Preparing for Health Care Reform

Health Care Reform is here. You need to know how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will affect your practice and your patients. We have information designed just for you—so that you can learn more about the ACA, find answers to your questions and help educate your patients on the importance of health insurance and how to use it.

Keep in mind, if you have patients without health insurance, they will have to wait until the next open enrollment period to buy a plan—unless they have a special circumstance that qualifies them for a "special enrollment period." Your patients can learn more about the ACA, the importance of health insurance, tips on shopping for health insurance, when to shop and how to use their coverage on our Health Care Education Center at BlueCrossNEPAStore.com/learn.
