Affordable Care Act

Don't listen to the political pundits; educate yourself about the ACA and how it might benefit your family. 
Among the best sources of information about the Affordable Care Act is the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit that specializes in health-policy analysis according to The Wall Street Journal, 1/12/14. “The organization's website offers… an animated video that explains how individuals can obtain health coverage for 2014; a subsidy calculator (plug in your income, family size, age and tobacco usage) that estimates how the ACA might affect you financially; a list of more than 200 common questions about the program, divided into 16 categories; an infographic with three scenarios that illustrate the cost of health insurance under the act for families in different circumstances, before and after premium subsidies; a flowchart that helps explain what types of health coverage people qualify for in 2014; and a quiz that will test your knowledge of the health law.” Go to kff.org and, under "Topics," click on: "Health Reform."
