TMCNet: Launches New Article Resources on Health Insurance and Affordable Care Act

[February 26, 2013] Launches New Article Resources on Health Insurance and Affordable Care Act

Minneapolis, Minn., Feb 26, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- The historic 2010 passage of health care reform set a new stage for how health care and health insurance is delivered and administered in the United States.

Commonly referred to as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the bill has already taken effect for certain provisions. Health insurance was extended to adult children until the age of 26 on their parent's medical insurance plans; preventive care was made available without additional cost to the patient; and seniors who reach the Medicare gap in prescription coverage are now receiving rebate checks.

In an effort to help health insurance customers understand specifics of the Affordable Care Act, has created a resource section to explain timelines, provide details on what is covered for dependents, outline stipulations for ACA-required essential health benefits, and provide external resource links.

Many other topics on the Affordable Care Act can also be found on the blog, including what the ACA provisions mean for younger adults, birth control and contraception requirements and what to expect from the Affordable Care Act in 2013.
