Enrollment is now open in the Health Insurance Marketplace created by the Affordable Care Act, often referred to as Obamacare.
Since it is a complex law and many have questions about how it will work, a group of legislators have scheduled a workshop and panel discussion on Sunday, Oct. 13, at the Levy Center, 300 Dodge Ave., in Evanston.
From noon until 5 p.m., in-person counselors will meet one-on-one with anyone who has a question or is interested in enrolling for health care coverage. No appointment is necessary.
At 3 p.m., a panel will discuss health care policy and the current landscape in Washington, D.C. and Springfield. Scheduled panelists include state Sen. Daniel Biss, D-9th; state Reps. Robyn Gabel, D-18th, and Laura Fine, D-17th; Charles Watkins from the Office of the Governor; and a representative from U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky's office.
