With one of the most visible parts of health care reform set to take effect in less than a week, I feel compelled to share with you some of the resources available right here at UnitedHealthcare to help you better understand what all the buzz is about.
When President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) into law on March 23, 2010, we entered a new era of comprehensive health reform. The act includes several provisions designed to improve the health care delivery system.
The new law is changing how people get health care, how they get health insurance, what it costs and who pays for it. Many people are asking:
- How will the new law affect me personally?
- If I need health insurance, how and where do I get it?
- Should I sign up for a different plan, or keep what I've got?
New laws and new health benefits mean more decisions. Our goal at UnitedHealthcare is to help you find answers to your questions and get the health care coverage that best suits your needs. From children to seniors, changes are happening and we are with you every step of the way.
Here are some resources that you may find help simplify the complex task of understanding health care reform.
