Talking ACA and Medicaid in Marion, NC

Monday night this week we had a great educational forum in Marion, NC on giving details of the Affordable Care Act in NC and the opportunity for expanding Medicaid to fill the coverage gap for low income people in our state. Big thanks to City Councilman Billy Martin who helped coordinate the event and got us into the wonderful community building constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps nearly a century ago. Below Nicole Dozier gives the lowdown on the ACA and you can read the article advertising our meeting here. We are heading down east to Beaufort County next and will be back up in the foothills and all over the state in the coming months.
