The League of Women Voters St. Louis Park presents
"Health Reform in Minnesota: How’s it going?"
Are you wondering how health reform is going? What’s up with the Affordable Care Act (ACA)? There’s lots of news about the health insurance exchange – what exactly is it and what will it do? Will my health insurance coverage change with the start of the ACA? What is the impact on Medicare? Does this mean everyone in my family and all my friends will now have health insurance that covers preventive care as well as medical care?
These and other issues will be the focus of the February Unit meetings. Hear a presentation about implementation of the Affordable Care Act in Minnesota and get your questions answered at the February Unit meetings.
February 21 7:00 to 8:30 St. Louis Park City Hall
