Two years ago, the Health Insurance Marketplaces, a key provision of the Affordable Care Act, opened for the first time. Since then, an estimated 10.2 million Americans have enrolled for healthcare coverage through the online marketplace, which allows people to browse coverage options, compare plans and purchase health insurance that meets their individual needs. Overall, under the Affordable Care Act, 17.6 million more individuals in the U.S., some of whom are right here in Scott County, now have improved access to medical care in the form of preventive health screenings, vaccinations, wellness checks and women’s care, among other services. While this is great news, there are still an estimated 10.5 million Americans who do not have healthcare coverage. Throughout 2015, many of these men and women, some of which could be our neighbors, family or friends, will forego the preventive health services that can detect and prevent long-term health problems. Many of them also will be subject to increased federal penalties in the upcoming tax season for lack of healthcare coverage. Those without insurance in 2016 could face penalties as high as $695 per person or 2.5% of their taxable income.
