The health care reform, aka Obamacare, aka Affordable Care Act, health insurance “exchanges” launched today.
That means people who are either uninsured, or who are self-employed and buy their own insurance on the individual market, can go online and look for new, hopefully better, health insurance.
Go check it out for yourself.
You can start via this Web site: https://www.healthcare.gov/
And for individual and family insurance, you can start here.
Then see how good, or bad, or affordable, or not, the coverage is and get back to me, either in the comments to this post, or by emailing me at contact at americablog dot com. And make sure to tell me what state you live in, and your age, in addition to some details on what kind of coverage you have now, and what kind you can get with your local exchange.
Considering that the Republicans have shut down the government because they demand that Obamacare be killed – even though Obamacare was part of the President’s re-election agenda, and he got re-elected, while the other guy didn’t – it would be really interesting to hear how the exchanges are actually working.
