The Affordable Care Act includes sweeping changes and a number of options in healthcare coverage. Open enrollment for the Healthcare Marketplace begins October 1. Coverage begins January 1. Open enrollment closes March 31.
There are a wide variety of resources available online that provide information about these options, and how to choose what is best for you. The staff of the Albany County Public Library will be happy to help you look for those resources. One resource we recommend is a "one-stop shopping" site.
Making the best healthcare choices requires an understanding of each person’s or family’s unique health and financial circumstances. While our staff are not trained or licensed to provide advice or to assist you in selecting a specific health plan, we can provide information and direction to public resources about the Affordable Care Act that will help you make your own choices.
