Presenters: Barbara Bibel and Kelli Ham 

  • Did you know over 8 million people living in California are without health insurance?
  • Do you understand the basics of the new Affordable Care Act?
  • Are you looking for resources to recommend to your library customers?
  • Do you need tips and ideas for preparing your library and staff for the rush of questions that will come your way?
  • Do you know where to find online forms for the enrollment process?
  • Seeking community partners to assist in the enrollment process?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) goes into effect in January 2014, with open enrollment beginning October 1. Libraries will play a key role in helping their users find information about the specifics of the Act, the choices available to them, and how they can take advantage of the new health care benefits.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Be familiar with the Affordable Care Act
  • Know the role of the public library in helping patrons understand the act
  • Be able to assist patrons in finding information about the act and their choices
  • Be able to provide general assistance in applying for coverage
  • Know how to find partners to help with this process

This webinar will be of interest to public library staff and hospital libraries that serve members of the public.
