Health Literacy Resources- August 25, 2013


With the Health Insurance Marketplace opening in October, several public health organizations are putting together materials that will help people navigate the system. If you haven’t already done so, watch a webinar from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services. They’ll go over what users can expect and the resources that will be available to help in the navigation. Watch it with your students and have them write down questions to ask a navigator. Go over the questions with your students to make sure they feel comfortable asking someone when the time comes.

Here are a few other resources available for your students-

Protect Yourself from Fraud in the Health Insurance Marketplace
English and Spanish

Department of Health and Human Services Launches Health Insurance Marketplace Educational Tools

Guide to Patient and Family Engagement in Hospital Quality and Safety
