Obamacare Info

healthcare.gov - the official U.S. government website.  If you don't have health insurance through work, go here to find out about state marketplaces, subsidies, expanded Medicaid coverage, etc. The marketplaces open on October 1, for coverage that starts in January 2014.

A Guide to the New Exchanges - Q&A from the NY Times. A good place to start on the basics.

HealthLawHelper - A free site from Consumer Reports. "The new health law (aka the Affordable Care Act) is the biggest change in the American health care system in more than a generation. We’ve created the Health Law Helper to give consumers accurate and unbiased information about this complex new law and how it affects them."

Enroll America - "...a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to maximize the number of uninsured Americans who enroll in health coverage made available by the Affordable Care Act." Lots of helpful information. Here's their Virginia site.

Enroll Virginia - "ENROLL Virginia! is a nonpartisan, community-based effort to educate all Virginians about the new health insurance marketplace and provide free, unbiased assistance with the new application and enrollment process." The website's scheduled to go live on October 1.
