The more you know about the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the better off you are. Open enrollment for 2015 ends on February 15th, so there is still time to act.
Do you know what the changes are? The ACA has raised the medicaid limits in some states so that more are eligible. They are also offering subsidies to those whose income is above medicaid limits but are still struggling to get coverage. See just what open enrollment is all about and why it matters to you. You need to use the open enrollment time frame to get the proper healthcare bought and set for your family. The exchanges, or the marketplace, is a website that allows you to compare plans from a variety of providers, just as Travelocity allows you to compare travel costs. You can either use the Healthcare.gov website, or your states individual marketplace website.
UnitedHealthCare.com has put together UHCTV just for you to learn through. They offer a wide variety of videos to help you learn, answer your questions, and help you make the choice that is right for your family.
I have chosen a few of the videos to share with you here.

It's important that you know what the deductibles, co-pays, premiums, and maximum out-of-pockets are as well as what is covered when you are comparing health plans. What do you see the doctor for? What prescriptions do you have? etc. This video on the 5 Myths and Factsabout Health Insurance may help you. What does it all mean?
