HHS Unveils Insurance-Finder Widget

web20The Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday announced the release of  a new HealthCare.gov web tool that makes searching for coverage options even easier than before.

“HealthCare.gov is a valuable resource for small businesses, consumers and their families to search for coverage options and understand the new benefits under the Affordable Care Act,” HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said. “By putting the power of information at your fingertips, HealthCare.gov is helping American families everywhere to take control over their health care and make the choices that are right for them.”

The Insurance Finder “widget” allows website or blog owners to embed a tool on their site allowing users to begin the process of searching for coverage options. The tool asks users two initial questions: “select a state” and “which best describes you.” After clicking on “next steps,” users are taken to a page on HealthCare.gov that continues with the insurance-finder process based on answers to their specific questions.
