As the nation gears up for major changes under health care reform, AARP launched two websites to educate consumers about the Affordable Care Act.
HealthLawAnswers.org provides customized information based on a user's address, gender, household size, income and health insurance status. The online tool generates a report about what benefits may be available and where to find additional information. The Spanish-language version is MiLeyDeSalud.org.
AARP's other new website, HealthLawFacts.org gives consumers access to resources and details about specific aspects of the health care reform law.
"We know there is a lot of information out there about the health care law and AARP is here to help people cut through the clutter," Nicole Duritz, vice president of AARP Health Education and Outreach, said in a press statement.
AARP is also working on community outreach efforts with other organizations, such as the Hispanic Federation, National Council of La Raza, Esperanza and the League of United Latin American Citizens. State AARP offices are providing information to consumers about local resources.
