The Western States Genetic Services Collaborative
(WSGSC) provides an abundant amount of information about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in an easy to use interactive “Through the Life Course
” website. WSGSC begins by giving an overview of the information available depending on personal needs and/or questions. The map provides an overview of the new law by explaining what health insurance exchanges are, health benefits, and different terms and resources referenced throughout the ACA. In addition, the map provides different topical areas on how the law will affect an individual depending on life stages. Examining each section, users are able to fully understand how the Affordable Care Act changes the current health care structure and how the new law may impact the user individually. This website also addresses family members who have a child with a genetic condition. By aggregating information regarding the ACA into relevant categories, the Through the Life Course website makes it easy for users to find information relevant to their life circumstances.
