Senior Services of Illinois Takes the Confusion out of Obamacare
Date:9/18/2013

Riverwoods, IL (PRWEB) September 18, 2013

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) Open Enrollment starts October 1, 2013, which for over 45 million uninsured Americans is one of the most anticipated dates in the last three years. The question is whether enrollees are ready for the frenzy of Obamacare?

Senior Services of Illinois, Inc. (SSI), an Independent, Authorized Senior General Agent for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois is taking the mystery out of PPACA for Illinois enrollees.

Enrollees will have a few options available once they enter the health insurance marketplace, either government navigators, brokers or a do-it-yourself approach. SSI has an organization of fully licensed and trained education specialists and administration that is certified with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to offer personalized support and guidance in the health insurance marketplace at the start of enrollment.

“Senior Services of Illinois has been preparing for the Affordable Care Act Open Enrollment for the last three years,” states Scott Loochtan, President of Senior Services of Illinois, Inc. “We have put the proper certification and technological processes in place to help enrollees understand and secure options within the health insurance marketplace.”

With October and the Open Enrollment fast approaching, the government has been working diligently in partnership with insurers like Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois to ensure that processes are maintained and information is disseminated in an accurate and succinct way. As part of this process, Senior Services of Illinois, Inc. (SSI) regularly updates its comprehensive website (http://www.SSIinsure.com) with straightforward articles, informative blogs and basic glossaries that remove the clutter that regularly distracts people from what is important to them.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), insurers will be required to offer standardized plans that fall under the four levels of coverage; platinum, gold, silver and bronze, also known as “Metal Plans”. Within the health insurance marketplace exchange, all insurers must offer a silver and gold plan option with all the plans including the same minimum ten essential health benefits. However, each benefit value or coinsurance will differ between each plan with the platinum plans offering the most generous coverage or least amount of individual out-of-pocket exposure and the bronze plans will have the least generous coverage or more out-of-pocket exposure for the enrollee.

“We know that insurance, regulations and legislation can be difficult to comprehend for many people and we place transparency and corporate social responsibility at the core of our business practice,” noted Loochtan. “We advise enrollees to utilize our education specialists in navigating them in the marketplace because we have the experience, resources and education that sets us apart and put the interests of our existing and future clients first.”

Senior Services of Illinois’ experience with the senior market and Medicare has been beneficial in preparing for the Affordable Care Act. Its certified education specialists make themselves available in a variety of ways through technology, over the phone or the old fashioned in person appointment.

“Senior Services of Illinois has always been at the forefront of technology while maintaining the personal human touch of one-on-one relationships,” said Loochtan. “We are ready to assist the thousands of Illinois residents and small business owners in need of securing health insurance. We will continue to be their advisors after the enrollment process offering peace of mind for their future.”
