The Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN) will also be there to give a brief overview of how the new marketplace will work.
Come October 1st, over 800,000 Pennsylvanians will be able to receive a tax credit to shop in a new health insurance marketplace. The marketplace will be open to uninsured people, small business owners (who choose to purchase coverage), and people currently paying more than 9.5% of their income on their health insurance. Also, members of Congress will lose their health insurance and go into the marketplace. Every plan sold must be a qualified health plan, meaning it must network with an adequate number of providers and cover ten essential health benefits, among other conditions.
