Colorado will see sweeping changes beginning in late 2013 in how people obtain health insurance because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Change inevitably represents opportunity – and anxiety. This presentation provides an overview of the anticipated changes as well as details about questions facing small businesses, individuals, seniors and others.

A sampling of the questions answered in this presentation:

  • I can’t afford health insurance. Will I be able to in 2014?
  • What’s happening to my Medicare?
  • I employ a handful of people. Am I going to have to buy them health insurance?
  • Can I switch all my workers to part-time and avoid the whole mess?
