Author : Tracy Mc Manamon   Top Author

The passing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in March 2010 has brought about many changes in America's health insurance system. These changes will come into effect over the next four years and beyond, and will affect the way individuals and businesses buy health insurance. New reform is expected to help more than 100,000 uninsured adults in Ohio get coverage. As the changes slowly come into place, it is important to know how to buy the right Ohio health insurance plan for your family.

Things You Need to Know Before You Buy Ohio Health Insurance

New reform makes it compulsory for all individuals to have health insurance coverage. Things you need to know before you buy an Ohio health plan:
