Capital BlueCross Newly Designed Health Care Reform Web Portal Features New Videos, Interactive Tool
Date:1/6/2011

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Capital BlueCross re-designed its popular health care reform Web portal, launched originally in April 2010 to help people understand the changes the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) would bring to their health insurance coverage. The new design offers easier navigation and access by dividing information into specific categories aimed at employers, members, seniors and for those just interested in the basics.

The new-look portal, found by clicking on "Learn About Health Care Reform" at www.capbluecross.com, also features AskBlue Healthcare Reform, an interactive tool developed by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. Users answer a few simple questions and AskBlue Healthcare Reform provides personalized information about the PPACA changes. At the end of the experience, users can print or e-mail a summary of what they've learned. Business owners looking to understand how PPACA will impact their business and their employees should also utilize AskBlue for simple, straightforward explanations.

Other features on the Web portal include updated Frequently Asked Questions and a number of short, informational interviews with Capital BlueCross employees and industry leaders about various aspects of PPACA. The latest video features Dr. Peter Carmel, American Medical Association president-elect, discussing his organization's perspective on the impact of the new law on our health care system.

Visitors to the Web portal can also find links to the current version of PPACA and to many other helpful resources. If anyone has a question about health care reform that is not answered on the portal, they can e-mail their question to Capital BlueCross using an e-mail address provided on the portal.

The Web portal will continue to be updated so people should check back regularly for the latest on how PPACA is actually
