Workshop will offer information on Affordable Care Act

It’s the law of the land and ready for implementation, but many are still wondering how nation’s Affordable Care Act might affect them, whether they have health insurance or not, or are covered by Medicare or Medicaid.

On Oct. 23, at 6:30 p.m, the Seabrook Public Library will host a free workshop to help residents learn more about the health insurance options in New Hampshire under the nation’s Affordable Care Act. This one-hour educational session will provide an overview of the Health Insurance Marketplace: who is eligible, how they enroll, tax credits, and options for those with limited incomes.
