Affordable Care Act Help Session Wednesday
October 1, 2013 — The first steps of the national Affordable Care Act take effect today.
The government’s health insurance marketplace is opening as insurance exchanges help people determine their eligibility for health insurance under federal programs and private policies. The programs intend to help people apply for health insurance coverage.
In order to help residents understand the new options the Lake County Minority Health Coalition will host a town hall meeting Wednesday at Ivy Tech’s Gary Campus. The meeting will include elected officials as well as healthcare representatives. A Spanish interpreter will also be on-site to assist Spanish-speaking individuals.
The Affordable Care Act town hall meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at 1440 East 35th Avenue in Gary, and more information about it is available at 219-885-9755.
