UNITY, Maine — A community forum on the Affordable Care Act will be hosted by the Waldo Community Action Partners 6-7:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21, at Unity Barn Raisers’ Community Center.
The goal of this presentation is to make you better informed how the ACA will affect you. In coming months, such presentations will be made to many businesses, community, and civic organizations.
Although the presumed target population of the Affordable Care Act is the uninsured and underinsured, the information presented will be useful for everyone.
WCAP has been chosen as the “Navigator” for the Maine Health Care Marketplace for Waldo County. Its job is to educate individuals, businesses, and institutions in the county about their options and responsibilities under the Affordable Care Act.
Leading the community forum will be Bjorn Streubel of WCAP who has been trained to lead this effort. He will cover the facts of the law as it now stands, how individuals will be affected, and the mechanisms in place to facilitate informed participation in the process of purchasing health insurance.
This community forum will provide you with the opportunity to be among the first to learn about the health insurance options available through the Affordable Care Act. The open enrollment period will run from October 1 through March 31.
The community forum will take place at Unity Community Center, 32 School Street, Unity. All are invited to attend. Please feel free to bring a friend. It is free and open to the public
