The Health Insurance Marketplace

Two new documents to help people with diabetes make sense of the changing Health Insurance Marketplace are now available from the American Diabetes Association.

One document, Health Insurance Update: Protections for People with Diabetes outlines what existing and new protections exist to help make sure that health insurance is as affordable as possible. The Health Insurance Marketplace and People with Diabetes is a document that talks about options for health insurance and provides tips for comparing how diabetes is treated in different plans.
