Sen. Walsh Offers Web Site On the Affordable Care Act

State Sen. Gina Walsh, D-Bellefontaine Neighbors, has launched a website devoted to information on health care reform under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on her official Senate Web page. The site guides citizens through the provisions of the ACA and how those changes in federal law benefit Missourians.

A key part of the ACA involves each state, or the federal government, establishing an insurance marketplace. There, citizens can see a variety of different insurance plans and find one that best fits their budget. Every plan offers comprehensive coverage.

Senator Walsh’s resource website walks citizens through the process of enrolling in the marketplace and finding a plan. She said she hopes the resource page can better inform the public of what exactly the ACA does and how it benefits them.

“There has been so much misinformation spread, and scare tactics used, that a huge majority of the population has no idea how the Affordable Care Act helps them and their families. This law was designed, at its core, to protect average, middle-class Americans from predatory insurance practices and expand health care coverage

Starting on Oct. 1, Missourians will be able to find, compare and enroll in health insurance plans through Enroll Missouri. To visit Sen. Walsh’s Health Care Reform Information Center and learn more about choosing an insurance plan visit: www.senate.mo.gov/walsh/healthcare.
