Obamacare’s Impact On Metro Detroit: A ‘Michigan Matters’ Exclusive
An all-star lineup of executives from Michigan’s leading insurance companies appears on “Michigan Matters” this Sunday to talk about the federal Affordable Care Act and what it means to Metro Detroiters.
The Affordable Care Act – referred to as “Obamacare” by some – was approved by Congress and signed into law in 2010 by President Barack Obama. It took effect in January of this year.
Andy Hetzel, vice president of communications at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Claudia Swink, who is in charge of individual policies at HAP, and Joan Budden, chief marketing officer at Priority Health, appear with “Michigan Matters” senior producer/host Carol Cain to discuss the complicated law and its impact on consumers.
Then Cathy Nedd, chief operating officer of the Michigan Chronicle, discusses some upcoming educational forums on the ACA that the newspaper is hosting along with the city of Detroit at Wayne County Community College. The “Got you Covered” forum will be held Thursday, March 27 at WCCC’s Northwest Campus in Detroit.
Watch “Michigan Matters” 11:30 a.m. Sunday on CBS 62.
