US Dept of Health & Human Services held Affordable Care Act training in Utah

In November, the Utah Department of Health (UDOH) Office of Health Disparities Reduction (OHD) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) collaborated to bring Affordable Care Act Patient Navigation Training to Utah.  In this training participants learned about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and what provisions are in place now that patients can take advantage of today.  Participants navigated the new website where consumers can go to read the entire law, find out when key provisions become effective, the latest in funding opportunities and many other provisions encompassed by the ACA.  The website also publishes local and state agencies, public and private companies that have been awarded federal grant dollars through ACA for early retirement provisions, funding to promote healthy communities, among other grant awards.  Visit www.healthcare.gov  to find out more.
