I wanted to take a minute to remind everyone that the affordable health care act goes into effect today (as if you haven’t seen it blaring on every channel).
I am definitely excited at the prospect of so many Americans with mental illness being able to receive treatment they wouldn’t otherwise have access to or be able to afford.
You can definitely expect to hear more from my end on different aspects of how the new healthcare system can work for you, but in the meantime I wanted to let out a little hooray and direct you to healthcare.gov where many of your initial questions can be answered.
Don’t stress! Though the act goes into effect today, enrollment on your end doesn’t need to happen until March 31, 2014 so you still have plenty of time to learn more before deciding what plan you want and what action you’d like to take.
