Affordable Healthcare Act In The Carolinas


The Affordable Care Act goes into effect today. Regardless of one’s opinion on the act, we all need to know how it’s going to work, especially since both North and South Carolina have opted out of offering state marketplaces. And both states are not expanding Medicaid and Medicare. The federal government will run our state’s marketplace. What does the federal control of our marketplace imply? Where do we go to view and select our coverage options? How affordable will this be? What if we still can’t afford to insure ourselves, what will the consequences be? Join us for a discussion about how Obamacare will work in the Carolinas.
