Health Care & the Affordable Care Act: Why It Matters to You, Your Family and Your Community?
Are you covered? Now that the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) major provisions to expand health insurance coverage are in effect, time is ticking for you to sign up for coverage---Monday, March 31, is the last day to sign up for coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplaces. People of color make up more than half of the uninsured people in the U.S.— and research shows that people of color, across the age span, face significant disparities in physical and mental health.
The ACA has the ability to create a path to better health by offering more affordable health insurance options, improving services and eliminating the usual obstacles. This webinar will provide you with an opportunity to learn about the benefits of ACA and how to enroll for health insurance before March 31st!
