Carefully Check Policies while Shopping for ACA Insurance

A warning from Pennsylvania’s Insurance Commissioner Jessica Altman about shopping on the ACA’s marketplace this year: Customers need to pay close attention to be sure they know if they are buying a comprehensive policy or not. Non-Comprehensive policies being promoted by the Trump Administration are not required to cover everything stipulated by the ACA.
