IPA Family President and Chief Operating Officer David Keeler commented, “With the passing and implementation of ‘Obamacare,’ a.k.a. the Affordable Care Act (ACA), adding the SureBridge programs in conjunction with the supplemental insurance products we already provide through our internal IHC insurance carriers positions us to better serve the current and future needs of our ACA customers.”

IPA Family is proud that it is able to offer ACA compliant plans through some of the largest and most reputable insurers in the country. The SureBridge partnership will add vision insurance, critical accident, quick issue life insurance, non-insurance wellness products, and other solutions to the IPA Family product portfolio. Additionally, IPA Family represents three health insurance carriers through The IHC Group, which provide coverage for short term medical, critical illness, dental, fixed indemnity plans and its new Metal Gap supplemental series.

Keeler also added, “This special relationship allows us to collaborate with highly reputable industry leaders and, even more importantly, it provides us with the ability to equip our current sales advisors with enhanced solutions to market in states where we currently have no presence at all. As a result, we have immediate opportunities for high-level leaders who are willing to connect, invest and grow along with us.”

All sales advisors for IPA Family are licensed insurance producers. For more information about leadership opportunities with the organization, contact Dave Keeler to schedule an interview.

*Supplemental insurance products are not considered minimum essential coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

Does anyone in my family have to apply for Obamacare?

Question by Daryle: Does anyone in my family have to apply for Obamacare?
[Yes, I know that “Obamacare” isn’t a Health Insurance Program, but a mandate to find your own. But no one is going to search for that.]

I’ve heard that there’s a tax that is un-waived if you don’t comply with Obamacare, so I’m wondering who isn’t covered in my family so we can make the deadline if needed.

* Me: in state-run health program. Got notice that my (and everyone else’s) annual review will be delayed by 3 months since the state plans will mesh with Obamacare. So I figure I’m covered for next year, but what about now?
* Brother #1: works as janitor in a casino. I guess his employer health insurance means he’s covered.
* Sister: works as medic in the U.S. Army. I guess she’s already covered by a military health insurance.
* Brother #2: had job only in the first half of this year; been collecting unemployment insurance on and off ever since. He’s the one that I’m worried about.
* Mother: retired for decades; elderly and been doing the annual Medicare sign-up for many years. I guess she’s already covered.

Who, if anyone, needs to take further action to avoid any Obamacare penalty?

Best answer:

Answer by H
If you don’t buy health insurance from the healthcare.gov website, your state health insurance website or froman individual insurance company and you don’t have Medicaid or Medicare, you have to pay a fine.

Don’t “figure” you are covered. You need to call them and ask.

If your brother has insurance through his employer, then he has insurance and is obviously covered.

If your sister gets insurance through the military, then obviously she is covered.

Your brother will know whether he has health insurance or not. It’s not hard to figure out. Either you pay the bill every month and have a card….or you don’t.

Your mother has Medicare which is health insurance. She is obviously covered.

This isn’t complicated. If you don’t have health insurance (and you will know if you don’t have it because you have to pay completely out of pocket every time you see a doctor or go to the ER), you will be penalized. The price depends on income. See the healthcare.gov or your state health insurance commissioner website for more details.
