Health care reform is coming…are you ready?
I’ve been following the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in Minnesota pretty closely, and I know how overwhelming the details can feel at times.
But policymakers are deciding right now how to make the Affordable Care Act work in Minnesota. It’s critical for you – whether you’re an advocate, a service provider or an interested citizen – to get informed and ready to speak up. We can’t miss this opportunity to increase access to affordable and comprehensive health insurance!
That’s why the Minnesota Budget Project is co-sponsoring a series of lunch-time discussions on different aspects of the Affordable Care Act.
Over the course of 12 lunch hours, beginning September 27, you can hear from experts and have your Affordable Care Act questions answered. The one-hour discussions will focus on key aspects of the law.
The first discussion features Lauren Gilchrest, special advisor to Governor Mark Dayton on health reform. She’ll give an overview of the law, and highlight opportunities to make health insurance more accessible and affordable for people struggling in the current system.
Future topics include financing the exchange, eliminating health disparities, creating the next generation of MinnesotaCare, encouraging employer-sponsored health insurance, meeting the needs of the disability community and more. A full listing is available on our website.
So, bring your lunch, and join us at one – or all – of these discussions!
