Major Health Insurance Reforms Coming Soon – Patient Materials Available
September - 10 - 2013
This fall, the Affordable Care Act will bring exciting changes for people with diabetes. In order for these changes to benefit as many people with diabetes as possible, it’s important to get the word out. The American Diabetes Association has created fact sheets—in English and Spanish—to explain these coming changes. You can help to spread the word by sharing these fact sheets with your patients. As we ring in the New Year on January 1, 2014, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, we’ll also celebrate new health insurance coverage rules that end diabetes-based discrimination in health insurance!
On October 1, 2013, Health Insurance Marketplaces were made available in every state, bringing a new way for individuals and families to shop for health insurance.
