  1.  The Pre-Exisiting conditions are no longer an issue on 1.1.2014.  Signups, brochures & rates will be available 10.1.2013
  2. Agent Webinar Slides
  3.  No, all rates and benefits are the same, as filed with the Department of Insurance  or Managed Care.  We are compensated for our time and expertise by Covered CA or the Insurance Companies.
  4.  I really don’t know.  There are arguments going both ways.  We will know on 10.1.2013.  Here’s the “summary” brochure from Covered CA showing that rates are less.  View the Covered CA page for HHS Report that prices will be lower.   The proof in the pudding will be in a few years, when we have the claims experience and see if Preventative Care and Case Management truly keep the costs down.
  5. See our page on increasing medical costs – (we started this page, way before Health Care Reform – HCR)
