Communities across the nation are taking advantage of the opportunity to benefit from the Affordable Healthcare Act, which will be implemented Jan. 1, 2014 and open to enrollment, beginning Oct. 1, 2013.

On July 29, 2013 from 7 to 8:30 p.m., the Oak Park chapter of Organizing for Action (OFA) will host an open panel discussion for citizens. Oak Park and River Forest residents will be able to ask questions, get valuable information and, in general, learn how the changes can benefit them and their families.

The Affordable Healthcare Act was a pivotal accomplishment for President Obama because it will benefit 1.8 million Illinois citizens who currently do not have health care and will now be able to choose an option for affordable coverage. Enrollment, eligibility and benefits will be explained by the OFA panel.

Health care experts Brian Gorman (director of Outreach and Consumer Education in the Illinois Health Insurance marketplace) and Julie Hamos (director of Illinois Health and Family Services), among several others, will be on hand to field comments and questions at the Oak Park Public Library Veterans Room, 834 Lake St. Oak Park.

Run Away! from Oak Park

No, Taylor. We already know enough. This law is a boondoggle. It has already increased costs, reduced services, and will harm further those it was purported to help. Millions will remain uninsured, taxes have gone up, services will be reduced. This propaganda tour by the Obama campaign notwithstanding, the unAffordable Care Act will go down as the worst piece of legislation ever passed. Do you really believe this stuff?
