2013 CLUB 20 Fall Meeting-Understanding the Affordable Care Act
Registration is now open for the 2013 CLUB 20 Fall Meeting to be held September 6 and 7 at Two Rivers Convention Center in Grand Junction, CO. On Friday, September 6 the CLUB 20 Board meeting will be held followed by a Chuckwagon Steak Fry at Cross Orchards Living History Museum.
On Saturday, September 7, CLUB 20 in conjunction with the CLUB 20 Education and Research Foundation (as part of a Colorado Trust grant) are pleased to present an opportunity to learn about the impacts to individuals, families, and/or Colorado businesses as the Affordable Care Act is implemented over the next few months.
“We will see significant changes in the way Western Colorado residents and businesses purchase health care insurance as Colorado’s health exchange, Connect for Health Colorado, is launched on October 1, 2013, and the Affordable Care Act becomes effective on January 1, 2014,” said CLUB 20 Chairman, Steve Reynolds.
“CLUB 20 strives to provide relevant information regarding key issues of the day during our Fall Meetings,” said Executive Director, Bonnie Petersen, “we learned from the meetings the CLUB 20 Foundation has conducted over the last two years that Western Coloradans are confused and concerned about the rules related to the Affordable Care Act and what role Connect for Health Colorado will play as the new health care program is implemented. This event will provide an opportunity for people to understand how they can obtain health insurance coverage as well as how to determine if they are qualified for a premium support payment. Business owners will learn what may be required of them in terms of providing health insurance for employees as well.”
See the Draft Agenda below. Be sure to join us for an overview of health care changes that will have far reaching implications for most Western Coloradans.
The two-day event is open to the public. For more information or to register, visit the CLUB 20 website at www.club20.org or call the office at (970) 242-3264. There are a limited number of tickets available for the Friday evening Steak Fry, so be sure to register early!
