St. Martin’s Healthcare Announces Future Expanded Coverage

Published: November 1, 2016

Established in 2005, the St. Martin’s Healthcare Board of Directors will soon be announcing new eligibility guidelines for underinsured residents of DeKalb and Noble counties effective January 1, 2017. These new guidelines will allow access to care for those who are underinsured and find themselves with high deductibles and premiums with minimal health care benefit coverage. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, there has been a huge increase in the underinsured population.

A study by the Commonwealth Fund found that 23 percent of adults younger than 65 who had coverage all year in 2014 were underinsured. The study considered someone underinsured if their out-of-pocket health care costs, excluding premiums, were at least 10 percent of their income or 5 percent if their income was less than 200 percent of poverty (which was $22,980 for an individual in a 2014 plan). People whose health insurance deductibles were at least 5 percent of their income were also included.

"Some people expected that the need for clinics to provide free medical care would wind down as people got coverage under the health law" said Jack Hoadley, research professor at the Georgetown University Health Policy Institute. "But that hasn’t happened." Hoadley coauthored a recent study on the impact of the health law on consumer coverage. Free clinics are "very much needed by people who qualify for insurance subsidies but still can’t afford the copays or deductibles to get care," Hoadley said.
