Confused about Obamacare? Want to know more about your insurance options before open enrollment in October? Don’t even know what “open enrollment” means? The largest online health website in the country, WebMD, wants to help answer your questions.
WedMD on Tuesday announced that it is launching a comprehensive online consumer guide to the health care law dubbed the “Health Care Reform Center.” The interactive page features everything from informational videos about Obamacare’s insurance marketplaces, consumer protections, and enrollment options, to quizzes and FAQs about the law’s provisions, and even personalized calculators that help visitors determine how much help they’ll get from government insurance subsidies.
The online medical resource made its announcement in the same week the federal government launched two sites meant to educate American families and businesses about the Affordable Care Act. Those visiting the new webpages can view training videos and infographics, and sign up for preliminary online accounts that give them information about how the law affects them. Consumers will then be able to use those same accounts to find acceptable health plans and enroll in coverage starting October. http://thinkprogress.org/health/2013/08/06/2421641/online-educational-resources-obamacare/
