Finally! Information on the implementation of Obamacare (as I like to call it)

I am a volunteer at a Food Bank in Colorado and next week I will attend a 2 day seminar that our state Dept. of Health Care Policy and Financing is offering free through Community Partner Regional Trainings. It's for individuals and organizations that assist potential clients through the application process. These trainings are to help build a common understanding of key elements of the ACA and Colorado's ACA implementation plan, and to strengthen community organization capacity to help families understand the application process and benefits potentially available to them.

Sessions will cover:
* an ACA overview,
* changes in Medicaid and CHP+ policy,
* Connect for Health Colorado,
* systems interactions, PEAK,
* the new Medicaid/CHP+ application

For weeks now I've heard clients skeptical and/or fearful of changes to their Medicaid or CHP. On the other hand I have clients who are very excited and hopeful that they'll finally have some kind of healthcare insurance.
