Your health insurance dictates more than which doctor you see. It also dictates which hospital cares for you. That includes medical needs like baby delivery, cancer care, heart care and joint replacement. In fact, your hospital provides most of the major medical care you receive throughout your life. So if your employer gives you a choice of health plans, choose one that gives you Northern Utah’s top hospital: Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital Center. That way you can rest at ease knowing your family will be well taken care of.
Healthcare Reform - Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)
One major part of the Affordable Care Act took effect on October 1, 2013: Open enrollment began in new online health insurance “marketplaces” (formerly called “exchanges”), which are designed to help consumers compare the costs and benefits of different insurance plans and learn if they’re eligible for public programs and government subsidies. Coverage could start as early as January 1 — and open enrollment ends on March 31.
In Utah, separate marketplaces will be available, one (operated by the federal government) for the individuals seeking insurance and one (operated by the state of Utah and called Avenue H) for small employers seeking insurance. Both are scheduled to open this fall.
