Held at Twin Cities Community Hospital’s Founders’ Pavilion (Morgan Conference Center Room, 1220 Las Tablas Road, Templeton), the expert-led seminars will run through February 2015.  Each event will include a 10-15 minute presentation about ACA followed by an open format Q&A and seminar period, in which the experts will be available to assist attendees with individual questions as well as the enrollment process.

    In addition to helping attendees enroll into or address problems, concerns or changes to ACA compliant health insurance plans, the seminars will also cover issues of rate increases, billing problems, subsidy changes and new tax filing requirements. The schedule of seminars is as follows:

    • February 7, 2015       10 a.m. - noon
    • February 14, 2015     10 a.m. - noon
