Health Insurance and the Affordable Care Act: What 2019 Holds for Freelancers

FREE Webinar, Presented by Gregory Hankins.

Originally aired December, 2018.

A few days after this webinar aired, a judge ruled that the ACA is unconstitutional, since the Tax Cut and Jobs Act repealed the individual mandate. However, health insurance coverage and Medicaid expansion under the ACA are unlikely to be affected in 2019.  The ACA is expected to remain in place while the decision is appealed, a process which could take several months if not over a year. However, uncertainty caused by the decision may cause rates to rise for 2020.

This webinar predates that ruling, but the information presented is valid for 2019.
