Today’s healthcare system is facing sweeping changes. Many agree the current system is flawed, but what are the solutions that preserve what is working and fix what’s not? How this impacts your coverage and your community health services are what matter most.
A panel discussion of leading medical professionals addressed what’s at stake. Panelists explained how changes affect Garrett County health programs, your insurance premiums, your coverage, local services, nursing home care, hospital services and more.
What began as a grassroots group of concerned citizens blossomed into a public meeting focused on learning more about the present health care system and possible changes being debated.
Locally known as the Garrett County Women’s Huddle, a small group formed, looking for answers about how Garrett County residents would be impacted by suggested changes in personal health care coverage and how local services like nursing homes, doctors, and the hospital would be affected. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, often shortened to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was signed into law in 2010 and is the current system for providing healthcare coverage.
