The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, often referred to as “Obamacare,” begins in just 48 hours.
However, the whole concept of this new health care program is still confusing for a lot of people.
For a lot of people, the Affordable Care Act is political. To others, it's a godsend.
But, more than anything, it's tough for most people to understand.
A few things you should know:
- If you are covered by your job, you will not need to take action, but it might be worth checking into to see if you can get health insurance cheaper.
The site to go to for detailed information or just about any question you might have is www.healthcare.gov.
Open enrollment starts Oct. 1.
Going to the website will not only put it all in layman’s terms, but you can also enroll on the site.
