What is the Health Insurance Marketplace?

Marketplace health insurance in the US is also referred to as health exchanges or simply the Marketplace. The Marketplace refers to the organizations that are mandated by the United States to provide health insurance to citizens. Individuals can purchase specific health insurance that are in compliant with the corresponding Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). ACA is popularly known as Obamacare.

What is Marketplace Health Insurance Coverage?

It is important to note that the exchanges by themselves are not the insurers themselves. By implication, they therefore not bear the risks involved with health insurance. The main role for marketplace health insurance coverage is to determine what best insurance companies should participate in the exchange. An ideal exchange is mandated to promote the integrity and transparency of the insurance. This, in turn leads to increased enrollment in the various plans thus helping to spread the risk.

It is important to understand that insurance companies must prove reliability and legitimacy in order to be placed on the marketplace exchange, for both federal and state. There is a certain level of a selection process that reviews factors such as: customer satisfaction, BBB (Better Business Bureau), financial solvency, to name a few. For larger insurance companies like Blue Shield or Aetna, the process is far simpler because it is based on reputation and brand longevity alone. However, for smaller companies that work within strict regional or specialized platforms are usually put through a far more stringent process.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA)

There are two divisions – a state level health marketplace, and a federal level health marketplace. 37 states are members of the federal exchange, and 14 are limited to a state exchange. Unfortunately, not all insurance companies are required to provide information about their plans and prices to the Healthcare Marketplace, so be prepared to do some local searching for affordable plans in your area.

The Healthcare Marketplace may also be referred to as the Health Insurance Marketplace. It is a website managed by the federal government. When you visit, you can enter a few personal details about yourself and start shopping for plans in a matter of minutes.
