Affordable Care Act 101: Understanding the New Health Care Law

Nov 12, 2013— 6:00 pm

Affordable-Care-Act_t607At 6:00 p.m. on Tues, Nov. 12, in Callahan Hall, LPL is hosting Jake Grindle from Western Maine Community Action for an information session on the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  The enrollment period for Mainers to sign up for health insurance under the ACA is now open and experts from WMCA will be on hand to present a video and detailed overview on the new federal law.  This informational event is free and open to the public.

The program will walk participants through the basics of ACA and will explain newly available resources every Mainer should know about in order to fully understand the law.  The presentation will explore the coming changes and review what it means for those that are currently uninsured.  The presentation will also review the law’s impact on Maine businesses and on all of us.

Jake Grindle joined the staff of Western Maine Community Action in February of this year and took the lead in their successful grant application for WMCA to serve as a “Navigator” under the Affordable Care Act.  Over the next few months Jake and his support staff will be conducting public outreach and education sessions about the law and assisting consumers and small businesses in applying for and enrolling in the new insurance options.

More details on ACA information is available on the LPL ACA webpage.  Local residents interested in meeting privately with a certified ACA Navigator should contact WMCA at 1-855-806-7333 or
