Health Insurance and Libraries: Pacific Northwest Region ACA Update - November 13, 2013 at Noon Pacific (11am Alaska 1 PM Mountain).
Libraries are on the front line of receiving questions about the health insurance options now available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Join Nikki Dettmar, Education & Assessment Coordinator NN/LM PNR as she provides an overview on the ACA and the health insurance marketplace options currently operating in our region’s coverage area (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington). The webcast will have a primary focus on consumer health information but will also touch on the Community Health Needs Assessment requirement for non-profit hospitals under ACA, and some examples of successful ACA outreach activities already taking place in public and hospital libraries. Also, take a peak at our ACA resource page for the Pacific Northwest Region and if you are unable to join us next Wednesday, we invite you to view a recording of the webcast at the Rendezvous website later. Update: Recording now available here https://webmeeting.nih.gov/p7yrlvaidso/.
Due to a recent Adobe Connect system update, please test your computer ahead of time to help avoid technical difficulties as a plugin may be needed.
New for 2013: This webcast is eligible for 1 hour of Medical Library Association continuing education (MLA CE) for attending the webcast and completing a brief evaluation form (provided during the webcast). If you are unable to join us then, we invite you to view a recording of the webcast at the Rendezvous website later – the evaluation form will still be accessible and you can obtain the CE for watching the recording.
