Does ObamaCare Affect You
With the new health care laws going into effect next year, now is the time to start looking at your options and how the new guidelines may effect you or your loved ones. October 1 is the beginning of open enrollment for the new federal marketplace. Part of the new law makes is possible to get insurance even if you have pre-existing conditions. You should get together information like social security numbers, W2 forms, and policy numbers for any existing health plans so you can apply for coverage on line, if needed. You can also call a help center to talk to trained people to help you navigate the often confusing world of health insurance. Three local call centers have been set up to help in Utah. These are: Utah Health Policy Project, Utah AIDS Foundation, and the National Council of Urban Indian Health. Help can also be found online at www.healthcare.gov.
