Learn About Obamacare Today

Now that the Obamacare website is up and running, community organizations are helping local residents understand the requirements and opportunities available through healthcare.gov.

 

Doug Brown with Brown Agency will be presenting at noon today to the joint Kenai-Soldotna Chambers of Commerce at noon…

 

Brown: “There are numerous people, about a third of the people out there who won’t need to use the exchange, probably even shouldn’t go to the exchange, because there are more options available outside the exchange. The thing that will trigger a need for you to use the exchange is if your income level is such that it qualifies you for tax subsidies.”

 

The luncheon will be held at the Kenai Visitors & Cultural Center for chamber members.

 

For non-members, Tina Wegener with Peninsula Community Health Services will make a presentation at the Kenai Visitors & Cultural Center tonight at 5pm…

 

Wegener: “There’s a lot of people out there that don’t even understand what the affordable care act is or what it means to them or what it could potentially mean to them so I’m just here to help them understand it.”
