Give Me Your Poor, Your Tired, Your Huddled Masses…………..
“You may qualify for hospital financial assistance if your household income is below 350 percent of the federal poverty limit or if your annual out of pocket medical costs exceeded 10 percent of your household income in the past 12 months.”
350% federal poverty limit for single head of household is approx $45,000. How many health care members insured through their employer’s health plan qualify for hospital financial assistance? Answer: Quite a few we suspect, especially in the Lower Rio Grande Valley in deep South Texas.
ATTENTION RISK MANAGERS: Another method of transferring risk – reposition plan as excess cover for Financial Assistance Programs mandated by the Affordable Care Act. After all, Why Pay For Health Insurance For Those That Don’t Need It?
