Online resources for information on health-care reform

The ink was hardly dry on the health-care overhaul law when foundations, industry groups and consumer advocates began putting together guides to the new rules. Here are some Web sites worth keeping an eye on:

Kff.org: The Kaiser Family Foundation Web site has a lot of thorough information. To get started, under “New & Noteworthy,” click on “summary of the law” for a good synopsis, and on “timeline” to see when various provisions of the law are scheduled to kick in.

Familiesusa.org: Families USA is a nonprofit advocacy organization for health-care consumers. Click on the link to “Health Reform Central” to see just about everything you need to know about the new law. To get a recap of the major changes, click on the link that begins “Help is on the way” on the homepage.

Healthinsuranceproviders.com: Click on “Health Care Reform” to see a timeline that’s less descriptive than Kaiser’s, but easier to grasp visually. The site belongs to an online insurance broker; if you’re looking for health insurance, be sure to shop around other sites and brokers.
