Medigap And the Affordable Health Care Act Aka Obamacare Part 4

Someone asked me about supplemental insurance and the Affordable Health Care Act. Well, I did a little research. It appears that there is something called Medigap which you can get to supplement your Medicare. Yes, there will be some impact on that program. So listed below are several articles that address the issue.

Affordable Health Care Act Information and Insights For Baby Boomers Part 2-How Do You Access Information For Your State?

So How do you get more information about the Affordable Health Care Plan for your State?

You can access the marketplace where health insurance  will be sold, are going to be accessible through Health Care .gov  and if you have issues with the technology you can do the instant chat feature which I found to be very helpful. There is also a  toll-free number which is 1-800-318-2596 or  TTY: 1-855-889-4325 . People without other forms of health insurance can sign up for subsidies through the marketplace [if they qualify] to help pay for coverage. You can go directly to this page to access , via your State, information about your marketplace.

Affordable Health Care Act Information and Insights For Baby Boomers Part 1

How much do you already know about the Affordable Health Care Act? Are people already asking you about information in your family because they know that you will KNOW? Aren’t we Baby Boomers always supposed to be the “go to folks”?

Well, I decided to finally start gathering information because I needed to KNOW MORE. The one thing that I am realizing is that a lot depends on your residence. Some States have their own marketplace-very interesting.

However, allow me to share an informative webinar with you that should help you start forming your own questions. The webinar was designed for Journalists who will be forming articles for the public to help our learning curve. Shhh, don’t tell any Journalists already you saw this webinar.  You know how we Baby Boomers love to learn. LOL

Pay close attention to information essential for those of us who are in the Baby Boomer age range but still working and not quite old enough for Medicare. Also, many are working but will lose benefits.

Please feel free to share your insights and resources. Also, if you have additional information or currently blogging about the topic I would love to have you as a guest blogger. But note, that I don’t desire to entertain a lot of negative rants about the subject just how we can maximize the information to meet our health care needs.

I will be sharing more later so be sure to include your email on the blog so you can get updates as I post them.
