If you or someone you know receives Medicare coverage, we have good news: the Affordable Care Act will have no effect on Medicare benefits. Medicare is not part of the Health Insurance Marketplace, so if you are a Medicare beneficiary, you do not have to replace your Medicare coverage with Marketplace coverage.

If you don’t have Medicare and you need health insurance or know someone who does, learn more at the Health Insurance Marketplace at www.healthcare.gov or call toll-free 1-800-318-2596 (TTY 1-855-889-4325).

At Keefe Disability Law we can help you with a social security disabililty claim, and how you can qualify for Medicare coverage. Call us for a free consult at 1-800-776-2929.
