The Nonprofit Assistance Initiative (NAI), a joint program of the Connecticut Community Foundation and United Way of Greater Waterbury, teams up with the Universal Health Care Foundation to offer a workshop: “Connecticut’s Health Insurance Exchange” on Monday, July 29 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Silas Bronson Library Auditorium, 267 Grand St., Waterbury, CT. There is no charge to attend the workshop, but you must register because seating is limited.
Lynne Ide of the Universal Health Care Foundation will present an overview of the federal Affordable Care Act and discuss what the new state Health Insurance Exchange means for nonprofits and their clients. There will be significant change for the uninsured, under-insured and state Medicaid programs as well as for employees of nonprofits. The exchange is scheduled to start January 1, 2014 with registration beginning October 1, 2013, so now is the time to learn the basics and prepare for the changes in the future.
“In the NAI service area, there are over 23,000 uninsured and over 34,000 receiving Medicaid assistance so this information is crucial for nonprofits. There has been confusion about the details of the state’s health insurance exchange, Access Health CT, and we are glad to have the expertise of the Universal Health Care Foundation on this topic.” said John Long, NAI program officer.
