Examining Day 1 of The Affordable Care Act

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

Despite the government shutdown, the Affordable Care Act is here.

Major pieces of the long-contested health care law are officially up and running today, including the important ways that the uninsured can become insurance consumers.

What will implementation really be like? Will there be challenges? How will the law impact minorities?

Joining us to discuss all of this is Mayra Alvarez, Associate Director of Office of Minority Health in the Department of Health and Human services. Welcome to the program.

My Health Insurance at Trader Joe will expire in January because of The Affordable Health Care Act. So, I as well as thousands of others need to know, will The Affordable Health Care Act be able to match the quality and type of insurance I have as a part timer at Trader Joe's or do I need to increase my hours at work?
