The implementation of the Affordable Care Act begins this fall with the initial sign-up for health insurance coverage under the new state exchanges. It will be a major change for many people, especially those who have not had coverage in the past. Erik Nelson, associate state director for advocacy with AARP-South Dakota says they have a website set up to help clear up any confusion. He says the site: health law answers.org will begin by asking a series of questions.
Nelson says after you answer the questions on the website, you will find some direction on what type of insurance is available.
Nelson says the Affordable Care Act is a major change, and they wanted to help people find the answers they need.
Sign-up for the state exchanges begins on October first, with the insurance coverage set to begin on January first.
