Low-income individuals and families may qualify for cheaper plans set up government. “Obamacare
Payroll tax imposed on employees and employers enacted by the Federal Insurance Contributions Act and Self Employment Contributions Act of 1954 which set a maximum amount of compensation of which Medicare tax could be imposed each year. Beginning in 1994, maximum limit was removed and a self-employed citizen has to pay the entire 2.9% tax on self-employed net earnings. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, commonly known as Obama Care, is set up to decrease the number of uninsured United States citizens and reduce the cost of health care. Many believe that with the PPAC, it will reduce premiums, prevent bankruptcy, illness, reduce out of pocket expenses, help pay for early retirees and reduce hidden tax on insured United States citizens. It is estimated that the PPAC will reduce the deficit by $100 billion and trillion dollars in the next decade.

The children can even remain on the policy if they are marries, move from home, attend school, are not financially dependent on their parents, or are eligible to enroll in their employer’s plan if they are working (“Health Coverage For Children Under 26”, 2014). While the father’s age may not be a deciding factor for health care coverage plan options, his chronic conditions and life styles choices can definitely play their

The list of the U.S. healthcare subsystems of health insurance are Managed Care, Military, Subsystems for Special Population, Integrated Delivery, Long Term Care Delivery, and Public Health Systems. I would say the majority of my family would be Subsystems for Special Population. B.

According to the Affordable Care Act section 1101, “Immediate access to insurance for people with a preexisting condition. Enacts a temporary insurance program with financial assistance for those who have been uninsured for several months and have a pre-existing condition. Ensures premium rate limits for the newly insured population. Provides up to $5 billion for this program, which terminates when the American Health Benefit Exchanges are operational in 2014. Also establishes a transition to the Exchanges for eligible individuals.” (Healthcare.gov) This ban not only made it impossible for insurance companies to deny people under these circumstances, but also made it so the insurance companies cannot charge someone a higher rate because of a pre-existing condition, even in an emergency.
