 Free, town hall meetings planned beginning Sept. 26 

Monica Lindeen2Montana Insurance Commissioner Monica J. Lindeen is launching a six-city tour to explain Obamacare to Montanans and answer their questions in advance of the Oct. 1 opening of the new health insurance Marketplaces.

 

The town hall meetings, called “Obamacare in Montana: What You Need to Know” will be free and open to the public. Lindeen will be joined by an attorney in her office who is a nationally recognized expert on the Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare.

 

The dates, times and locations are as follows:

Lindeen and her staff have answered hundreds of questions from Montanans since she launched her Obamacare education website, www.montanahealthanswers.com, in early August. The site allows Montanans to ask their questions directly to the commissioner.

 

“Montanans want real information, not spin,” Lindeen said. “I don’t have a dog in the Obamacare fight. I just want Montanans to know how it works so they can make the best choice possible for themselves, their families or their small business.”

 

The town hall meetings will be an opportunity for Lindeen to speak directly to Montanans about what Obamacare means in our state and answer questions.
