Beginning in October 2013, people without health insurance, who are not eligible for coverage through their employer, Medicaid, or Medicare, can apply for coverage available through state-based exchanges. There are many websites with information to help you navigate this complex issue - a few are listed below.

www.whitehouse.gov/healthreform - general information and a timeline of expected implementation dates for different elements.

www.hhs.gov/healthcare/facts/bystate/nh.html - this site is NH specific.

http://kff.org/health-reform/ - this non-government site includes a health insurance subsidy calculator which estimates what you can expect to pay for health insurance.

www.healthcare.gov - this has a questionnaire that will help you learn if you qualify for lower cost insurance.
