Re: ACA Health Insurance Marketplace Outreach and Enrollment Toolkit for Elected Officials
Yesterday President Barack Obama and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius held a conference call regarding the Affordable Care Act Update. As a follow up to that conference call the Administration has released an Affordable Care Act Health Insurance Marketplace Outreach and Enrollment Toolkit for Elected Officials. The toolkit is available at http://marketplace.cms.gov/getofficialresources/other-partner-resources/outreach-and-enrollment-toolkit-for-elected-officials.pdf.
The toolkit may provide you with some useful information in addressing questions not only from your constituents but your municipal workforce as the implementation of the Affordable Care Act begins.
As a reminder, while the October 21st seminar on ”Understanding the Affordable Healthcare Act” has sold out we added a December 9 seminar at the Conference Center at Mercer County College. Information on the seminar is available at www.njslom.org/seminar-documents/2013-Dec9-Healthcare.html. In addition, during the Annual Conference we will be holding a session on “Health Benefits Reforms: State and Federal Update” on Thursday, November 21 at 10:45 a.m. in Room 403.
We will continue to update you as information becomes available on the Affordable Care Act.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
