Health Insurance and the Affordable Care Act

Health insurance can be confusing and, at times, frustrating but we are here to help.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation can help you learn more about insurance plans and coverage options, out-of-pocket expenses and assistance programs that offer extra support.

You’ll also discover more information about different types of insurance, important considerations when choosing a plan and changes in coverage and insurance options under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

We can’t make the mountain of paperwork go away, but we can help you make sense of it.

If you have specific questions or concerns regarding your health insurance coverage, please visit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Patient Assistance Resource Center, call 1-888-315-4154, or email
