White House Conference Call on Health Insurance Marketplaces

September 20, 2013

By Tim Mudd

Beginning October 1, a new Health Insurance Marketplace will open in every state, giving Americans a whole new way to shop for health insurance. These changes, however, are creating a lot of confusion about what the Affordable Care Act (ACA) means for individuals and businesses.  

City leaders are encouraged to join President Barack Obama and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for a conference call with state and local elected officials on Wednesday, September 25, at 2:30 pm EDT.  This is a great opportunity for local leaders to hear from the President directly about the launch of the Health Insurance Marketplace.

In the meantime, more information on the Health Insurance Marketplace can be obtained from HHS’ toolkit for state and local officials and on NLC’s ACA webpage.

Date: September 25, 2013
Time: 2:30 PM EDT (please dial in no later than 2:30 pm EDT)
