Obamacare Health Care Insurance Exchanges Open Today
Whether you are a lover or a hater of Obamacare, the Health Care Insurance Marketplaces opened up today. Obamacare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act, is a law that was signed by President Parack Obama on March 23, 2010.
The ACA aims to increase the quality and affordability of Health insurance, lower the uninsured rate by expanding public and private insurance coverage, and reduce the cost of healthcare for individuals and the government.
Few measures of Obamacare have been put into place yet, but the biggest step in getting the ACA up and running went into effect today, the Open Healthcare Insurance Marketplace.
The Open Health Care Insurance Marketplace is the main way in which Obamacare hopes to tackle many of these stated goals.
With it all being so new and people from all walks of life already shouting it will save us all or ruin us all it is really too early to tell how it will change American health care.
However, the first and most important thing we must all do is learn about the ACA, Obamacare, and how it can and will affect us. To this end, they have set up a few websites to help Americans learn about the changes.
The best place to start is here: https://www.healthcare.gov/
Most states also have websites set up to help people learn local issues and to work with some of the specifics on a state by state level. This information can be found here: https://www.healthcare.gov/what-is-the-marketplace-in-my-state/
It is far too early to know if this will truly be a good or bad thing for America but the only way we will know is if we learn and educate ourselves along with these changes. This way we have the best understanding as possible. This is a responsibility each and every one of us voting Americans has and should not be taken lightly. So please take some time and look into Obamacare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act, and learn how the new Health Care Insurance Marketplace will affect you and your family.
Please share your experiences in the comments below so we can get a feel for how people are being affected and using the Open Health Care Insurance Marketplace.
