Americans will have to bare a surprising amount of highly personal information when they sign up for the Affordable Care Act, says Nick Tate, author of the bestseller "The Obamacare Survival Guide."

"The federal authorities ask for a tremendous amount of personal information; not just your income and what you do for a living, but what your health status is," Tate told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Maybe if you've ever taken an antidepressant or have something you would rather not be public, they ask for that information. It's part of the application process," he said Tuesday.

Tate says the Affordable Care Act is bringing sweeping changes to healthcare — for  everybody.

"I don't think it's an overstatement to say that virtually everyone in every industry in this country will be touched in some way by these changes," he said.

"The Obamacare Survival Guide" — an Amazon and New York Times bestseller — breaks down the complexities of the law, which are easily confusing.

"You must be a savvy consumer. You can no longer just simply rely on what your company or your doctor or your insurer tells you what the story is," Tate said.

"You really need to figure out what your best options are."
