Health Care Reform: Iowa Guides Patients and Physicians

This is a short post with more guidance about enrolling in the new health insurance marketplace (otherwise called the “exchange”). The link Health Care Reform Help Signing Up has some special information for Iowans. The short video above has no audio, but provides a step-by-step walkthrough of how to get started on-line if you have access to a computer. I understand there have been glitches in on-line enrollment because of the overwhelming numbers of people trying to get access. The link just mentioned has phone numbers and links to paper forms for enrollment as well.
