Health Insurance Options
Diabetes is primarily a self-managed disease. In order to stay healthy, a person with diabetes needs supplies like test strips, meters and insulin.
Health insurance usually covers the cost of these supplies. In some cases, however, obtaining and keeping health insurance and life insurance can be very difficult.
Affordable Care Act
On March 23, 2010, President Obama signed into the law the Affordable Care Act which puts into place comprehensive health insurance reforms that will guarantee more health care choices, enhance the quality of health care for all Americans, lower health care costs, and hold insurance companies more accountable.
The Act will not be implemented all at once but rather in stages. Portions of the law have already taken effect while other regulations will be implemented through 2014 and beyond.
