I hope Thurday’s discussion about the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare was helpful. Here is the link to the website if you are one of the 300,000 uninsured Iowans or are someone with private insurance who is looking for a better deal. Remember, don’t panic. You have until March 31st to sign up. But don’t procrastinate! Your insurance coverage could start as soon as January 1 so start shopping!
