State holding hearings on Affordable Care Act changes

If you’re a bit lost on what to do before the Affordable Care Act is fully implemented, some help is on the way.

A series of statewide town hall style meetings begins today to help residents prepare for the changes. The Office of the Commissioner of Insurance is hosting the meetings, and will be providing non-partisan information and answering questions about the implementation of the health care law needed by employers, employees, BadgerCare members, and individuals with private insurance.

There are meetings today in Rhinelander, Wausau, Eau Claire, and La Crosse. The teams travel to Milwaukee and Pewaukee Wednesday, Green Bay, Appleton, and Kenosha Thursday, and they will visit Madison and Cleveland Friday.
