Answering Questions and Touting the Benefits of Health Care Reform

In our continued efforts to educate Wisconsinites about how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) benefits all of us, WCCF teamed up with Know Your Care, the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans, and the Wisconsin Alliance for Women’s Health to inform and answer questions with media and citizens in Eau Claire and La Crosse this week.

Since the Supreme Court decision upheld the law this June, our groups agreed that this is a critical time to inform our residents about what’s actually in the law for them. We found that there was still a lot of confusion about the law, and responded to false information. By reaching out to individuals and members of local media, we hope to spread the word about the facts of the law. Read more in the newspaper stories, from the Eau Claire Leader Telegram (front page), “Forum Seeks to Explain Federal Health Care Overhaul,” and the La Crosse Tribune, “Group Works to Educate Public about ObamaCare.”
