What Will Obamacare Mean for You?

Hosted by

Open enrollment for Affordable Care Act begins in just six months, but many Americans who might benefit don't even know it. Many others are confused — and for good reason. A recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that forty-two percent don't know it's the law; large numbers believe it has been repealed by the US Supreme Court or the Congress. President Obama says the 85 percent who already have health insurance won't be affected, but last week he conceded the roll-out might not be so smooth. What's being done to prevent a possible "train wreck" as Obamacare rolls out? What questions are being asked? What's being done to provide at least some answers before enrollment begins. We talk to the woman in charge of telling consumers what they need to know.
