Upcoming Webinar: Health Insurance Exchanges

Tags: , , , , ,

With the goal of making health care available to more individuals, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) established insurance exchanges or marketplaces, which serve as “one-stop” portals where individuals can access information about available health plans, compare insurance options, and enroll in the coverage that best matches their needs.

Although experience with the exchange population and market is still relatively new, experts forecast that the exchanges will grow considerably over the next several years. Therefore, there is increased imperative to help patients navigate the complicated system of enrolling in a marketplace plan. Picking a plan design that meets a patient’s unique healthcare needs is critical and continues to require an understanding of how plan structure and underlying health conditions affect out-of-pocket (OOP) costs.

The Hydrocephalus Association is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, November 4 at 1:00 PM EST to help educate its members on how to pick the best plan that fits their budget and medical needs.

Tune in to hear tips and advice when selecting your plan. Register today!
