ACA experts advise take time, research

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is for uninsured individuals and for those with individual plans who might find a better deal on the marketplace.

Experts advise the public to take their time and start doing their research.  When finding a health insurance plan on the marketplace, there will be several choices from multiple insurance companies.

People will be able to look at the premium costs before tax credits, after tax credits and then they will be able to pull up the summary of benefits for each one of the plans.

Tucson News Now spoke with one of the many uninsured who will benefit from these choices. 

"I would really give it a chance, lots of kids don't have insurance," stated Sara Caro, an uninsured young adult.

Other places like El Rio Community Health Center locations and the Pima County Health Department are offering assistance.

There is a full list of locations on the Tucson News Now website.
