Amidst technical problems with Healthcare.gov, one web site steps up to help individuals and families find affordable health insurance plans
Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Health Care Act, has officially gone live, but due to to technical problems with the web site, many have not yet been able to sign up. Meanwhile, one web site, AffordableHealthInsurance.org, has stepped up to help individuals and families find the affordable health insurance plans that they are looking for.
Frequented by thousands of people every month, the web site does more than just offer health insurance quotes; Users can actually learn about how health insurance works, and what such terms as “deductible” and “HMO” actually mean. The site was designed for users who know little about health insurance, and would like to fully understand what they are signing up for.
The site also features a state-by-state healthcare profile, helping users identify what programs are being offered by the state they live in. For example, if a user lives in California, they can learn about CaliforniaKids, a charitable healthcare organization for children; Medi-Cal for people who are 65 or older, blind, pregnant, or disabled; and California’s Partnership for Prescription Assistance program for people who can’t afford their prescriptions.
The site also features a blog for the general public, and another blog for minorities. Both report on the latest happenings in the health and healthcare industries.
