The Affordable Care Act, known as “Obamacare,” will be fully enacted come January 1, 2014. But did you know that the new California Health Benefit Exchange (known as Covered California) will be open for enrollment in October?
Our extremely knowledgeable panel consisted of Bonnie Preston, MSPH, Outreach & Policy Specialist at the US Department of Health & Human Services, to discuss basics about the federal law and our state’s exchange; Patricia McGinnis, Executive Director of California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform, on the effects of reform on seniors; Sumi Sousa, Officer of Policy Development and Coverage Programs at San Francisco Health Plan, with a San Francisco perspective. The discussion, including extensive audience Q&A, was both detailed and far-ranging. Another illuminating evening at PHDC!
WHEN: Tuesday, May 7 at 7pm
WHERE: Potrero Hill Neighborhood House, 953 De Haro St
