Website Launched to Help Answer Your Health Care Reform Questions – June, 2010

We know that our members, customers, and providers will all be impacted by health care reform. To help answer questions around the new legislation, we have launched a website dedicated to helping the public understand the many parts of health care reform. The site, www.healthychat.com, encourages open forum discussion and is designed to answer specific questions about all health care related topics. If you have questions about how health care reform will impact you or your patients, please visit www.healthychat.com to submit your questions. Additionally, if you have patients that have unanswered questions about health care reform, please encourage them to visit www.healthychat.com and join the discussion. Healthychat.com is monitored daily during business hours and responses to questions are posted within 24 hours.
