Health Insurance Guidance
CBF Church Benefits is committed to helping you and your church navigate the Health Insurance Marketplace. CBF Church Benefits has gathered various sources of educational material, videos and links that will help you through the process.
The Health Insurance Marketplace is a new way for individuals and small employers to find affordable coverage. You will be able to compare plans all in one place based on coverage, quality, and price. The Marketplace will determine if you qualify for lower cost and assistance with your out of pocket expenses. You can also find out if you are eligible for Medicaid or CHIP (Children Health Insurance Program). The Marketplace offers health insurance plans through private companies and no provider can turn you down or charge you a different price because of an illness or preexisting condition.
To start the process please click on one of the right-side banners, these links will automatically direct you to the Health Insurance Marketplace based on your interest. Also included is the CBB Healthcare Reform Workshop presented at CBF 2013 General Assembly. In this workshop, Gary Skeen discussed the Affordable Care Act and how it will impact you and your church.
Additionally, we are creating blogs, presentations and articles that will keep you informed of the latest updates. If you have any questions or would like to be added to our subscriber list on HealthCare Updates, please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope that this information will assist in your decision making process and provide you with a deeper understanding of the law.
