Radio Smart Talk for Monday, February 11:
Shelly Bloom, the president-elect for the Board of Trustees for the Pennsylvania Association of Health Underwriters, and Vik Mangalmurti, Vice-President of HighMark's Office of Health Care Reform, will answer questions about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on Monday's program.
Almost three years after it was enacted, the ACA is still a mystery to many people, including healthcare consumers, providers, and employers.
Radio Smart Talk has focused on the law several times over the past year and yet listeners continue to learn and ask questions.
That's what's Monday's show is designed for -- asking and answering questions.
Much of the attention on the ACA now is related to what employers, who have provided health insurance to their employees, will do. Will they decide it will cost them less money if they no longer offer the health benefits or will they continue to provide health insurance?
We'll look at that and other questions on Monday's program.
Is there a question you would like answered about the Affordable Care Act? Comment below.
