If you are interested in private health care plans other than the Medicare Advantage Plan, you can visit the state Health Insurance Marketplace for multi-state plans. A multi-state plan was established under Section 1334 of the ACA, which stands for the Affordable Care Act, sometimes called Obamacare.
The federal government agency, Office of Personnel Management administers the Multi-states program. MSP program is a very similar Health Benefits Program issued for the employees of the Federal Government. You can visit healthcare.gov to check MSP options available on the website.
There are many reasons for the establishment of the MSP Program. MSP programs are administered by the OPM to:
- Provide better and affordable care.
- Create a healthier crowd and communities
- Create competition in the marketplace to benefit all the people
Multi-state plans are included in almost every state in the U.S. Unfortunately since it’s still a new health insurance program, there are states in which multi-state plans are still not included.
The reason why the program is called ” Multi-state plan” is associated with its availability in multiple states.
