(Batesville, Ind.) - For most people, understanding the intricacies of the new Affordable Care Act can be difficult.
It is important, especially for young people, to understand the changes the Affordable Care Act, widely referred to as Obamacare, will bring and how it will affect their ability to receive health insurance.
The Indiana Youth Institute will host an informational forum that will discuss the Affordable Care Act in detail. The program will take place at the new Ivy Tech building in Batesville on Wednesday, October 16 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. The forum is free and a lunch will be provided, as well. Reservations are required to attend the event, however. Reservations can be made until Monday, October 14.
The IYI’s Youth Worker Cafés are used to bring local youth advocates together to improve relations and collaborations that could help area youth.
The Affordable Care Act forum will feature Kate Keller, vice president of Policy and External Relations for Interact for Health, formerly the Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati.
Reservations can be made by contacting Becky Nobbe via email at email@example.com. Reservations may also be made by contacting IYI Statewide Outreach Manager Debbie Jones via phone at (317) 396-2729 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information, the state of Indiana’s Healthcare Reform website provides a prescreening tool designed to provide guidance in determining if Hoosiers qualify for ACA health coverage. Consumers also can explore the Federal Health Insurance Marketplace.
