GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The state Insurance Commissioner’s office has scheduled 11 public meetings for next week, to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act.
Folks have been asking lots of questions about the federal insurance purchasing exchange that will start enrolling people on October 1st – with coverage to begin at the start of 2014.
The Insurance Commissioner’s office is holding town hall forums to explain the subject and provide unbiased information about consumers’ responsibilities.
Around 600,000 Wisconsinites are expected to need the exchange – 90,000 of whom are losing BadgerCare coverage when the program no longer serves childless adults above the poverty line.
The 90 minute forums will be held next Tuesday in Rhinelander, Wausau, Eau Claire, and La Crosse – next Wednesday in West Allis and Pewaukee – September 5th in Kenosha, Green Bay, and Appleton – and September 6th in Madison and the Manitowoc County community of Cleveland.
