The Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, adds new health insurance coverage and financial assistance options for individuals and families. A new IRS flyer, Healthcare Law Online Resources, lists the ACA internet resources available from the IRS, the Departments of Health & Human Services, Labor and the Small Business Administration.
IRS.gov/aca and HealthCare.gov have recently launched ACA web pages.
HealthCare.gov explains how the Health Insurance Marketplace will work, what choices you will have, and how to get ready. Marketplace open enrollment begins October 1, 2013 and runs through March 31, 2014. HealthCare.gov has comprehensive Marketplace information.
The IRS administers the tax law provisions of ACA. IRS.gov/aca explains the tax benefits and responsibilities for individuals, families and employers. It also provides basic information about how health insurance choices you make may affect the tax return you file in 2015.
