Author: Helen Whelan

Open enrollment for Affordable Care Act insurance, known as Obamacare, starts November 1st and ends December 15th.   While there's been so much confusion because of efforts by Republicans and President Trump to dismantle this healthcare, we thought we'd provide facts so that you or folks you know have the resources to buy inexpensive insurance next year. Inline image 1 Remember, if you don't buy this insurance, you'll pay $695 in tax penalties.  You might as well use that money to buy insurance for yourself and/or your family. In fact, you might wind up getting health insurance for free!  In New York, most people can find a plan for as little as $50 a month or even free. Eight out of 10 people who buy insurance through the New York State of Health site get substantial financial help to pay their insurance.

She was highly anxious and it was very hard to know what she wanted or needed. Health care aides were on hand to help with her every need: moving her so she didn't get bed sores, helping her eat, dressing her, cleaning her.  But, in all of this, we really didn't know what she needed.
