The YouToons get ready for Obamacare
Transforming Health | 08.09.13
Starting in 2014, major parts of the Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare," go into effect.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will impact quality of healthcare, healthcare costs, and access to affordable insurance for millions of Americans.
The ACA was passed in March of 2010. Yet, two years later, the public still remains deeply divided on the issue. And, 41% of Americans said they are confused by the law. Here's where we stand.
It's a lot to digest, and we're getting closer to the October 1st date when the health insurance exchanges are due to open for individuals to purchase an insurance plan.
2014 is coming--are you ready for Obamacare? Join the YouToons as they walk through the basic changes in the way Americans will get health coverage and what it will cost starting in 2014, when major parts of the ACA, also known as "Obamacare," go into effect.
