Let’s Talk…Affordable Care Act
Perhaps you are fortunate enough to have health care coverage through your employer or spouse’s employment. We also know that many child care providers either fund their own health insurance or fall into the same category as over 41 million Americans of being uninsured. So, what are your upcoming options under the Affordable Care Act? The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has created a page specific to child care providers titled The Affordable Care Act: What It Means for Children, Families, and Early Childhood Programs.
Open enrollment begins October 1 on the Marketplace, and coverage could begin as soon as January 1, 2014. Visit the site to learn more about your upcoming health care options as either an early childhood professional or employer.
