The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will be repealed, but a number of things remain the same for many Americans: you will have to purchase insurance in a state-run exchange and pay a tax.
That means that even if you live in a small town, your local insurance provider won’t be offering you a plan in your area.
That’s a huge change from last year when many insurers offered plans in most of the country, including places like the Great Lakes, Northeast, and West Coast.
Here’s how this will affect you.
You won’t need to pay a premium to stay on your current plan.
The ACA requires insurance companies to provide coverage to everyone regardless of pre-existing conditions.
It’s a great way to help reduce costs and stabilize a healthcare system where insurers and doctors can charge you for services you might need.
However, as a lot of people with pre-existing conditions will have no coverage or they won’t have access to insurance, many will find that their premiums have skyrocketed.
For those of us who already have coverage, that means we’ll be stuck paying more for insurance than we would if we had purchased insurance in the individual marketplaces.
This is a big problem because a lot more people will be uninsured in 2020 than would have been otherwise.
As a result, insurers have made the switch from selling plans in individual market to selling plans on the ACA’s marketplaces to get their costs under control.
If you don’t like this change, you can keep your existing plan and you won’t lose coverage.
However if you do like it, there are ways to lower your premium.
Some plans will drop out of the ACA marketplaces and you will still have to pay your premiums.
These include Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, UnitedHealthcare, Anthem, and others.
You’ll also still have a choice between a silver plan and a gold plan, though the premium is much lower.
If this sounds like you, there’s an easy way to find out what plan you qualify for.

You will need to wait until 2020 to buy a plan.
This will affect most people who currently buy plans in the ACA exchange.
This means you will pay a penalty for staying on a plan that’s already sold out or being unable to get coverage because of pre in-exchange enrollment restrictions.
That will be much lower than what it would have cost to stay in the single market.
However you’ll still have one year to decide whether to continue on with your current plans, which will affect your overall costs for next year.
You may also need to look into how much coverage you need.
The Affordable Health Care Act requires that you buy insurance that covers you and your family, which means if you’re older and your insurer doesn’t cover you, you may need to purchase additional coverage.
If so, that’s not a bad option.
However it may be more expensive than you expect.
You can’t shop for insurance online.
You must go to a licensed insurer to shop for coverage.
This includes health plans and small businesses.
The insurance marketplaces will still offer the most affordable coverage options, but you won, at least for now, be forced to shop at the health care providers that are licensed in your state.
If your current insurance company isn’t licensed in the state, you’ll need to buy another one.
As of November 2018, only the state-licensed companies that cover the health insurance market can sell insurance.
The remaining insurers that don’t are still selling coverage, but they won, for now at least, only in the states that have the state’s insurance commissioner, a state agency.
This could change over time.
It will also likely affect small business owners who have been forced to sell coverage in the marketplaces, as they are subject to a fee.
You might have to wait longer to enroll in coverage.
While many of the changes announced in 2019 are expected to make life easier for Americans who buy coverage through the market, there will be some small changes.
First, you won the right to opt out of having your plans canceled if you can’t pay your premium or find another insurer that will.
This right comes with a catch, however.
In 2018, you had to opt-out of having coverage cancelled if you had preexisting conditions and you had more than $2,000 in medical expenses.
As such, you will now be able to opt back into the marketplace if you have preexistent conditions or more than that amount of medical expenses, or if you’ve lost your job.
For many people, this means they’ll have to start over.
In other words, you might be able do what you did in 2019, but it might be a little more difficult.
