Marketplace Health Insurance
Coverage – What’s the Law?
The Affordable Care Act requires everyone legally living in the U.S. to have health insurance or pay a penalty. You can shop for plans by phone, through a broker, at on-site enrollment locations, or at the online Health Insurance Marketplace. Learn more at: www.healthcare.gov
Providing Access through Health Alliance
Broadlawns is a member of the University of Iowa Health Alliance made up of more than 50 hospitals and more than 160 physician clinics. That means you have access to a network of providers all across Iowa, eastern Nebraska and the Quad Cities (Illinois).
As a member, our patients can be included in health care coverage offered on the Iowa Health Insurance Exchange.
When you shop the Marketplace, look for insurance plans that include Broadlawns Medical Center so you can use the full scope of this Health Alliance.
If you are enrolling in the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan, choose a primary care doctor at Broadlawns.
If you are enrolling in a commercial insurance, please confirm Broadlawns Medical Center is in-network.
With coverage through the Marketplace, you cannot be denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions and preventive care is included at no additional cost. Coverage includes:
Essential Health Benefits
Essential Health Benefits include at least the following:
Ambulatory patient services (outpatient care you receive without being admitted to the hospital)
Maternity and newborn care (care before and after your baby is born)
Mental health and substance use disorder services – this includes counseling and psychotherapy
Rehabilitative and habilitative services and devices – to help people with injuries, disabilities, or chronic conditions gain or recover mental and physical skills
Preventive and wellness services and chronic disease management
This list represents the minimum requirements for all plans in the Marketplace. Plans may offer additional coverage. Doing a side-by-side comparison is a good way to use the Marketplace for finding the coverage that best fits your needs.
