Webinar for Journalists: What Do Consumers Need to Know About Health Reform’s Changes?

As part of the “Covering Health Reform” series, this webinar provided an overview of how the Affordable Care Act’s impact will vary for people in different circumstances, including those currently with employer coverage, those who buy their own insurance and those who are currently uninsured. The Foundation’s State Health Policy Director Jennifer Tolbert and Senior Fellow Karen Pollitz explained the law’s individual mandate, as well as its new coverage options, including new state insurance marketplaces, subsidies for people with low- and moderate incomes, and new rules prohibiting insurers from discriminating based on pre-existing conditions. They answered journalists’ questions about the law as part of the webinar.

They will also answer journalists’ questions about the new insurance market rules taking effect in 2014 and how to interpret insurance rates.

Covering Health Reform: Web Briefings for Journalists

After more than three years of political controversy and legal challenges, the major coverage provisions of the 2010 Affordable Care Act are set to take effect January 1 — yet polling finds roughly half of Americans say they don’t know enough about the health reform law to understand how it will affect their families. With new state health insurance marketplaces set to enroll people in coverage starting October 1, local and national print, online, television and radio news outlets will play a critical role in educating their audiences about the law’s new realities.

As part of its Media Fellowships Program, the Kaiser Family Foundation presents a series of free, interactive web briefings exclusively for journalists to address key aspects of the the Affordable Care Act, its implications for consumers, and strategies for connecting the dots for different audiences.
