Now Live: NHC's Calculator to Help Patients Find the Right Health Insurance Plan

Monday, February 3, 2014  
Share |

The National Health Council (NHC) is pleased to announce the launch of two much anticipated tools on PuttingPatientsFirst.net, our new website that provides resources to help people make informed decisions about purchasing health insurance on the marketplace.

The Estimate My Costs tool helps people project how their annual anticipated medical services and drug usage will impact their health care costs across the metal plans offered in their state.

The second tool – Explore My Options – allows people to review a set of six different health scenarios to see how different health conditions, medical and drug use, and metal plans impact out-of-pocket costs.

Combined, these two unique tools will provide people with chronic conditions a more comprehensive picture of their health insurance options.

The NHC will continue to collect patient stories on the Share My Story section of the website to guide our recommendations for improvements to the marketplace. We will also continuously add web-based resources created by NHC member organizations to the Answer My Questions section.

I encourage you to share the PuttingPatientsFirst.net link and these tools with your members and supporters through your publications, your electronic communications tools, and social media channels. To assist you with your communications efforts, please see the attached news release, overview about the tools, and an infographic that explains why understanding your out-of-pocket costs will help you choose the best plan for your specific circumstances.

As always, please send meyour thoughts and suggestions about the website and these two important tools. Your input will greatly assist us to make this an even better resource for the patient community.
