What’s Covered in Available Plans?

Standard Coverage for Essential Health Care

You may have heard that the health care law requires most Americans to have health insurance. Open enrollment closed on March 31. But if you’ve had a major life event — such as a marriage, a new child, a move to a new area or you lost coverage through your job — you could still qualify for affordable coverage.

Another important part of the law is a requirement for most health insurance plans to cover essential health care – care and services considered essential for health.

Is There a Cost for Essential Health Care?

Depending on your health insurance plan, you'll pay a portion of the cost if you receive these types of care and services, but you won’t have to worry anymore about whether essential health care is covered.

What's Standard Essential Health Care Coverage?

Starting January 1, 2014, most health insurance plans will cover certain specific care and services when you use an in-network provider:

  • Doctor's office visits and other care received without being admitted to the hospital
  • Emergency services and care
  • Hospital stays and care
  • Health care for women during pregnancy and newborns (maternity care)
  • Care and services for children, including dental and vision care
  • Prescription medicines
  • Lab tests and services
  • Preventive and wellness care, including screenings and shots
  • Treatment for behavioral and mental health conditions
  • Care and services, including certain devices, to help recover from an injury or illness (rehabilitative services)
  • Care and services, including certain devices, that help someone keep, learn or develop skills they need for daily living (habilitative services)

If you’ve had a major life event — such as a marriage, a new child, a move to a new area or you lost coverage through your job — you could still qualify for affordable coverage. Find out if you qualify.
