WebMD has introduced the Health Care Reform Center, an online resource for consumers to better understand provisions of the health care reform law and how to enroll for insurance coverage.

According to a survey released on July 31, 22 percent of respondents and 40 percent of adults under age 30 are “almost certain” or “very likely” to purchase insurance via a health insurance exchange.

The new WebMD site contains information on using a state exchange, checking if eligible for Medicaid and what the program offers, understanding tax penalties for not getting health insurance, meeting insurance deadlines and budgeting costs. It also explains basic components of the health reform law as well as facts and myths about the law, and offers a checklist for getting ready to sign up for a health plan.
