The Affordable Care Act helps to put individuals, families and small business owners in control of their healthcare. It includes strong consumer protections, new coverage options and the tools necessary to make informed choices about your health. But if you’re like many Americans, you still have questions about what the Affordable Care Act means to you. You don’t know exactly what the changes are or the impact they will have on you. Finally, you don’t where to turn to learn more.
Healthcare.gov, a website maintained by The US Department of Health and Human Services, addresses such concerns. It provides an easy-to-understand overview of the Affordable Care Act and includes timelines and other tools to help you get the most out of your existing health plan, find a new plan, or offer the best plan possible to your employees at a price you can afford. The “Healthcare Law and You” section is organized by audience type with helpful brochures, FAQs, videos and other resources specific to almost any situation.
In just a few minutes, you can learn about the Affordable Care Act and how it applies to you, specifically. The information is laid out to provide a quick overview. And for those with a little more time, you can go deep and become even more knowledgeable and comfortable!
