New tools to prepare consumers for Health Insurance Marketplaces

Healthcare.gov homepage
In late June, the Department of Health and Human Services re-launched its health reform websites for consumers,Healthcare.gov and Cuidadodesalud.gov. These were already the official health reform information sites, but now they are focused even more on preparing consumers for the Health Insurance Marketplaces that will open Oct. 1, and on answering the questions that consumers have now. 

There is also a 24-hour toll-free consumer assistance number: 1-800-318-2596 (1-855-889-4325 TTY/TDD). Operators can provide educational information now, and enrollment assistance after October, in more than 150 different languages.
