The environment of eXtension.org
is a catalyst for transformation of the Cooperative Extension System of the Land Grant Universities nationwide. The Ask an Expert
feature of eXtension.org allows real people in communities one-to-one question and answers with Extension Faculty and volunteers from across the nation. As 2013 eXtension Fellow
, Megan O'Neil
is working with a team from multiple states and counties of faculty and administrators to tailor Ask an Expert to address people's questions on what the Affordable Care Act means for them and how health insurance is changing in the United States. The goal is to help people make informed choices and predict out-of-pocket healthcare expenses. Through this initiative,
Ask an Expert will be a premier resource for answering questions that lead people to become health insurance literate and to make smart choices for themselves and their families at this opportune moment of epic change in our American healthcare system.
