Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin to host Affordable Care Act (ACA) Forum
Agency to celebrate their 25th Anniversary with advocacy event
In keeping with their tradition of advocating for the health needs of the Black community, the Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin (BHCW) will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with a community forum on the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
The offering of this forum comes at an important time for the community as the open enrollment period for ACA begins on October 1, 2013. The ACA offers an opportunity for thousands of people to access affordable health insurance through the Health Insurance Marketplace (Health Exchanges).
The initial enrollment period for ACA will end March 31, 2014. Qualifying individuals who enroll through the Marketplace by December 15th can begin receiving health coverage in January 2014.
Confirmed speakers for the ACA forum include Shirley Ellis, Senior Advisor for Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Senator Lena Taylor and City of Milwaukee Health Commissioner Bevan K. Baker.
