Gainesville Sun, Letters to the Editor
In the midst of our governor explicitly blocking the state Department of Health to provide information and assistance to families and individuals to take full advantage of the Affordable Care Act, it is vitally important to fill the information gap. Providing accurate information to consumers is sorely needed in the absence of any leadership by our elected officials. There is a short time left before the health exchanges become available on Oct. 1. Individuals who do not have employment-related access to health insurance will be able to shop for plans that meet their needs as well as apply for cost supplements. Go to healthcare.gov for more information, and locally to www.wellfl2014.dev.acceleration.net.
