At press time there remains a great deal of uncertainty regarding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. It is very likely that the exchanges will open for business in New York on October 1st regardless of congressional action or inaction and that the new plans will begin operating on January 1st. Shawn Cowls and Antony Hom will cover the basics of the Affordable Care Act, what it means to you, and what you need to do. We are working on securing a venue and will post the location in a few days. Please RSVP as soon as you can so we have an idea of how many to plan for.
