Facebook.com/healthcare.gov and Long Term Care

The Health and Human Service Department has announced the launch of HealthCare.gov on Facebook.

If you visit healthcare.gov, you will find several tools that can help consumers make educated choices about their medical care.

One of the tools is titled “Nursing Home Compare”.     It provides a list of U.S. nursing homes which includes demographics (location and type of facility) and nursing home ratings, which include health inspection reports, staffing data and quality measures.

Another tool is called “Home Health Compare”.   The Home Health Compare tool can help you compare the quality of care that home healthcare agencies provides.

If someone you know needs help with long term care,  this information may be very useful.

This is also a go to site if you want to find more facts about ObamaCare.
