The Affordable Care Act 101: an enrollment kickoff event!
Oct 01, 2013— 6:00 pm
At 6:00 p.m. on Tues, Oct 1, in Callahan Hall, LPL is hosting Jake Grindle from Western Maine Community Action for an Affordable Care Act (ACA) enrollment kickoff event. Oct 1 marks the start of the enrollment period for Mainers to sign up for health insurance under ACA 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 all 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 six 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.
