Health insurance is an important piece of the employment conversation. This webinar, presented by Cancer + Careers, will provide attendees with information about existing health insurance options as well as the changes in healthcare brought about by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), including new consumer protections and health insurance options, and how these changes might affect cancer patients. We will also discuss where states are with regard to implementing various provisions of the ACA and potential areas where advocates can weigh in with decision-makers in their states. Session is free and open to healthcare professionals of all disciplines
