Symposium Looks To Round Out Information On New Healthcare Law

DETROIT (WWJ) – While the finger-pointing over the botched launch continues, a metro Detroit research group is taking a closer look at how well information about the Affordable Care Act is being communicated.

The Center for Healthcare Research and Transformation wants to know how well the healthcare law is being explained.

WWJ Health Reporter Sean Lee reports the Center is hosting a panel discussion with top health care policy experts and national members of the media. The symposium is free and open to the public.

“We’re going to talk about, just generally how the coverage is, how it has helped people, what could be done better to help people better understand this law,” said Phillips the director for the Center for Healthcare Research and Transformation. “And certainly there will be a reflection on how the roll-out has affected people’s perception.”

The Symposium on the Communication of the Affordable Care Act happens Monday at 1 p.m. on the U of M campus in Ann Arbor.
