“Just the Facts, Please”

Wyoming News Service- Just the facts, please. That’s the name of an upcoming event in Casper where Wyomingites are invited to pick the brains of experts on federal healthcare reform. Consumer groups, healthcare policy consultants, along with federal and state advisors will be on hand September 13th to answer any questions about the Affordable Care Act. Barb Rea with Wyoming’s Consumer Advocates: Project Healthcare says it’s an opportunity to sort through the law’s details without debate.

Rea says there are still a lot of misunderstandings floating around about the law, and the conference is designed to clear up confusion. She says the law covers the basics, and there’s more work to do in the years to come.

The event is free, and Rea says it’s the first in a series to help people understand what the law will mean for them, and their businesses. One Health Voice is hosting the event. Rea’s organization, Wyoming Epilepsy Association, Equality State Policy Center and A-A-R-P Wyoming are some of the groups involved.
