The League of Women Voters of Blount County is sponsoring a program, “What the Health Care Reform Law Means to You,” at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 27, at the Blount County Public Library. The program is open to the public.
Panelists Dr. Carole R. Myers and Beth Uselton will provide an overview of the recently-passed national health care reform law. Key provisions of the law, as well as the implementation timeline, will be outlined. Panelists will also discuss what the health care law reform means for those with employer-based coverage, Medicaid, and Medicare; what it means for uninsured individuals; and what it means for small businesses.
Dr. Myers is an assistant professor in the College of Nursing at Knoxville and a fellow for health policy at the Howard H. Baker, Jr. Center for Public Policy.
Beth Uselton is the lead organizer for the Tennessee Health Care Campaign, a non-partisan, non-profit statewide consumer advocacy organization that focuses on health care policy on both the state and national level.
