Affordable Care Act

This information guide contains information pertaining to the Affordable Care Act.

The Affordable Care Act includes a number of options in healthcare coverage. There are a wide variety of resources available online that provide information about these options, and how to choose what is best for you.

The library cannot provide recommendations on care choices for individuals but we hope to make available the necessary information for our library users to make informed decisions that best suit their needs.
