OAKLAND COUNTY COMMISSIONER MARCIA GERSHENSON TO HOST INFORMATIONAL MEETINGS TO HELP PUBLIC
NAVIGATE THE NEW HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
(Pontiac, Michigan)--- On Wednesday, August 28, 2013, and Wednesday, September 18, 2013, Oakland County Commissioner Marcia Gershenson will host a series of informational meetings on the Affordable Health Care Act and teach residents how to navigate the health care system. The first meeting will be held in the Costick Center, located at 28600 Eleven Mile Road, in Farmington Hills, Michigan on August 28th at 7pm, and the second meeting will be held in the West Bloomfield Township Offices, located at 4550 Walnut Lake Road in West Bloomfield, Michigan, on September 18th at 7pm.
Commissioner Gershenson has teamed up with the non-partisan organization, Enroll America, to inform residents, including the county’s 125,000 uninsured residents, about the program at these meetings.
In response to recent polls citing that 78% of the uninsured do not know about the new health care markets and that 83% do not know that they qualify for healthcare, Commissioner Gershenson was compelled to act to get the word out and educate residents about the system.
“As we approach the enrollment season, which begins October 1, 2013, it is important that everyone understands how they could be affected as we begin the educational process,” stated Oakland County Commissioner Marcia Gershenson.
