​Health​ ​Care-​ ​It’s​ ​complicated

The open enrollment period for the Affordable Care Act begins November 1st and will be open for 6 weeks. What are the options for Alaskans? Who needs to sign up and will the cost go up? What’s the status of the new bi-partisan effort to come up with a health care plan? Please join us for a discussion about the ACA enrollment process, the stability of the ACA in today’s political climate, and what the repeal efforts could mean to Alaskans. Joining Co-host Prentiss Pemberton will be two Alaskans well versed in the Affordable Care Act, Jessie Menkens and Jon Zasada, from the Alaska Primary Care Association.
