Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) will host a forum designed to educate the community about health care law and its affects on Northern Virginians.
“Navigating the Affordable Care Act: Making Health Reform Work for You and Your Family” will take place Sept. 16 at 7 p.m.
More than 100,000 people living in the 8th District of Virginia go without adequate health insurance, according to a statement from the congressman’s office.
Health care experts will be available to discuss the new range of healthcare options that are becoming available Oct. 1, with policies going into effect Jan 1.
“For the uninsured, the self-employed, small business employees, or those currently purchasing plans on the individual market, it is particularly important to learn how the exchange works and what insurance choices will be made available,” said the statement.
Healthcare experts and community and industry leaders will be on hand to walk constituents through the new law from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria.
