Pierce County hosting free, two-hour seminar Aug. 5 on Affordable Care Act Exchange

Rather than being bewildered and befuddled about the Affordable Care Act – which will soon be implemented – here’s a chance to get some perspective.

The state has chosen to establish a Health Benefit Exchange, which is a marketplace where individuals and businesses with fewer than 50 employees can shop for insurance plans.

So what does this mean for you? Pierce County is hosting a meeting early next month where guests can “learn about significant changes to health care delivery and what they mean for your business and your employees. Even if you have more than 50 employees, this seminar can provide information useful to your 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.

The seminar is free but registration is required due to the limited seating capacity. It will be held at the county’s Environmental Services Building, 9850 64th Street W. in University Place on Monday, Aug. 5 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Register online here or call Hans Kueck at 253-798-2335.
