The following is a press release from Pierce County:
The Affordable Care Act is moving closer to full implementation. Washington State has chosen to establish a Health Benefit Exchange, a marketplace where individuals and businesses with fewer than 50 employees can shop for insurance plans.
A free seminar is being offered to help citizens learn about significant changes to health care delivery and what they mean for your business and your employees. Business owners with more than 50 employees are invited as well, to learn information useful to their employees as they make health care choices.
Small Business/Agent Representative Mike Jackling, with the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, will provide an overview of the Exchange and its role in the ACA.
There is no charge to attend the seminar, however registration is required due to limited seating capacity. Register online or call Hans Kueck at 253-798-2335.
The seminar will take place Aug. 5 from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Environmental Services Building on 9850 64th Street West in University Place.
