Trump’s new plan for health insurance and how it affects you

Much has been said about the latest in the healthcare sector. Trump Administration plan signed an executive order on health care, to cause momentum to change with the Affordable Care Act. Taking this action increases healthcare choices for millions of Americans. Having alternatives to Obamacare plans will help make things more affordable. How does that impact you?

Here are some key takeaways from the newest version of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), also referred to as Trumpcare.

Pre-existing conditions
Technically, people with pre-existing conditions may not be barred from obtaining insurance coverage under the AHCA. However, their coverage options could be seriously affected by this bill. States would be permitted to apply for waivers to exempt insurance companies from a community rating provision and allow them to charge far higher premiums for people with pre-existing conditions.

The community rating provision is a way of setting premiums and is designed to ensure risk is spread evenly across a larger pool. This means that people are charged the same rate regardless of factors like health status.

Healthcare mandate
The Trumpcare bill does away with the mandate under the ACA that requires people have health insurance or pay a fine. Under the new bill, people who go 60 days without health coverage would be penalized if they rejoin a health plan; they would face a 30 percent penalty on their insurance policy for one year.

Essential health benefits
Under the ACA, specific essential health benefits – including maternal care, prescription coverage, and mental health care -must be a part of any insurance plan. Under the new Trumpcare bill, states could apply for a waiver to exempt insurance plans from including these benefits in their plans.

To qualify, the states would need to prove they could either lower the cost of healthcare for people or increase the number of people covered by insurance. Health experts say that if this provision is enacted, costs for people in need of specific essential health benefits will likely face higher premiums because insurance companies will assume that a person who signs up for a plan with maternal care or prescription benefits will be likely to use those benefits.

Tax credit changes
Under the new bill, qualifications for tax credits to help pay for health insurance would change significantly.

While the ACA offers a scale of credits that take into account family income, cost of insurance and age, the Trumpcare plan would provide flat tax credits per individual, focused on age. The House GOP bill would provide tax credits of $2,000 to $14,000 a year for individuals who don’t get insurance coverage from an employer or the government. The credits would be based on age instead of income and would be capped for higher earners.

People who are older, are lower-income or live in areas with high insurance premiums would likely receive smaller tax credits under the new bill than they do under the ACA. Those who are younger, have higher incomes or live in areas with lower insurance premiums would likely receive more government assistance than they currently do, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Older adults vs. younger adults
Under the ACA, insurance companies may charge an older person no more than three times its premium for a younger person with an identical plan. The new bill would increase the maximum allowable ratio to 5 to 1, which could significantly increase older people’s premiums for comparable plans. States would be able to set different maximum ratios.

Instability in the market makes insurers more likely to raise rates for everyone – so you can probably expect insurance premiums to take a bigger bite out of your paycheck.

Are you ready to donate a car in California? If so, good for you! Donating a car to charity is a wonderful decision on many levels. First of all, your donation goes to help a great cause. Plus, you get your old vehicle or junk car moved off of your property free of charge. You are also recycling an old vehicle, and you also get to claim the car donation as a tax deduction.
In this post you'll find some tips on how to donate a car in California and some specific requirements you should be aware of that relate to California car donations
Donating your car to charity can result in significant tax savings if you include it in your charitable contribution deduction. However, doing a little planning will ensure that you maximize the tax savings of your donation. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires you to calculate your deduction in one of two ways, depending on how the charity uses your donation. Deductions for cars the charity sells are limited to the sales price. In all other cases, you can use the car's fair market value
Just like individuals, small businesses can donate an old car to charity for a tax deduction. Your clunker may even need repairs, but some charities don’t mind a fixer-upper. The hard part about donating a vehicle to charity can be the tax deduction. Internal Revenue Service rules for deducting a vehicle are strict. You should follow them to the letter, or your good deed could turn into a headache down the road.
Where to Donate
Many charities -- some with names known around the world -- use the internet to solicit the donation of your old car to fund their work for children, animals, the arts, medicine and military veterans. Charities include UNICEF, Toys for Tots, the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. If you prefer to keep your donation dollars closer to home, some websites list local and regional charities by state.
Strict IRS Rules
If your car is truely a clunker and barely worth the metal that makes up the frame, you won’t have to jump through so many IRS hoops. On a car valued up to $500, all you need to document your donation is your receipt from the charity and IRS Form 8283. The form should include a description of the vehicle, including the make, model, condition and mileage. If your car is worth more than $500, you must also attach Form 1098-C to your tax return. If your car’s value exceeds $5,000, the IRS requires you to get an appraisal and file it with your tax return.
Determining Your Car's Value
Most charities will sell your vehicle to turn your donation into cash. Your deduction is determined by sales price, not car valuation guides. IRS rules require that the charity provide you with the price it gets within 30 days of the sale. In a few cases, you're allowed to use car valuation guides, but even in these cases, you must use fair market value, not the highest value listed. For example, use fair market value -- not sales price -- when the charity keeps your car for its use, the charity makes repairs to the car before selling it or the charity sells your car at a discount to a low-income person.
The Mechanics of Donation
Most charities will make your donation easy by handling routine paperwork for the Department of Motor Vehicles and any required emissions tests. Some offer free vehicle pickup, whether it's running or not. If you can drive the car to the charity, it saves the organization the cost of pickup or a tow. Always transfer title to the charity. Assignment of ownership can be completed on the back of the title. Sometimes a charity asks you to leave the owner’s name blank so it can fill in the name when it sells the car. Don’t do it, as this leaves you legally responsible for the car.
