Health Insurance meeting the lowest “essential benefits” requirement. is mandated for just about everyone starting 1.1.2014. The penalty for non compliance is 1% of income (this year) and of course possible bankruptcy (the penalty does not get you any coverage) if G-d forbid you become ill or get into a major accident. Please note that the 10 Essential Benefits mandated by Health Care Reform leave out many important protections like, Life, Disability, Adult Dental or Long Term Care.
The rates and benefits are the same in and out of Covered CA, as Health Care Reform doesn’t want adverse selection. However, there are more plans and companies outside of Covered CA.
