Caregiver Help Radio – Affordable Care Act – What Every Caregiver Needs to Know About Healthcare Reform

Are you confused about the Affordable Care Act? Were you aware that as of January 2014, all Americans will be required to have some type of healthcare insurance? Do you know how much a policy will cost, what it will cover, and whether it will be paid for by you or your employer? Do you know what benefits every insurance company will be required by law to provide to its policy holders? And do you know who to call or where to go to buy a policy? If you don’t know the answers to all of these questions, join us as we talk to Mike Bertrand, Director of Government and Industry Relations with the The iCan Group. We don’t debate the politics or discuss the motives of the 24-hour news channel pundits. We just talk about the changes that have already taken place, the changes that are going to go into effect over the course of the next several months, and what every person needs to know in order to make good decisions about purchasing healthcare coverage. If you’d like specific information about buying healthcare insurance, you can call the iCan Group at 1-800-345-9338 or go to And then we wrap up the show with a Caregiver Self-Assessment test to help you determine if you are suffering from caregiver burnout.

Finally, be sure to visit, our video-based caregiver support program to get help coping the the emotional stress of caregiving. You can sample the entire guilt module, and if you like what you see, you can sign up for a free one-week trial membership. And, as always, if you have a question you’d like to ask, a story you’d like to share, or a rant you’d like to get off your chest, connect with me on Facebook or send me email. I’ll do my best to respond
