Health Insurance Marektplace opens Oct 1. Get covered!

Did you know that one out of every five Americans aged 18-64 is living without health insurance? Chances are, it's someone you know -- it may even be you. But the health care system is about to change for the better.

That's why I just signed up to support Get Covered America, a grassroots campaign focused on helping uninsured Americans understand their new health coverage options under the Affordable Care Act.

Sign up to learn how the health care law will affect millions of everyday Americans like you.

Additionally, this is from www.lls.org (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society):

On October 1, 2013, millions of Americans who were previously uninsured will have the opportunity to purchase health insurance coverage effective in 2014 under the new insurance marketplaces established by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This is great news for individuals with pre-existing conditions, such as blood cancer, who could currently be denied coverage based on their health status. These consumers can no longer be denied coverage beginning January 1, 2014. Some changes already implemented under the ACA have benefited patients tremendously, including the ban on lifetime limits on care, the ability of dependents to stay on their parent's insurance up to age 26, and coverage of preventative benefits. - See more at: http://www.lls.org/#/diseaseinformation/getinformationsupport/aca/
