How the ACA Affects You

How the ACA Affects You


by Don Ingwerson

We have less than a year to go before the ACA (Affordable Care Act) goes into effect. I’ve noticed many news articles that show many people still have questions about what this means for them. A post by the Federal Committee on Publication site tries to alleviate the confusion by appointing someone as the lead person to answer questions from the Field. Here is the post by the Federal office and it can also be read directly from their site by clicking Questions about the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and how it affects you:

The Church’s Office of the General Counsel has hired an individual to help communicate with the Field about this topic. This person is Roger Whiteway, whom some of you may also recognize as the Committee on Publication for Virginia. Roger will certainly not be the sole point of communication with the Field. He will be responding to questions and issues along with others, including those working in our office.

We will continue to send regular updates, including notices of online information sessions, via our newsletters.

There are multiple resources available to you, including:
