A group of Penn State experts have launched a website to provide resources to people who will use the health insurance marketplace created under the federal Affordable Care Act.
The website, http://extension.psu.edu/health/insurance, was developed by Penn State Extension specialists so that people in Pennsylvania can research the policies before they enroll, said Cathy Bowen, a consumer issues professor in the College of Agricultural Sciences.
Bowen said the website provides consolidated information in a “no-frills format.”
The open enrollment period in the health insurance marketplace starts Tuesday and will go through March 31. Coverage will begin as early Jan. 1.
