The Healthcare.gov website has a wealth of reliable information about health care coverage. The Health Insurance marketplaces begin open enrollment on October 1, 2013, so it is essential that we educate ourselves before then.

Some common questions that are answered on the site include:

  • What is a Health Insurance marketplace?
  • What if I have job-based insurance?
  • What do small businesses need to know?
  • How does the health care law protect me?
  • What if I'm self-employed?
  • What if someone doesn't have coverage?
All of these questions, plus many more, are answered on the Healthcare.gov website. The website is broken down into information for individuals and families as well as information for small businesses.

The best thing anyone can do right now is become informed and learn as much as they can about the Affordable Care Act. The video (from the Healthcare.gov website) below is less than two minutes and gives more information about the Health Insurance Marketplaces.
