Under the Affordable Care Act, most Americans must have health insurance or they may face a tax penalty. If you’ve ever shopped for health coverage using the federal exchange, you know it’s a time-consuming, confusing, frustrating process. Nor is it easy to get quick answers.
However, the new law does have its benefits: guaranteed issue, free preventive services, cannot be declined for pre-existing conditions, and the removal of lifetime maximums—giving you unlimited benefits.
The AICPA Steps In
To help its members, the AICPA has selected Aon, the global leader in health benefits, to provide you with access to a private, individual health insurance exchange—Aon Health PLUS. This program is designed to help you find coverage that works for you, while taking the complexity out of enrollment and providing expert assistance.
Aon Health PLUS offers more plan choices than the federal or state exchanges, easy online enrollment and exceptional customer service. With health insurance being required for most Americans, we felt it imperative to offer this solution to our employees. We encourage you to explore the Aon Health PLUS website and use their services.
