The new Affordable Care Act, has many people asking questions and wanting to know how it will impact them. 

Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota, has been helping answer some of those questions on an eight stop tour across North Dakota. Monday, the tour is stopping in Fargo at the Ramada Inn, located at 1635 42nd St. South.

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
  • Critical dates for enrollment

Pre-registration is encouraged because of limited seating. Interested individuals can submit specific questions in advance, as well as register online at www.ItStartsWithBlueND.com or by calling 1-800-280-2583.

Two sessions will be offered at each stop, a morning session from 8:30 – 10:00 a.m. and an afternoon session from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.

The tour moves on to Williston on October 22nd at the Hampton Inn & Suites and Valley City on October 23rd at the American Lodge & Suites.
