Each session will feature frequently asked questions noted by individuals and families who are facing new choices. Topics covered will include:

  • The impact of the federal requirement that most Americans have health insurance
  • What "essential benefits" are included in every new health insurance plan
  • How to determine eligibility for the federal tax credit to help pay for your health insurance
  • Important factors that will affect your coverage plan choices
