Oregon Computer Consultants' Association Monthly Meeting Obamacare 101: How does it work and what can it do for me?

Program There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss practical problems. Among the topics that will be covered are:

  • What do we need to know about the new healthcare law?
  • Who can get premium subsidies and how do I qualify?
  • What are the tax ramifications for individuals receiving subsidies?
  • How do I get the information I need from the CoverOregon Site?
  • What are the basic things to consider to make sure I'm protected while not paying more than I need to?
  • How do I interpret the details shown on CoverOregon, like understanding whether the deductible covers both drugs and medical services, or is treated separately for each?
