Health Insurance Education Initiative
Because of the new health care law, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), individuals, families and businesses will need to make decisions about their health insurance. As a nonpartisan entity, University of Missouri Extension provides education to ensure that you have the resources and skills you need to make informed health insurance decisions for yourself, your family and your business.
Extension will provide the facts to help you
- Better understand the law and clear up confusion,
- Understand your health insurance options, and
- Make informed health insurance decisions.
MU Extension provides this information to help Missouri residents make informed health insurance decisions by understanding options and responsibilities outlined in the Affordable Care Act.
The Health Insurance Education Initiative launched in October 2013. Through this Initiative, more than 90 extension faculty have received training to deliver local programs about how the Affordable Care Act affects individuals, families and businesses. Since the Initiative's inception, MU Extension has delivered 330 workshops to more than 3,750 Missourians. An additional 780,000 people received information via other events and outreach activities, newspaper articles, television stories, radio spots, podcasts, websites and email efforts.
