After we launched HealthCare.gov – the new one-stop-shop that helps you take control of your health care coverage – President Obama wanted to be sure you know about this great resource. Check out this video he made demonstrating the website and learn how you can benefit from the tools and resources on HealthCare.gov.
The Affordable Care Act makes it possible for millions of families and small business to get affordable, quality care. And HealthCare.gov makes it easy to find out what options are available to you based on your location and circumstances.
The website is a great resource, and it’s only going to get better.
Throughout the site, there are little yellow boxes where you can give feedback and help the website be as informative, clear and complete as possible. And I know for a fact that the HealthCare.gov team at the Department of Health and Human Services meets every week to go over this feedback and has already made some improvements based on it.
More information for businesses and families is coming soon, including pricing data for insurance plans, additional ways to compare quality of health care services and providers, and new consumer protections that are ending the worst abuses of the insurance industry. Be sure to check back often as new materials are added.
As the President said, “no matter what your age or situation, there’s something for everyone at HealthCare.gov.” You can help us spread the work about this great new resource by forwarding this email and video to your friends and family.
Director, White House Office of Health Reform
P.S. – If you are interested, we are creating a special email list that is focused on health care implementation. While HealthCare.gov has a ton of consumer-oriented information, there are often news stories, blog posts, in-depth reports and other implementation-related issues that we want to share from the White House.
