US Labor Department to host Affordable Care Act webcast Oct. 24

Interactive program to help workers and families understand law’s protections


WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration will host a webcast Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 2-3 p.m. EDT to help workers and families understand how the Affordable Care Act will impact their health insurance coverage. Assistant Secretary of Labor Phyllis C. Borzi will make opening remarks.


“The Affordable Care Act: Important New Protections for You and Your Family” will explain the numerous protections within the law that help improve coverage, including some that already are in effect, such as children being able to stay on a parent’s health insurance plan up to age 26, and others that will be implemented soon.


The information shared will be valuable to workers of all ages, from those who are just starting out in a career to those who are nearing retirement. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions throughout the webcast. Registration must be completed at, where the webcast also will take place. 


This webcast will take place during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Effective in 2010 under the Affordable Care Act, all new health plans must cover preventive services such as mammograms without charging a deductible, copay or coinsurance. For more information about the importance of early detection and treatment of breast cancer, visit the Federal Occupational Health website at Additional information about the Affordable Care Act is available on the Labor Department’s website at

just another tax
October 17, 2012
well it might be a good thing to go too... but you can bet they are not going to tell you what it is going to cost you... plus it does nothing to control insurance cost, health care cost... like office visit.. over 300.00 dollars...

Really.. and they call that AFFORDABLE?

PEOPLE need to Vote out the sorry no good congress that allowed this to happen!

4500 in new taxes if you can not afford health care.. not to mention the steady rise in your insurance premiums... as well as the cuts in medicare and medicade.. forcing your parents to possibly do with out proper health care!

Really PEOPLE think about it...
