- Kaiser Family Foundation:
The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation is a non-profit, private foundation that provides independent research and leadership in health policy analysis. This is a "go-to" site for authoritative data that is independent from commercial or governmental healthcare organizations.
- The Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured:
Numerous authoritative resources are available, including policy briefs on the Affordable Care Act and annually updated Fact Sheets.
The official U.S. government site for Medicare, the site provides basic information on plan components and supplemental options.
Official U.S. government communications are provided on this site regarding Medicaid, CHIP, and the Affordable Care Act.
- The Affordable Care Act:
Specific provisions and simple timelines used to be available within a government-published site. While the information site is no longer available under the current administration, you can link to federal documents through a remaining “glossary” listing about the ACA, and the HealthCare.gov site does provide information necessary for current federal law.
