Employee Benefits Security Administration to host Affordable Care Act webcast in Spanish
Online event will educate workers and families about new law
WASHINGTON The U.S. Department of Labor's Employee Benefits Security Administration will host a free Spanish-language webcast, "The Affordable Care Act: Important New Protections for You and Your Family," on Wednesday, April 10, at 2 p.m. EDT.
The one-hour webcast will help workers of all ages and their families understand how the Affordable Care Act will impact their employment-based group health plans. It will cover protections under the ACA that improve health coverage, many of which are already in effect, including the extension of health coverage for dependents until age 26. The webcast also will discuss protections that will become available in 2014. In addition, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will provide information on the new health insurance marketplace. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the event and will receive contact information for future questions.
