Small-business owners and consumers shopping for health insurance have a new tool to learn more about the health care options in their area. The site, www.healthcare.gov, provides information on coverage options, health care providers and important dates for the implementation of the new health care law.
The website identifies available insurance options for small-business owners and, beginning in October 2010, will allow users to compare prices between insurance companies tailored to their individual needs. The site currently provides information on 3,531 small-employer health insurance options and 2,030 individual health insurance plans. In addition, users can compare hospitals, access information on Medicaid and learn more about the new health care law.
