Need Information about The Affordable Care Act?

Beginning in October 2013, people without health insurance, who are not eligible for coverage through their employer, Medicaid, or Medicare, can apply for coverage available through state-based exchanges. There are many websites with information to help you navigate this complex issue - a few are listed below.

www.whitehouse.gov/healthreform - general information and a timeline of expected implementation dates for different elements.

www.hhs.gov/healthcare/facts/bystate/nh.html - this site is NH specific.

http://kff.org/health-reform/ - this non-government site includes a health insurance subsidy calculator which estimates what you can expect to pay for health insurance.

www.healthcare.gov - this has a questionnaire that will help you learn if you qualify for lower cost insurance.

http://nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/healthinsurance.html - Scroll down to Specific Conditions for information about the Affordable Care Act.

The library has four public access computers. Staff can provide basic instructions on how to search for information and how to find specific websites.
