HealthCareandYou.org features facts about the law, including a timeline of when provisions take effect, and a state-by-state listing of health coverage options available to consumers now and in the future. The information is tailored to all ages and circumstances, including older Americans, young adults, small-business owners, and healthcare professionals.

The site was developed by the Health Care and You Coalition, which includes the aforementioned groups as well as the AARP, the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, the American Nurses Association, the Catholic Health Association of the United States, and the National Community Pharmacists Association.
