Brooklyn Public Library and the Affordable Care Act


Today marks the opening of nationwide health insurance exchanges that serve as a component of President Obama’s health care reform. Among other initiatives, Brooklyn Public Library is maintaining a website on the Affordable Care Act. To assist with providing information and assistance about plan coverage, enrollment and eligibility, New York State has disbursed $27 million in grants to In-Person Assistors and Navigators. One Navigator organization, the Brooklyn Alliance, will provide in-person assistance at several Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) locations this week.
