Health care reform toolkit for consumer advocates

Many consumers have questions about health reform and how it will affect them. Educating consumers — particularly those who are uninsured today — will be an important step in getting more people covered in 2014.

Priority Health is committed to assisting community stakeholders educate Michiganders about how they can get health insurance for 2014 and beyond. We've created these free resources which can be used to help consumers understand the changes coming in 2014 as a result of federal health reform.
