An important new website, healthcare.gov, is a one-stop site that will answer your questions about health care reform, and give you access to a range of new and existing insurance options.

Healthcare.gov works for health coverage the same way that Orbitz and Travelocity work for buying airline tickets. After answering a few questions about your location and insurance situation, you will be provided with a menu of insurance products in your area, and the benefits they provide. It will give you information about the new Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan available in California. The site spells out your rights as a consumer, and gives important information about new consumer protections enacted in health reform. The site protects your personal information, and will not require your name, address, or income.

Finally, Healthcare.gov also explains the new health reform law in plain language. There is a timeline of when each provision of the Affordable Care Act will be enacted, and what each provision means.
