The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, has left many people wondering how the law will impact them. Clarifi and WOMEN’S WAY are holding this event to help individuals and families understand their coverage options and learn ways to budget for healthcare expenses.

The free event will share the most up-to-date information on The Affordable Care Act and include the following topics:

• Why having health insurance is important
• The basics of budgeting out health care costs
• Factors to consider when choosing a health insurance plan
• How the Affordable Care Act changes the way we shop for health insurance
• How to take the next step and get covered

Event speakers will include Jim Donovan, Consumer Reporter for CBS3/The CW Philly, Emily Wyner, Advocacy & Outreach Coordinator for WOMEN’S WAY, Tiffany W. Thurman, Program Manager for FinanciallyHers and health care representative from Resources for Human Development (RHD).

“We know that women in particular want to know how to get the best coverage for themselves and their families, so it’s critical that they have the information they need,” says Markita Morris-Louis, Vice President of Community Affairs for Clarifi. “Additionally, we realize that health care may be a new expense for some people, so we also want to provide them with strategies to budget for it.”

A representative from Resources for Human Development will also be available to help attendees start the enrollment process for health care. People who need insurance that meets the “minimum essential coverage” must sign up for it by March 31st or they may face a penalty.

To register for this event, visit clarifi.org or call 800-989-2227. Attendance is free and refreshments will be available.
