The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has set up a health care and health insurance website that it recently promised to create.
President Obama said in June that HHS would post information about “unreasonable premium increases” on the website, at http://healthcare.gov
The new site is now up. It provides information about every Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program, and Pre-Existing Condition Plan high-risk health insurance pool in the country, officials say.
The site database also includes data on about 1,000 insurance carriers, 2,030 individual health products that are open to new customers and 3,531 small group products that are open to new customers.
An insurance finder tool can help visitors find programs and products that might suit their needs.
