ACA Resource: From Coverage to Care Resources

Dana Halvorson 

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has developed From Coverage to Care Resources to help newly enrolled individuals better understand how to use their insurance most effectively.

A Roadmap to Better Care and a Healthier You (also available in Spanish) walks individuals through a step-by-step guide on what having health insurance means, how to use an insurance card, and how to set up a first visit with a health care provider such as a doctor or a nurse practitioner.

It also provides information on what to expect during that first visit, what to look for in a provider that meets their needs, and how to keep up regular health care visits. This guide includes a glossary to help explain insurance terms. There’s also a checklist at the end of the Roadmap that helps individuals track their health screens and visits.

Your Roadmap to Health posters are available in both English and Spanish.

If you have any questions relating to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), please submit them to insurancecoverage@ahca.org, and be sure to check out AHCA/NCAL's ACA website.
