Program Gives Overview of Health Care Reform
Learn about changes in health care law at an upcoming continuing legal education program, “Health Care Reform Explained; The Good, the Bad and the Unknown.”
This free program is Friday, September 14 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Conference and Event Center at Northeast Ohio Medical University, 4209 SR 44 in Rootstown. It will provide attorneys, advocates and medical professionals with extensive training in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The public is welcome to attend.
CLE credit is available to attorneys who volunteer at a clinic or accept one pro bono case with Community Legal Aid within the next 12 months. 3.0 hours of CLE credit have been requested from The Supreme Court of Ohio.
The practical effects of PPACA on insurance and health care, as well as the effect of the recent Supreme Court decision will be discussed.
Dr. Peter DeGolia, MD, Director at the Center for Geriatric Medicine, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, will present on how the reform affects an individual’s health care. Marie Curry, a Managing Attorney at Community Legal Aid will cover changes wrought by The Supreme Court of the United States. Gary A. Benjamin, Advocacy Director of Community Legal Aid, will give an overview of the health care law that passed. The program includes time for questions and answers.
"The Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and we all need to know what it is about,” Benjamin says. “There's a lot more to it that will help people get affordable coverage and care that hasn't been widely discussed in the media. That's why we are presenting this program. "
