The Affordable Health Care Act and the Insurance Marketplace

The Affordable Care Act becomes a reality on October 1st, 2013 with the opening of the Insurance Marketplace. This Marketplace allows those needing health insurance or wanting to investigate options the ability to compare plans based on their needs and budget.

As with all new programs, there is a steep learning curve that must be overcome. This webpage is intended to help connect you with the information you need to learn about these new programs and tools.

As always, your feedback is appreciated as well as any additional resources you may be aware of. Just send us a message via our contact form.

Thank you,
