A Site Helping Consumers Understand Health Care Reform

This new site was established to help comsumers understand what the reform means for them.  This isn’t a goverment website!

The Health Care and You Coalition is made up of some of our country’s leading organizations that represent consumers, patients, physicians, nurses, hospitals and pharmacists. The goal is to provide the public with easy-to-understand information about the health care law. HealthCareandYou.org is a place where individuals, families, small business owners and health care professionals can turn for help in understanding the specific law and how it impacts them.

A New York Times article by Anahad O’Connor states, One poll released by the Kaiser Family Foundation last week found that about 20 percent of people believe — wrongly — that the law was killed when House Republicans voted to repeal it earlier this year, and 26 percent said they didn’t know enough to say whether it was still the law or not. While a bill to repeal the act was approved by House Republicans in January, it was seen as largely symbolic since a similar measure would be unlikely to clear the Democratic-controlled Senate. President Obama has also said he would veto the bill if it reached his desk.

This is a valuable resource for every American.  Please share with someone you love.
