As you may be aware, public libraries are supposed to be a key place for information about Health Care, including how to comply with requirements of the Affordable Health Care Act. Our librarians will be happy to help you negotiate the process of finding a health plan, although we can’t advise you about which one would be best for you.
Finding out about the Affordable Care Act can be confusing. At the library we can help you:
- Get assistance finding unbiased, relevant, reliable information on insurance and health topics
- Use technology (computers, Internet, printing) to find information and complete applications on your own
- Find enrolling agencies who can help you sign up for a plan.
There’s much more to affordable health care than just the Affordable Health Care Act. and affordable health care really involves so much more than finding the right insurance plan.
