OBAMACARE in our state: The latest on health-care deadlines and signups

By Peninsula Daily News staff

IN ADDITION TO articles done by Peninsula Daily News staffers on the federal Affordable Care Act's local and state impacts, we want to share with you a new Seattle Times blog, “Healthcare Checkup."

It is focused on helping Washington state residents understand the Affordable Care Act and how the federal health-care law affects everyone — insured or not.

The blog is produced by Times staffers through a partnership with Kaiser Health News, an editorially independent part of the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health policy research and communication organization that is not affiliated with Kaiser Permanente.

To those without a paid print or digital subscription, The Seattle Times allows access to its website, www.Seattletimes.com, on only a limited basis.

If you visit the site repeatedly, you will ultimately encounter a barrier requiring a subscription.

Here are links to three stories currently in the blog:
