Navigating the Health Insurance Marketplace
Today is the opening of the Affordable Care Act's "Health Exchange Marketplace," but many Iowans are still confused about their options. Today on River To River, we clear up misconceptions and answer the questions Iowans have while venturing into a new health care landscape.
Host Ben Kieffer sits down with Pete Damiano, Director of the Public Policy Center, Dr. Jean Robillard, Vice President for Medical Affairs at the University of Iowa, and Dan Shane, health care economist and assistant professor at the University of Iowa. Ben also talks with Deb Stehr, an uninsured Lakeview resident who will be accessing the Marketplace in the coming weeks.
