Online Tool Spells Out Impact of Health Care Reform Law
Health Care and You Website Provides Resources FPs Can Give Patients
By News Staff
The site provides tailored information for users. For example, it explains provisions of the Affordable Care Act currently in place and provisions scheduled to take effect in the future. The site also describes nearly every facet of the health care reform measure and provides information on how the law handles medical treatments, disease prevention and coverage for pre-existing conditions. In addition, the site contains a state-by-state listing of health care coverage options available now and in the future and describes the extent of coverage in individual states.
The Health Care and You Coalition, which includes the AAFP, the AMA, the American College of Physicians, the American Nurses Association, the National Community Pharmacists Association and AARP, introduced the website during a March 1 press event. The coalition noted it will continue to work to educate Americans about the health care law through ongoing activities, including state-level outreach and presentations at member events.
