Review Health Care Reform Changes for 2014 ~ Watch the YouToons!

Review Health Care Reform Changes for 2014 ~ Watch the YouToons!

Many of health care reform’s major provisions become effective January 1, 2014 and enrollment in the health care marketplace for the non-Medicare population starts as early as this October. Are you ready? The Kaiser Family Foundation put together a helpful 6-minute video that walks through the basic changes in the ways Americans will get health coverage in 2014 and some of the predicted costs.

People with Medicare will not see much change, as they will continue to receive their health care through the Medicare program. They will, however, continue to enjoy expanded preventive health benefits and lower costs for their prescription drugs as the donut hole gap continues to shrink.

Here is also a Spanish version of the YouToons video.
