Re-Forming Reform Pt. 2: Implementing the Affordable Care Act in Mass.
Elizabeth Rodman, BCBS Foundation
Good summary of the changes in subsidized coverage scheduled to take effect on Jan. 1, 2014 & other reforms in the private insurance market in Massachusetts. Readers should be aware that many of the changes described have been delayed due to the failure of the new HIX-IES eligibility & enrollment system. For updates on the current status of extensions of Commonwealth Care and temporary Mediciad coverage for applicants for subsidized coverage for whom no eligibility determination can be made, visit https://www.mahealthconnector.org/about/pressroom/connector-updates
