The Healthcare Marketplace Is Open, Now What? The Vita Companies Can Help

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2013) -  The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has brought sweeping changes to the health insurance industry, affecting employers of all sizes across all industries. October 1st marks the first day that the much-anticipated healthcare marketplace (previously known as the Exchange) opens for enrollment to the public, with the intention of ushering in millions of previously uninsured individuals and families into the healthcare market.

With the marketplaces now open, many are wondering what next? To offer clarity to all the nuances of this 2,700 page piece of legislation, the Vita Companies is creating specialized solutions to help individuals, Small Group Employers (currently defined as those with fewer than 50 employees in California), and Large Group Employers (51+ employees) as they move towards all of the provisions that start January 1, 2014. With brand new plan designs and mandated benefit changes, both companies and individuals will see rates impacted across the board, often upwards.

"We strive to be the best, most personalized employee benefits brokerage firm in the market," said Karl Hansen, CEO and Principal at the Vita Companies. "We understand how confused business owners and Human Resources professionals can be when it comes to healthcare reform, with all of the conflicting news sources and media surrounding it. We're here to help."

To answer all the questions and concerns surrounding the newly opened healthcare marketplace, Vita is offering a free webinar this week on Wednesday, October 2nd, on "The CA Exchanges: A Deep Dive into Covered California's Plans, Rates, and Open Enrollment Process."
