Ifyou have questions about the exchange, you will be able to contact an exchange call center and talk with a liveperson who can answer your questions about your health insurance options.To make buying health care coverage more affordable, you may qualify for a subsidy or tax credit so you payless for coverage.

New Wireless Home Security and Automation Technology On The Way in 2013It may sound a little like the futuristic cartoon series The Jetsons, but imaginesitting at work and getting a call from that plumber or pet-sitter whose servicesyou need at your home... then being able to see them on your porch, let them in,and even watch them working... all by picking up your smartphone.AT&T indicated last year that the communications giant would launch wirelesshome security and automation services, and just announced in January thatthese services will become available in March. The new services, offered underthe name AT&T Digital Life, will be available in eight U.S. cities to start, with asmany as 50 more cities being added into the mix in 2013. So far, Ohioans cankeep their hopes up for early access to this new technology; AT&T has not yet 8
  9. 9. indicated which cities will be included in the initial Digital Life service areas. The unique, all-digital wireless-based home security and automation services will allow customers to control cameras, door locks, window sensors, thermostats, appliances, lighting controls and more, all from a smartphone, tablet or PC - regardless of the customers wireless carrier or broadband provider. "The home security and automation market is about to expand significantly," said Roger Entner, Founder and Lead Analyst of Recon Analytics. "As the capabilities and usability of home automation solutions are dramatically improving, installation becoming easier, the value proposition is becoming a lot more attractive to consumers. Not only can consumers protect their home against intruders, but with these new solutions they can save energy, keep an eye on what is going on in their home even when they are away and protect against costly accidents in their home."
