CU-CitizenAccess to host conversation on local impact of Obamacare

U of I logo

A series of short videos will show the impact of the Affordable Care Act on Central Illinois at a community conversation on Tuesday, May 2.

The films profile members of the community for whom the ACA is not an abstract piece of public policy, but rather has real life implications, whether that be access to a quality of care not previously available to them or a sudden rise in insurance premiums that unexpectedly cuts into the family budget.
