Join Us for Community Conversations on the Affordable Care Act

Do you have questions about the Affordable Care Act – the new federal health care reform law?  Wonder how it is already helping Nebraskans and what it could mean for our state in the coming years?

If you live in or near York and Seward, you’ll have the chance to get those questions and more answered at a pair of community discussions on the Affordable Care Act this month.

These events, sponsored by Nebraska Appleseed, AARP Nebraska, and the Center for Rural Affairs, will feature an informative presentation on the ACA and how it affects Nebraskans, followed by a Question and Answer session and brief advocacy training by Mark Intermill, Advocacy Director for AARP Nebraska, Jerusha Hancock, Staff Attorney with Nebraska Appleseed’s Healthcare Access Program, and Virginia Meyer, Outreach Coordinator for the Center for Rural Affairs.

Each presentation should last about one hour.

1016 West Elm St.
York, NE
6-7 p.m.

November 29
Seward Civic Center
616 Bradford St.
Seward, NE

For more information, check out The Basics of the Affordable Care Act — Nebraska Appleseed’s quick fact sheet on the ACA that shows the current consumer protections in effect, how Nebraskans will be protected in the future, and the ways that the ACA makes health care coverage more accessible and affordable in our state.

The Affordable Care Act is already helping thousands of Nebraskans, and will help even more with full implementation of the law in 2014.  Please join us to learn how at these two community discussions.
