HHS website helps companies insure gay employees
from the Washington Blade

The Department of Health & Human Services has expanded its website on health insurance companies to include a filter allowing small business owners to locate plans allowing for same-sex partner coverage.

The website, healthcare.gov, was established as a result of the health care reform law that President Obama signed into law in 2009. The website provides details about the Affordable Care Act and offers a searchable database enabling individuals and businesses to find health insurance plans.

In addition to providing a filter enabling small businesses to find plans covering same-sex partners, the expansion of the website activated on Friday lets businesses find product choices for a given zip code, sort them by out-of-pocket limits, and find plans with mental health and maternity coverage.

Secretary of Health & Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said the change fosters a more transparent and competitive marketplace in addition to allowing businesses to find plans in an unbiased manner.

2. Good move, good improvement. Not only does it support equal access it improves info access.
So much of the health care system at that level remains antiquated in technology terms. :thumbsup:
