Staying healthy is important whether it is your physical or mental health. At NC State we have access to a variety of resources.
Affordable Care Act
There is important information regarding how the Affordable Care Act (affectionately called Obamacare) benefits the GLBT community. For people who are already insured, not much will change. A good change if you’re already insured is that you can get basic preventive care like breast cancer and STI screenings with no co-pay. If you don’t currently have insurance, during open enrollment — which starts October 1, 2013 and runs through March 31, 2014 – it will be easier to get affordable health insurance. You can also visit www.healthcare.gov for more information.
The National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce (NGLTF) has worked diligently to put together information to use as a resource if you have any questions - The Taskforce ACA Information Packet.
