Yesterday’s website launch marked the accomplishment of a major health reform milestone. The website is the first of its kind to act as a national library, placing both public and private health insurance options in a single place.
The site is an ongoing work and states are encouraged to supply comments and program information so that consumers have a full palate of information at their fingertips. HCFANY is collecting comments to incorporate into a memo that will be sent to HHS in the following weeks.
Here are some ideas for improvements we’ve already heard:
- Translation into languages other than English
- More information about women’s health issues and insurance issues
- More detailed information about New York State-specific insurance rules, like extension of COBRA benefits to 36 months
We want to hear from you!
Please visit the website and send us your thoughts on what you like and what can be improved.
