Implementation of the Affordable Care Act

08/14/2013 9:00 AM | Anonymous

The Affordable Care Act makes important investments to increase health care access.
The healthcare law:
• Expands and modernizes community health centers across the country to serve up to 20 million more patients.
• Brings more primary care providers to our neediest school communities by tripling the size of the National Health Service Corps, which offers loan repayment and scholarships for individuals serving in areas that most need health care providers.
• Improves funding for Area Health Education Centers, which serve the primary care needs of rural and other underserved.
You can access information about the Marketplace and HealthCare.gov. When key parts of the health care law take effect, individuals will be able to go to HealthCare.gov to buy insurance from qualified private health plans and check if they are eligible for financial assistance all in one place.

Check out the sites now for tips and things that can be done to prepare for enrollment in October. Starting in October of this year you can enroll.
Individuals can sign-up for emails or text message updates, so they don’t miss a thing when it’s time to enroll.
