The Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, is here. Are you ready? Under the law, March 31 is the last day to obtain health insurance without incurring a financial penalty. On Tuesday, the Nevada County Democrats First Tuesday Educational Forum will feature two local health care experts and an insurance agent to help people navigate the ins and outs of ‘Covered California,’ the state’s program implementing Obamacare.
Featured will be Dr. Roger Hicks, director of YubaDocs in Grass Valley, who received his medical degree from Cornell University, completed his family practice residency at U.C. Davis and is a member of the Urgent Care Association of America. Also participating is Debbie Wagner, a registered nurse and director of physician recruitment and community outreach at Sierra Memorial Hospital.
Each speaker will make a presentation, followed by questions from the audience.
Also present will be a Covered California certified insurance agent, who will schedule appointments to help individuals and families comply with the law by finding the right insurance plan to fit their needs and financial abilities. Don’t miss this chance to learn more about how Obamacare will affect the lives of you and your family. The forum will be from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Nevada City Veterans Hall, 415 North Pine St., Lower Level.
