The Affordable Care Act - Health Insurance Marketplace opens up on October 1, 2013, are you prepared?

Under Healthcare Reform also known as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), open enrollment for the mandated health insurance component of the ACA starts October 1, 2013. For those who need to prepare to enroll, you can learn about types of health coverage, research your questions, and figure out what you need to know as this process begins.

With that in mind we created the Affordable Care Act - Health Insurance Marketplace page to help.

The first 2014 ABOG Reading List - General with Specialties has been published with all articles available.
